Celebrating German-Singaporean connections and friendship, Beethoven im Garten returns to the Singapore Botanic Gardens after its resounding inaugural success in September 2018 that drew over 6,000 audiences. Once again, Maestro Kahchun Wong will lead principal musicians of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra, this time an expanded group of sixteen, and the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra in a performance of Beethoven’s 6th Symphony, also known as the Pastoral Symphony.
Trained in both Singapore at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music and at Berlin’s Hanns Eisler Academy of Music, and a protégé of the great Kurt Masur, Wong’s rapid rise to the top ranks of the world orchestral league since his win at the Gustav Mahler Competition in 2016 and his lastminute debut and appointment to the Nuremberg Symphony as its Chief Conductor in 2017, has gained him instant international attention.
Audiences are welcomed to bring their picnic baskets and mats to enjoy the lush surroundings of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Admission is free.
