A showcase of the poetry-inspired musical works of composers Tan Yuting and Chew Jun An. This performance features a selection of vocal works which set the words of poets, including Oscar Wilde and Singapore poet Dr Tan Chee Lay, to music. From the vivid images evoked by the soundscape of Tan Yuting’s Chinatown, to the complete embodiment of scene and character in Chew Jun An’s In the Forest using vocal extended techniques, audience members can enjoy the diverse musical interpretations of these poems by our Singapore composers!
