Artist Information

Cheng San Chinese Orchestra

Cheng San Chinese Orchestra (CSCO) was established in the late 1990s. The orchestra was reformed under the baton of Mr. Lee Heng Quee in 2012. Currently, Mr. Wilson Neo, a zhonghu musician from the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, sits at the helm of the orchestra as its music director and conductor.


CSCO has staged an annual gala concert series since its reformation. The orchestra constantly challenges themselves by staging highly technical and contemporary works, ensuring a good mix of traditional and modern Chinese orchestral compositions in their concerts. The orchestra also takes pride in providing a platform for talented members to stage concertos annually, spanning across the erhu, yangqin, pipa, sheng and suona, and has even collaborated with local and international Chinese traditional music virtuosos.


CSCO is a frequent performer and collaborator of Esplanade, having staged multiple full-house public performances, with different genres such as pop, Mandopop and Cantopop, Chinese orchestra classics and more, all to rave review.


In the spirit of giving back to the community, CSCO is also actively performing in community shows hosted by Cheng San Community Club, and has also staged multiple free outdoor performances during festive seasons, for the enjoyment of the general public.
