Quarryside Chamber Music Series: Young Pro Platform – Towards A Sea Change

15/07 (Saturday) 5:00pm
Approximately 1 hour without intermission

Towards A Sea Change Chamber Series visualises the musical creativity of the talented and versatile Young Pro Platform (YPP) players combining the theatrical and choreographical designs curated by Becca Cheung. 


In an unconventional and intimate setting with audience engagement, the programmes reveal the contemporary tastes of today’s young musicians. They will seek to offer the listeners the warm and rich sounds of the brass instruments, the many possibilities of string playing beyond traditional string quartets, the unusual combination of wind instruments and the colourful sounds of ensembles with percussion. You will also hear YPP’s own arrangements of Chick Corea’s Children’s Songs and Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun as well as experiencing players as the narrator for Mark Fish’s Ferdinand the Bull, breaking the boundaries of the expectation of a musician’s role in this rapid-changing contemporary world. 


The series is directed by Artistic Director Sharon Andrea Choa with the Artistic Team of YPP and sponsored by the Society of the Academy for Performing Arts (SAPA).
