NUSSO was invited by the Esplanade on 20th October 2013 to perform at the Esplanade Concert Hall as part of their Beautiful Sunday Series. It was a resounding success as we received a full house, the 1600-seater concert hall was packed full with an eager audience. The concert’s theme is “Shall We Dance”, featuring music written for dances. The programme opened with Overture and Galop from Shostakovich’s Gadfly Suite. Other repertoires for the evening included Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Waltz, Gounod’s Faust Ballet Suite as well as Liu Tieshan and Mao Yuan’s Dance of the Yao People.

The concert ended on a high note, as the orchestra played the Radetzsky March by Johann Strauss Sr as an encore piece, as the audience clapped along to the beat.
