For our annual September outreach concert titled Screen Gems, NUS Symphony Orchestra presented an afternoon of best loved classical works which have been featured in films and movies. The concert was generously supported by ExxonMobil Campus Concerts and VivoCity. It was the first time NUSSO performed at VivoCity, which presented new challenges to the orchestra as the afternoon sun was strong, but the heat could not stifle our musician’s enthusiasm at presenting an exciting performance to a large crowd of 800.
Strauss’ Die Fledermaus Overture and Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 1, movements from Tchaikovsky’s immortal Swan Lake ballet and recognizable tunes such as Haydn’s Symphony No.94 “Surprise” were featured in the concert. The concert ended with a bang as Mr Lim returned to lead the orchestra in a rousing rendition of the Can-can Overture.
NUS Symphony Orchestra would like to thank everyone who made this outreach concert a success!
