Music For You
“Music For You” is a caring series performance to spread love and joy to the community through music. Over the last 3 years, we have worked with various partners to bring our music to them, including Jurong Community Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and many others, and received many positive feedbacks from them.
Traditional Chinese music alludes to something outside itself… a story, a great literary work, a poem, a painting or an emotion or aspect of nature. To us, composing, interpreting and performing Chinese chamber music transports us to realms – from the historic to the contemporary and avant-garde, from places exotic and familiar, from the sensual to the surreal.
At Ding Yi, it is not only about the sounds we make, but also the journeys we take. Each piece is carefully crafted to take you with us, from the cloistered chambers of an imperial age to the expansive imaginations of our modern collective soul, to touch, entertain, understand, inspire and unite.
It is this passion and our commitment to artistry that has won us accolades and support of patrons, arts institutions, and chamber music fans across Asia. The journey begins with us, and continues with you. Won’t you join us on this journey as we explore and create a distinctly Singapore sound?
