Programme Synopsis Learn from Bards of Neverland, a new, vibrant and energetic string ensemble formed by Singapore’s new generation of classical musicians, on how children and youths can find new ideas and inspirations via an understanding of how a classical string ensemble works. As a music group that has fun experimenting and challenging the traditions of how music is perceived, the Bards will demystify the potentially intimidating genre and spark a sense of curiosity in the students instead. In this presentation (available in both live and digital formats), they would realise that classical music can be just as much fun as pop, rock and indie and that it is another form of creative expression.
