Can you take the heat?


Presenting an edgy classical music experience at Zouk, Singapore’s dance mecca, are two of Singapore’s most exciting musicians Jade Tan Shi Yu (Mezzo-Soprano, www.jadetanshiyu.com) and Churen Li (Piano, www.lichuren.com). Enjoy a cocktail mix of classic and offbeat performative elements with a straight shot of experimentalism, as we question the traditions of classical music performances.
