While I was in Singapore, I got the chance to see the SSO perform works by Haydn and Brahms, under the direction of Claus Peter Flor, the orchestra was truly magnificent and the Victoria Concert Hall had great acoustics. I also have on my iPod a recording of the SSO under their current music director, Lan Shui, which features violinist... More

While staying overnight in Singapore we were fortunate to catch this wonderful orchestra playing at the Victoria Hall, a beautiful concert hall. The guest pianist was Christian Blackshaw who was magnificent. The orchestra's playing of Brahm's 3rd was powerful. We were so impressed that we have booked to see them again at The Esplanade Theatre when we return to Singapore... More

Leading symphony orchestras in the region can be an enjoyable experience. My own experience is with Bangkok and Singapore. Levels of ensemble tend to be very high. Ticket prices at the Esplanade are reasonable, and the hall is a very pleasant venue (and a nice complement to the hall in the Thailand Cultural Centre, if one has not attended events... More

We have been lucky enough to attend concerts here since the 90's and enjoyed the recent Bruckner 8th Symphony and yes three harps and the Wagner tubas. The guest artist was a local musician and the Mozart Piano Concerto no 14 was ably played. We were surprised that although it was difficult to get one of the better seats, there... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
