Ivan Choong freered1_thumb_thumb

For: Family, Music

image

Never one to follow a conventional path, Ivan entered the local performing arts scene in 2012 with a role in Dream Academy’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company (Directed by Hossan Leong). Since then he has had the fortune to work, learn from and interact with leading local industry players. Working across multiple disciplines including theatre, opera, and film, Ivan has appeared in operas by the Singapore Lyric Opera, conducted music workshops, and interviewed film directors and actors (including Anthony Chen and Teo Yann Yann).

Though relatively new to stage, singing has been a passion for as long as he can remember. Over the years, Ivan has trained with various teachers and established performers including Amanda Colliver (Australia) and Patrice Micheals (USA). Music, especially musicals, has been a fundamental love and component of his work. Believing that a singer is as much an actor and vice versa, it is with great pleasure that he will have a chance to share how great musicals, like great movies, have a common singular goal: to tell great stories.

When:

24 MAY 2015, SUN

Time:

7.30pm – 8.15pm & 8.45 – 9.30pm

Lee Kuan Yew Exhibitionfreered1_thumb1_thumb

For: Family

To commemorate the Life and work of our founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, The National Museum of Singapore has extended its exhibition on Mr Lee Kuan Yew till May 24.

This memorial exhibition chronicles the life and political career of Singapore’s first Prime Minister and founding father Lee Kuan Yew. It also highlights the ideals and convictions that shaped Mr Lee and his generation of leaders.

Through a selection of photographic images and audiovisual recordings, as well as artefacts from the National Collection, the exhibition begins with Mr Lee’s formative years as a law student at Cambridge and his early involvement in the anti-colonial struggle.

It also traces his political career from the formation of the People’s Action Party, through his Prime Ministership, to his final years of service as Senior Minister and Minister Mentor. Mr Lee’s political biography is inextricably linked to Singapore’s own journey from British colony to merger with Malaysia to Separation and independence.

This exhibition chronicles that journey and pays tribute to his contributions. This exhibition will enable visitors to remember and reflect on the solid foundation that he built for Singapore.

 

When:

till 24 May 2015

Time:

Weekdays and Sunday: 10am to 8pm

Friday and Saturday:10am to 10pm
