We are celebrating our 25th anniversary with the launch of a new album, Trampled Souls, our third album in over a decade.
Trampled Souls showcases a diverse combination of styles, ranging from sheer darkness to fantasy to quirkiness. The common theme of darkness, albeit in varying forms, running through the pieces gives rise to the album title. It reflects our perspective of works that have shaped us over the years, collectively and individually.
We would like to invite you to our first public performance of Trampled Souls at one of Singapore’s national monuments, the Armenian Apostolic Church of St Gregory the Illuminator. Gazetted in 1973, the architectural masterpiece is a tribute to the Armenian community in Singapore.

With every new year, we offer specially crafted programmes under the National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) to introduce students to the world of classical chamber music and to encourage classical music appreciation. Hooked on Classics is suitable for students of all levels and is open for booking in 2016.
This Christmas, we hope to create one last enchanting memory of a momentous year together with you.
Adding to the sentimentality of the season is a smidgen of nostalgia mixed with the essence of the present and a hint of the future, as we return to the Victoria Concert Hall, our very first performance venue – and a place we will always call “home”. Special guests joining in the merriment are organist Margaret Chen and The Graduate Singers.
So, do come on by – enjoy the classical pieces that we once filled the Victoria Concert Hall with in the 1990s together with popular festive tunes infused with irrepressible warmth, as we celebrate both homecoming and Christmas.
Let’s make it merry, everyone!

An invisible dance of music, light and space is the premise of this exquisite musical odyssey curated by the T'ang Quartet. Each of the three concerts explores the influences and inspirations that have moulded the T'ang Quartet.
In Guts & Steel, the T'ang Quartet collaborates with pianist Melvyn Tan. They eschew the 20th-century technique of playing classical pieces with steel strings, modern instruments and techniques. Instead, they play the harpsichord, fortepiano and other period instruments to bring the music of Mozart and Boccherini to life.
Black Angels reveals musical visions of darkness and light – from the ecclesiastical passion of Hildegard von Bingen's Prayer, a 12th-century composition, to George Crumb’s intensely urgent Black Angels and John Tavener's mystical The Hidden Treasure.
Rounding up this epic series of concerts is Celestial Remnants. Here, the T’ang Quartet, together with an ensemble of young musicians, traverses generations to celebrate the universality of music.
