The Philharmonic Winds have been named the Best Classical Concert of the Year
Date: December 28th, 2015
"We are extremely honoured to do the local band scene proud, by showing that wind orchestras can hold their own against the very best classical groups out there - and to be remembered fondly amongst the hundreds of classical concerts in our lively music scene.
Our deepest gratitude to our three conductors, our Principal Guest Conductor Tim Reynish, our Music Director Leonard Tan, and good friend and composer Luis Serrano Alarcón for leading us in the concert. And of course, to you, our audience, for your recognition. We will strive to do even better in future!"
Luis Serrano Alarcon writes:
"The concert of presentation of the trilogy of Marco Polo in Singapore has been chosen by the Straits Times as one of the best concerts of the year 2015 in Singapore. More than a personal recognition I am proud of the fact that a concert of band has been included in the, sometimes incomprehensible, inaccessible world of classical music. However, there is still much to do."
