DOCTORS IN RECITAL: Come and get your MC!

And here's an awful bit of shameless self-promotion.

If you happen to have nothing better to do on Saturday afternoon, and also happen to be in the vicinity of Orchard Towers or the Royal Thai Embassy, you might like to make a visit to Steinway Gallery Singapore @ Palais Renaissance for some music.

Three doctors (the kind you get MCs from) will be performing a short recital on a Steinway grand. They will be joined by a doctor of radiology on violin, and a doctor of cello in a couple of chamber works.

Place: Steinway Gallery, 
  Palais Renaissance, 
  Orchard Road (next to Breitling)
Date: Saturday 
   22 February 2014 (Tomorrow!) 
Time: 4-6 pm 
(I've been told the playing starts at 4.00 pm)

The programme goes something like this:

BRAHMS Scherzo in C minor (FAE Sonata)
GERSHWIN Promenade
MAYERL Shallow Waters
RACHMANINOV Andante from Cello Sonata
Theme from Twilight (Piano Guys cover)
CHOPIN Barcarolle
GRANADOS Allegro de Concierto

Dr Lin Xiumin will be doing the chamber pieces (with Dr Ronald Ling, violinist and Brandon Voo Esq.), Dr Au Kah Kay will take on the virtuoso works, while yours truly the slower and simpler pieces. 

To register, please call or e-mail as in the notice below. I heard that places have been filling up faster than the Accident and Emergency Department of Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

We don't know who Brandon Ang is, but there's only one Brandon Voo Esq.
