Closing Concert: Wings of Resonance
12 Aug 2018, 4:30 PM - 11:59 PM
“Wings of Resonance”, the closing concert of the Traditional Flute Festival 2018 features a stellar ensemble of leading traditional musicians from the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Korea and Japan. Boasting a repertoire of traditional flute classics from the diverse cultures of Asia, we follow the metaphorical trail of a little bird, symbolised by the music of a flute, as he flies all over the land in search of his own identity. Along the way, he crosses paths with his fellow feathered counterparts: an eagle, a pong’kle, a cuckoo, a peacock and a crane. In each of them the little bird sees an embodiment of qualities he aspires towards, including courage, freedom, divinity, beauty and longevity. As his journey draws to a close, the little bird realises that he has learnt something from every one of them that brings him closer to self-revelation. Will the little bird discover who he really is and figure out where he should go from there?
