After-Hours at PV: Chamber Music and Arts Singapore presents 'A Woman’s Love & Life'

$128

This May, Plain Vanilla and Chamber Music and Arts Singapore come together to present Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben 'A Woman's Love and Life' — an intimate evening distinguished by a 3-course dinner of comforting, hearty flavours and live classical music by concert violinist Tang Tee Khoon, and classical guitarist Hunter Mah.

Playing a selection from Schumann's cherished song cycle, 'A Woman's Love and Life', enriched through poetry and musical conversations with two wildly talented (and affable) artists, we invite you to gaze into the journey of the protagonist – from her first encounter with love to her eventual marriage and motherhood – with sensitivity and depth, as we reflect on the themes of love, longing and joy together.

Just in time for Mother's Day celebrations, we welcome both classical music lovers and non-connoisseurs alike for a mesmerising evening of unbridled music-making intertwined with sweet and savoury flavours, poetry reading and thoughtful discourse with the musicians and twenty four diners.

To reserve a spot, simply checkout with your preferred date – separately from other products.

Described as ‘a chamber musician of the highest order’, and a ‘national treasure’, her playing as ‘truly transcendent’, Tang Tee Khoon was named one of the 40 under 40 faces to watch by Prestige Singapore. She is the second-ever violinist to be awarded the loan of a J.B. Guadagnini violin c. 1750 by the National Arts Council in Singapore from 2009-2017.  Founder & Artistic Director of Chamber Music and Arts Singapore, Tee Khoon performs internationally as a recitalist and a chamber musician and has collaborated with musicians such as Midori, Hsin-Yun Huang, Ian Swenson, and members of the Emerson, Takács and Borromeo String Quartets. Tang Tee Khoon mentored with Donald Weilerstein in Boston and David Takeno in London U.K.

1st-prize winner at the 2008 Sierra Nevada Classical Guitar Competition, Singaporean classical guitarist Hunter Mah was a multiple prizewinner at the Philippine National Music Competitions for Young Artists, and gave his debut solo recital at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines at age 12. In Singapore, he received technical grounding from Robert Luse, and studied harmony with Cultural Medallion recipient Phoon Yew Tien. Hunter earned his Bachelor of Music and post-graduate Professional Studies Diploma at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music under mentors Dusan Bogdanovic and David Tanenbaum. He was conferred his Masters degree cum laude, under Carlo Marchione at Conservatorium Maastricht. In addition to lecturing at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore, Hunter’s private studio is sought after by players of all levels, from young children to professional guitarists.
