Friday 21 June 2013 :
For the first time in Asia, Sing’theatre and the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) brought in “Fête de la Musique” to fill each and every corner of the SGH campus with music.
Aptly titled MusicFest@SGH, this unique edition of the event that started in France 31 years ago made music of different genres accessible to everyone on the SGH campus, including patients, staff, visitors and just about anyone who loves music!
On Friday 21 June, the audience was part of this amazing experience as close to 130 performers from over 35 groups put up 29hours of free live performance throughout the day in the most unexpected spots on the SGH campus.
The professional and amateur artists, students and staff performed their acts at lobbies, wards, outpatient clinics, chemotherapy rooms and open spaces of the various institutions on campus such as the National Cancer Centre Singapore, the National Eye Center, the Health Promotion Board and Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School.
The music galore culminated at the Concert Finale, at 7pm at the SGH with performances by local and international celebrities such as Sebastian Tan, Hossan Leong, Jonathan Leong and George Chan. His Excellency Mr Olivier Caron, Ambassador of France to Singapore, was the Guest-of-Honour.
