Event Details

Shining draws all her thoughts, feelings and memories into her very special notebook, and shares them with Star, her best friend who is a stuffed toy. One day, when an accident threatens to destroy her notebook, Star comes to life with an exciting offer—embark on a wondrous intergalactic musical adventure together! Told live through orchestral music, storytelling and multimedia, join Shining as she creates fond memories, makes new friends, and unravels the mysteries of space!  

This is a Relaxed Environment (RE) performance. RE performance is perfect for anyone who benefits from being able to make a noise, leave and return to their seat or access the toilets during the performance. No modifications are made to the performance.

YST students on stage comprise third year students enrolled in the course ‘Pedagogy for Orchestral Instruments’. In this course, YST students learn about teaching, community engagement and leadership through guiding younger musicians in their instrumental performance journeys and performing side by side with them. In recent years, YST Orchestral Pedagogy students have worked alongside ensembles such as the Aurora Orchestra, DECODA and Lorong Boys, and have mentored younger orchestras including Da Zhong Primary School Symphony Orchestra and the Kids’ Philharmonic Orchestra.  
The Singapore Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (SYPO) is a dynamic ensemble committed to nurturing young musicians who possess a profound passion for classical music. These dedicated individuals are driven by their pursuit of excellence, actively striving to pursue advanced and professional paths in order to transform their musical aspirations into reality. 

Membership in the orchestra is carefully curated through auditions. These musicians are trained to excel as soloists while also being adept team players within the orchestra. Through intensive training and dedicated practice, and with the expert guidance of esteemed educator and conductor Luo Wei, the SYPO is poised to embark on an exciting journey, promising to bring inspiration and delight to all who have the privilege of witnessing their artistic talents. 

Shining in Space is SYPO’s debut performance.

LUO Wei, a distinguished YST alumnus, received his Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance and Post-Graduate Diploma in Violin Performance in 2010. In 2018, he obtained a Master of Music degree in Conducting.In 2012, Luo Wei co-founded kidsphilharmonic@sg and served as the founding Music Director, dedicated to train young children of various ages.
