Abstract:
This is a programme booklet with historical significance in Singapore`s musical history, as it documented one of the earliest concerts of Western classical music by a young and almost-completely Singaporean ensemble and choir, conducted by a Singaporean – Paul Abisheganaden, on 12 August 1949, at 7 pm, held at the Palm Court of the Raffles Hotel. This was a first public concert involving young Singaporean musicians: Singapore Junior Symphony Orchestra & Combined Schools Choir.
