The National Heritage Board and Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre presents the Music at Monuments series, a series of 4 music videos shot at 4 historical National Monuments!
From songs waxing lyrical about the moon, to rearrangements of popular festive tunes, Singaporeans can immerse in a visual and auditory experience at our historic National Monuments through an all new Music At Monuments – National Heritage Board x Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (NHB x SCCC) digital music performance series.
Showcasing our local talents, these four music videos are produced at the National Monuments, Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), Goodwood Park Hotel, Jurong Town Hall and Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH).
Schedule of Release
From September till December, videos will be rolled out monthly on NHB and SCCC social media pages.
Starting with local a cappella quintet, The Apex Project will perform a medley of English and Mandarin songs associated with the moon, such as ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ and ‘月亮代表我的心 (The Moon Represents My Heart)’, at SYSNMH.
In October, the spotlight will be cast on ACM – a symbol of Singapore's history from colonial port city to independent nation state. Popular Mando-pop singer Derrick Hoh will perform the classic ‘写一首歌给你 (Write You A Song)’ .
The third music video, slated for release in November, will take viewers to the Jurong Town Hall. Popular for their instrumental compositions that reinterpret Chinese music in a contemporary style, local trio MUSA will perform their rendition of a popular Deepavali classic, ‘Unnaikkandu Naan Aada உன் னனக்கண் டு நான் ஆட (As I Dance Upon Seeing You)’, ahead of the major festival celebrated by the Indian community.
In December, the series features a Christmas music video featuring electronic R&B and hip-hop quartet, Fingerfunk. The multi-genre group will perform an all-time favourite Christmas hit, ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, at Goodwood Park Hotel.
