Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation sponsored TENG Ensemble debuted in Hong Kong
On the heels of the performance at The Fullerton Heritage, Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation sponsored TENG Ensemble debuted in Hong Kong in June, including two public performances in conjunction with singers Jay Fung and Vincy Chan at Olympian City on 30 June and 1 July 2016 respectively.
TENG Ensemble captivated Hong Kong audiences with their unique integration of Chinese and Western music. Melodious music with a fusion of traditional Chinese, chords, classic and modern Western music permeated through the mall. The 8-strong ensemble performed Singaporean folk songs with Chinese pipa and sheng, Western cello and guitar accompanied by counter tenor. Their re-interpretation of Hong Kong favourites like Under the Lion Rock, through introducing a new, edgy sound to the way it is performed, is particularly riveting.
Twenty children from underprivileged families in Sham Shui Po were also invited to enjoy the show on 1 July 2016.
