The stage is set for budding artists to be in the limelight!
The first concert in the Arts For All Scheme – The Stage is Yours! series kicks off with a veritable mix of music, from Indian classical to English and Chinese pop to acoustic guitar and piano. There will be a special appearance by Sean Wong, who performed the Sing Singapore 2003 theme song. Audiences can also take part in quizzes and win prizes.
Initiated by the National Arts Council (NAC) in November 2003 under its ArtReach programme, the Arts for All Scheme aims to motivate and inspire the practice of the arts at the community level. The Council provides a stage, together with technical and administrative support, for budding artists to showcase their talents before an audience in their community. Application to perform is free.
“The Arts For All Scheme provides another alternative platform to expose aspiring talents to a wider audience,” says Pearl Samuel, Deputy Director for Audience Development, NAC. “The great interest shown in this inaugural programme shows that many Singaporeans are keen to participate in the arts at some level. At the same time, this platform gives budding artists an opportunity to be noticed. With greater levels of participation and exposure, the arts can be even more accessible to all.”
The Arts for All Scheme - The Stage Is Yours! is co-organised by NAC and Central Singapore CDC under its Arty in Central Singapore and Community Life Arts Programme, and supported by Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council.
