When Clowning Around is Just Fine

This isn’t your usual outing to the orchestra, with proper concert attire accompanied by hushed tones. In fact, your kids will probably do a double take when they see Melvin the Clown coming on stage.

Melvin Tix is a clownductor extraordinaire who can do it all! He will introduce the young audience to the orchestra, perform brass solos on a mini trumpet, trombone and French horn, as well as conduct the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.

A Clown’s Guide to the Orchestra – part of the SSO’s Concerts for Children programme – will be a lively introduction to the different sections of the orchestra. Who knows? This may just be the thing that gets the young ones hooked on good music.

Starring Petter Vabog as clownductor Melvin Tix, the evening promises to be an entertaining one: from the energetic Circus Polka, to the classical Radetzky March, Op. 228, as well as familiar children’s favourites like Old MacDonald had a Farm and the rousing Carnival for Clown and Orchestra. The hour-long concert is best for children from five to 12 years old. Sadly, there's no admission for children four and under.
