Founded in 1979, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is Singapore’s flagship orchestra. We play a hundred concerts a year showcasing a wide range of music: from Baroque to modern, to cutting-edge world premieres by contemporary composers Singaporean and international.
The SSO has been led by our founding Music Director Choo Hoey (1979-1996), Music Director Lan Shui (1997-2019) and currently, Chief Conductor Hans Graf.
The SSO has performed to acclaim in Europe, Asia and the USA, including at the Dresden Music Festival, the Berlin Philharmonie and the BBC Proms in London. Some of the great artistes we have collaborated with include renowned conductors Vladimir Ashkenazy and Lorin Maazel, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Martha Argerich, soprano Diana Damrau, and violinists Janine Jansen and Gil Shaham.
The SSO’s performing home is the 1,800-seat Esplanade Concert Hall. For a more intimate experience, we return to the place of our beginnings, the 673-seat Victoria Concert Hall – the home of the SSO. The VCH is host to our popular Children’s, Family and Christmas concerts, the SSO Chamber Series and our biannual free Lunchtime Concerts. In addition, we travel to various outreach locations in Singapore for our community and outdoor performances. Through the beauty of classical music, we aim to touch the hearts and lives of everyone, regardless of age, culture or background.
