In the light of Covid-19, the fourth edition of Sunburst turns to the environment for inspiration and for the first time, takes on the form of a virtual concert.

This annual fundraiser since 2017 aims to raise $250K and is in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) (MDAS) and the School of the Arts Endowment Fund (SOTA EF). Funds raised from this online campaign will be distributed equally between MDAS and SOTA EF.

For this year, the 50-minute show will see students of SOTA and members of MDAS responding to their study/work/living spaces in the creation of their performances. Taking off from the concept of the word 'air' as a noun, verb 'air' as the basic essential to life, 'air' as in to voice out important thoughts, and 'air' in reference to a musical work - the concert which will be filmed in a safe and safe-distancing manner examine the connectivity and relevance between space, people and purpose, which in normal circumstance is often taken for granted.

The free for all concert was live on SOTA's YouTube Channel on 19 November 2020, at 8 pm. You can still watch the full concert via the link below.

The concert is organised by The Business Times, presented by CapitaLand, produced by Global Cultural Alliance, a non-profit arts and culture organisation, and directed by theatre practitioner Jeremiah Choy.

About the Charity

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS, is a non-profit social service agency that empowers persons with Muscular Dystrophy and their families through programmes and services. MDAS is a full member of NCSS and a registered charity with IPC (Institution of Public Character) status.

Since our inception in March 2000, our mission is:
- To provide care and support to people with Muscular Dystrophy;
- To provide health and public education on Muscular Dystrophy;
- And to support medical research on Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic physical conditions characterised by muscle-weakening and contractures. Persons with MD face challenges with activities of daily living, from flipping a page in a book, to toileting and bathing. Many persons with MD have to rely on mobility aids, especially a motorised wheelchair, in order to commute. There is currently no known cure for MD.

Your generous donation will go towards supporting MDAS's operating expenditure in providing programmes, services, all supporting costs for over 500 beneficiaries and sustain its operating activities.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
