Donate towards a new rendition of our Favourite National Day songs this National Day!

Update on 26 July: digital concert recording pending confirmation

A nation's tunes are the unifying music of its people, and there is no better way to embrace the Singaporean spirit than when we are all joined in song.

The SSO National Day Concert brings together local music and talents, and unites our people in a time like this. This year, we invite you to be part of this meaningful celebration of national spirit.

Please help us reach $30,000 towards a new take of songs that will premiere at our National Day Concert. This is the first time that the SSO is crowdfunding for a Singaporean composition.

Your donation will be pooled with others' donations commissioning a new orchestral version of "Stand Up Singapore", "Count On Me Singapore" and "We Are Singapore". With your help, this medley will debut this August, and Singapore will always remember it as music that carried us through these uncertain times together.

To thank you for the support, the music will be acknowledged as being "made possible by the People of Singapore" in SSO's concert publicity material, and you will be acknowledged in the SSO National Day Concert programme booklet.

Please support this meaningful new composition of our iconic National Day songs!

Donations of $1,000 and above will entitle you to special benefits. Please visit www.sso.org.sg/support

About the Charity

"The arts and culture are in integral part of Singapore which the country must continue to nurture because man does not live on bread alone." - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long.

We do wish for the finer things in life, to appreciate beauty and love, and something uplifting for the spirit. Our nation would not be complete without an appreciation of arts and culture, and without Singaporeans who create artistic and cultural works.

An arts charity, the Singapore Symphony Group (SSG) manages the country's flagship orchestra, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra comprises 90 full-time musicians that play a versatile repertoire of familiar favourites and exciting new works across over 60 concerts a year. The SSG also manages the Singapore Symphony Choruses, the Singapore National Youth Orchestra, the VCH presents chamber music series, the Singapore International Piano Festival and the biennial National Piano & Violin Competition.

While the SSG is supported partially by funding from the Singapore government, a significant part can only be unlocked as matching grants when we receive donations from the public.

If you have been moved by the powerful, enlivening sound of your national orchestra, please support us by making a donation.

For every dollar given, we receive another from the Cultural Matching Fund, making your donation twice as impactful.
