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

Because of COVID-19, the SSO, like many orchestras around the world, is going through a very difficult time. Corporate giving and ticket revenues have plummeted due to cancellations.

We hope you will consider supporting your orchestra by making a donation.

"As Singapore's National Orchestra, the SSO will do everything it can to bring joy, solace, inspiration and hope through music... we recognise that many are going through a difficult time, and we are deeply humbled by your continued faith in the SSO despite your own business and personal challenges."
- Goh Yew Lin, Chairman, Singapore Symphony Group.
