Synopsis:

Join the NUS Symphony Orchestra for a relaxing afternoon of flowing melodies from popular opera and theatre.

Hi Beer Brat, thank you for your interest. I am sorry that there is only one session at 3 p.m.

What I could do is to do keep you updated of future similar events, and if there is a photographer that day to take photos, I shall ask for permission to post some photos of the event here.
