This is a very rare concert in Singapore when we can hear two well-known double bass concertos performed by a professional double bass player. Jacek Mirucki is a section double bassist of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. He is a graduate of the Academy of Music in Poland. Subsequently, he continued his studies in Vienna under Ludwig Streicher at the Hochschule fur Music und darstellende Kunst.
This concert is made possible with the kind support of the Lee Foundation.
Tickets should be available at the door on the day of the concert.
My only hope is that the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (NAFA) could schedule such public concert at a time which would make it more permissible for office workers like myself to attend it. Otherwise, it would be helpful to provide at least three months notice so that I could plan to take leave to attend the concert.
Overall, this is a worthy concert to support, and I wish I could be there.
