Headlining the program will be Saint-SaŽns' beloved Cello Concerto featuring principal cellist of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and AYO alumnus Pei-Sian Ng.

The orchestra is also thrilled to present the world premiere of Andrew Ford's The Meaning of Trees. Commissioned by AYO in 2020, this work captures Ford's response to the changes in our climate, and offers feelings of hope and solidarity in the face of this global phenomenon.
