The award-winning Singapore Wind Symphony Percussion Ensemble under the music direction of Axel Jacob will also be performing a carefully curated selection of percussion ensemble music. Highlights include David R. Gillingham's dramatic work, Angels of the Apocalypse and Satoshi Yagisawa's Dithyrambos. Having rehearsed and performed together in Berlin earlier this month, this concert will be the culmination of their collective efforts.
