Reunion: A Concert of Xin Yao and Xiao Yuan Min Ge

Mdm Kang's Kitchen Chilli Crab

  Before the advent of Xin Yao, our days were filled with and enriched by Xiao Yuan Min Ge, Mandarin songs popularised in schools and colleges in Taiwan. Then we Singaporeans began singing our own Mandarin ballads – Xin Yao – through which we expressed our feelings, hopes and dreams.

  Now there is an opportunity for us to relive those yesteryears. Artists from Taiwan and Singapore - representatives of these two genres of Mandarin music - will come together for a reunion concert, organised by Tan Chang Ren Music Station, on 7 & 8 June 2002 at 7.30pm at University Cultural Centre. They will perform more than 50 popular Xin Yao and Xiao Yan Min Ge and in the process, transport all those present down memory lane.

  The line-up includes well-known Taiwanese singers Zheng Yi, Zeng Shu Qin and Joey Cai Tong Zhu; local Xin Yao singers Brenda Tang, hailed as one of the best female singers of the earlier period of Xin Yao and who has not performed in public for many years; Peter Ang, among the first generation of Xin Yao singers; composer-singer Wong Hong Mok, former Talentime winner Alex Su and Tiao Dong Lu Group, as well as singers from Tan Chang Ren Music Station.

  One of the highlights of this concert will be Zeng Shu Qin’s rendition of Shuo Shi Yi Jiu, which is composed by local songwriter Liang Wen Fu, with lyrics by famous Taiwanese writer San Mao. There will also be an interactive “Sing Along” segment during the concert, when audiences will get to sing familiar Xiao Yuan Min Ge and Xin Yao favourites such as Lan Hua Cao, Yu Zhong Ji Jing, Xie Hou, and Kopi O.

  The comperes for the two nights are Joey Cai Rong Zhu, a popular show host in Taiwan, and Liu Xue Lian, DJ of Love 972FM. Ng Yak Whee, a well-known local artist, will design the set for the concert which is co-organised by Radin Mas Community Club, Ang Mo Kio Community Centre and Catalyst Knowledge Club. The supporting radio station is Love 972FM.

  Tickets are on sale at $27, $37 and $57 (inclusive of $1 TicketCharge fee) at all TicketCharge outlets. Call: 6348 5555 or book online: Shuttle bus services available at Clementi MRT, beside McDonald’s, from 6pm onwards.
