“Numinous was really just an idea that had always been at the back of our minds for a few months before we managed to find proper footing and get it off the ground. As many in the band world have experienced, it’s been difficult for our members to bring back heavy instruments and risk getting complaints from their neighbours while practicing. Even with a little more breathing room, it’s been difficult to navigate – even with all the band’s hard work, some of it came down to pure chance,” said Nicole Tandjung, President of NPCB.
“We took Numinous as an opportunity to challenge the limits of what a virtual ensemble can be and how our options have expanded now that we’ve shifted online, and we’d like to invite everybody to come down and take a look at what we’ve been working on,” Vice President Teo Zhi Hao added.
The virtual concert will feature ensembles from various sections, with Studio Ghibli music from Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, as well as Disney music ‘A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes’ from Cinderella and ‘Part of Your World’ from The Little Mermaid.
“Numinous, to us, is that first step that NPCB can make towards being able to play together again, which is why it means so much to us. It’s been heartwarming to watch the band slowly come back to life again – and we hope you can come celebrate a step further back to normal with us!”
