Together with the musicians of TEH Trio, the Musicians’ Initiative presents its first performance of 2021.

In this concert, Musicians’ Initiative will featuring the world premiere of “Concertan-TEH!“, a concerto grosso masterfully composed by the horn player of TEH Trio, Alexander Ian Oon.

The orchestra will also perform the Appalachian Spring Suite for 13 instruments, a work that is in a condensed form of the full ballet composed in 1944 by American composer, Aaron Copland. Popularised by the Shaker folk song “Simple Gifts” and the soundscapes of rural Pennsylvania, this timeless classic has become a mainstay of contemporary chamber music.

TEH Trio has been extremely instrumental in promoting brass music and made a name for themselves particularly during the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore. Being locked down due to the worldwide pandemic, the trio could only “meet” online to record covers of popular pieces for their unique ensemble makeup of Trombone, Euphonium and Horn (TEH).

The artful arrangement of Alexander Ian Oon (Horn), the creative choreography of Kang Chun Meng (Euphonium), and the meticulous mixing of Jasper Tan (Trombone) all culminated in a series of jaw-dropping videos.
