About this Event
MOB-16: Fantasies, Hopes and Wishes, represents our 16 years of handbell innovations and creative work in Singapore and internationally, establishing a Distinctly MOB & unique Singaporean-style of making handbell music. Our work is greatly influenced by the communal factors of inclusiveness, community outreach and the constant demands of artistry excellence. This is a high energy musical evening at our 16th concert, thru handbells, featuring original locally composed and arranged handbell music & works from the Big Screens, Contemporary, Disney, Musical Theatre.
A SENSORY-FRIENDLY + FAMILY-FRIENDLY Handbell Show:
Technical accomodations are made for the comfort of all the audiences. This show is suitable for the general audience, while sharing the same space with persons with disabilities / special needs & their families.
Bringing together locally premiered works with very well-known international music titles & an established & exciting (& unique) Traditional English Handbell Ringing art-form combined with educational bantering (linking the different styles/music/titles) with acting, multimedia & sensorial-experiences (visual-sounds-touch-hear-sight-movement), our handbell concerts will be a totally new experience for many of our audiences.
The MOB-16 is fronted by Traditional English Handbells, combined with 2 co-story tellers (R.Chandran, & our conductor), in addition to local professional artists and foreign guest ringers, joining us to boost up our artistry and presentation.
MOB-16 will be led by our Principal Conductor, Damien Lim, and sharing the stage with him are MOB’s Conductor Stephy Neo & returning since 2019: one of America’s most prominent handbell figures, Michael Glasgow.
