Let's Think Beyond is a series of programmes curated for the "Black & Gold" theme at library@harbourfront for this November and December. During this period, we wish to engage the community in diverse areas and think about the discrimination and stereotypes that govern us. We invite you to think beyond: be open, embrace differences and act for harmony.

On 16 November, we are delighted to invite Mr Chng Hak-Peng, the Chief Executive Officer of the Singapore Symphony Group (SSG), to discuss issues of stereotyping and discrimination in primarily classical music.

More about the speaker:

Mr Chng's involvement with the Orchestra began 10 years ago as a volunteer, contributing to a number of key strategic projects for SSG’s management and musicians. This led to his being appointed Deputy Chairman of its board, where he focused on strategic and organisational reviews, highlights of which included leading a team that integrated the Singapore National Youth Orchestra into the company. He enjoyed playing in school orchestras and wind bands as well as singing in choirs. His affinity for music of any genre is only matched by his love for Chinese history.
