Beneficiaries enjoyed the performance by the Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra and vocalists Rahimah Rahim and Elton Lee.  Those with special needs attending received extra attention to make them feel more relaxed. There was free-and easy entry/exit throughout the performance, sufficient bright lights and guides to help, making it an enjoyable calm space for all attending.

The concert was also recorded for an online screening on 1 June 2023, during which another 1,085 beneficiaries could attend online.

Angklung Workshops

During 2022 and 2023, AMF is supporting 11 Angklung workshops at various senior homes and activity centres. Seniors are exposed to a full hands-on experience with the angklung as they learn to play folk songs as a group.  The participants showcase their playing skills to their friends, family and centre staff at the end of workshops.

Through playing the bamboo instruments, seniors experience the joy of playing music together while enhancing their motor skills, building a sense of community through teamwork.
