Wheels Asia - - In the scene -

Bor­neo Mo­tors kick-started its 50th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion with the 27th edi­tion of Toy­ota Clas-sics, a mu­si­cal char­ity event that was held on 4 Novem­ber 2016 at the Capi­tol The­atre. 2016 also marks 50th An­niver­sary of Sin­ga­pore­japan Diplo­matic Re­la­tions (SJ50). In line with the be­lief that mu­sic knows no bound­aries, this will be a cul­tural cer­e­bra­tion be­fit­ting the two na­tion’s long-last­ing friend­ship through a night of mu­sic.

Since 1990, Toy­ota has pro­moted clas­si­cal mu­sic to sup­port char­i­ties across Asia, host­ing over 190 con­certs through the years. With the theme, “Mu­sic that Moves Lives”, Toy­ota Clas­sics aims to touch the lives of peo­ple both within and be­yond the con­cert hall. This year’s pro­gramme cele-brated a mu­si­cal mile­stone for Toy­ota Clas­sics with the in­tro­duc­tion of “Sing­phony” fea­tur­ing Singa­pore-born pi­anist and com­poser Pamela Tan-ni­chol­son and highly ac­claimed artis­tic di­rec­tor and vi­o­lin­ist Vasko Vas­silev. The Baltic Neopo­lis Orches­tra from Poland who has per­formed widely in Europe since 2008 and won the Pol­ish Grammy for Best Mu­sic Al­bum in 2015 also joined them.

This year, Bor­neo Mo­tors and Toy­ota ded­i­cate the fundrais­ing ef­forts to Singa­pore Chil­dren’s So-ci­ety, a vol­un­tary wel­fare or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­tects and nur­tures chil­dren and youth of all races and re­li­gions, es­pe­cially chil­dren, youth and fam­i­lies in need. Es­tab­lished in 1952, its ser­vices have evolved to meet the chang­ing needs of chil­dren and youth. The mis­sion of Singa­pore Chil-dren’s So­ci­ety is to bring relief and hap­pi­ness to chil­dren in need, re­it­er­at­ing Toy­ota Clas­sics’ ob-jec­tive of cre­at­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact in com­mu­ni­ties.
