The Foundation Party is back on 7 October!
Our first Foundation Party was an experiment – to launch a charity party with an anti-gala impulse. It turned out to be a glorious gathering of beautiful people and a conscious joining of souls seeking to do good. This year, we are raising funds for a few iconic projects. As a charity, the Foundation will continue to receive dollar-for-dollar matching from the Government.
We will have the London Philharmonic Orchestra record the “Utopia” symphony that Russian composer Martynov wrote to epitomise Singapore’s development journey. We will launch a 10-year project to commission new music by our local composers, effectively creating a canon of serious Singapore music. As part of our Presidential Coin Project, we have already commissioned 8 portraits of Singapore’s Presidents by prominent Singapore artists.
We will feature four musicians/bands that the Foundation is supporting – Charlie Lim, Alemay Fernandez, Nick Zavior and M1LDL1FE.For the silent auction, we will launch our Foundation app where you will be able to start bidding before the Party.
Once again, it will be a party like no other; confounding the traditional model of the charity gala, which sadly leads to more investments in opulence than the objects of charity. Atlas Bar will be our space, combining the elegance of art nouveau with a sense of the monumental.
