To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Tosoh Asia held a dinner for its distinguished guests at the Conrad Centennial Singapore. Vocalise is proud to present QIN for this commemorative event!
It was an eventful celebration that started off with an LED lion dance performance. The dinner commenced after the Kagami Biraki* ceremony where the management opened lids of sake barrels using their kizuchi (wooden mallets).
The dinner was accompanied by a variety of pieces. QIN’s repertoire comprised of classical pieces such as Libertango, popular songs like Rolling in the Deep and a Japanese piece, Matsuri, which were very well received.
We would like to congratulate Tosoh Asia on their 20th anniversary and wish them all the best in their upcoming endeavours!
