VSQ performs for Asia-Pacific ITC Gala Dinner at the Istana

On 25 June 2019, President Mdm Halimah Yacob hosted her excellency, Ministers and Ambassadors of Southeast-Asian countries such as Cook Islands, Maldives, Cambodia, Brunei etc. at the Istana for the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner.


Vocalise had the honour to be the appointed agent to provide live entertainment for President Mdm Halimah and guests, presenting Vocalise String Quartet at the event. Live music creates a celebratory atmosphere, Vocalise String Quartet played and created an ambience throughout the dinner. They played a mixture of classics and familiar tunes such as Bengawan Solo, Tian Mi Mi, La Vie En Rose and Stand By Me.

Here’s a take of their soundcheck that evening! 

What’s a celebration without a cake? 

Our musicians accompanied the cake-cutting ceremony with a short phrase of “Happy Birthday”. 

It’s always a pleasure to see the guests showing appreciation and gratitude to music and the quartet. Some of the guests have walked up to thank VSQ personally for providing a grandeur yet relaxing atmosphere that evening! 

Here’s a snippet of their performance at the Istana last Tuesday. 


We at Vocalise believe in creating a kaleidoscopic trove of everlasting memories. We understand that cookie-cutter style packages – while convenient – may not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you seek a little more finesse or pizzazz for your event’s entertainment, Vocalise is here to help you realise that. If a particular artiste or instrumental set-up has caught your eye and you wish to discuss further with regard to any specifications, or you’re feeling overwhelmed by thoughts and ideas on what sort of live entertainment would be most ideal, feel free to chat with us! We’d love to hear from you, and we’d be more than happy to mix things up for your event.
