In 2017 Canada celebrates 150 years of Confederation and is celebrating the occasion with a range of exciting events throughout Canada and the world. In Singapore a number of events will be held throughout the year.

On February 11, celebrate the 150-day countdown to Canada’s 150th birthday at Singapore Botanic Gardens! Grab some goodies as you make your way to the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, and enjoy a solo performance by renowned Canadian pianist Roger Lord, (pictured above) with opening performance by the Canadian International School’s Grades 9 to 12 Symphonic Band.

Canadian pianist Roger Lord from Moncton, New Brunswick won the First Prize in piano in the Canadian National Festival of Music as well as in the Canadian Music Competition. He was also one of the winners of the Radio-Canada/CBC “Debut” competition and performed 120 concerts for Jeunesses Musicales in Canada and in Europe. His various engagements have since taken him to some of the world’s great cities such as Paris, Oslo, Vienna, Parma, Montreal, Melbourne, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Mexico City, Quito, Cairo, Tunis, Riyadh, Kuala Lumpur, Saigon, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, etc. He has performed as a soloist with symphony orchestras in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. 

After the concert at Eco Lake Lawn there will be a screening of Snowtime!, a 2015 remake of a much-loved animated Canadian family classic. Snowtime is a Canadian film from Quebec, directed by Jean-François Pouliot, it is an animated remake of the 1984 film The Dog Who Stopped the War.
