Here is an exciting concert that contrasts the contemporary with the traditional, with Terry Riley's In C and Beethoven's Symphony no.5 in C Minor forming the programme. You get to sit and even play between musicians and watch the NUS Centre for Quantum Physics perform a presentation with the music as well.

Terry Riley's In C
A recipient of NAC's Seed Grant from 2014 to 2017, the Asian Contemporary Ensemble launches its 2016 season, entitled Beethoven's Destiny, with XPerienz: In C. Our interactive musical journey unfolds with Beethoven's 5th Symphony in C Minor, under the baton of our Artistic Director Kahchun Wong, who is currently holding a fellowship in music education with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Audiences get to sit between musicians and experience the performance from the inside out! During the intermission, an informal FAQ session will break down barriers completely, setting the stage for the highly interactive second half of the evening - A reading of Terry Riley's minimalist work "In C", where audiences are invited to bring along their musical instruments and jam together with us! Come and join over 40 musicians performing on a tantalizing "rojak" of western and Asian ethnic instruments!
XPerienz: In C is a production conceived in collaboration with the NUS Arts Festival 2016, and also features science in musical action by the Centre for Quantum Technology.
