Orkestra Sri Temasek presents a repertoire of classical music with a traditional Malay twist. Popular classical works such as Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Monti's Czardas and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 will be performed with instruments such as the accordion, mandolin and rebana.
Orkestra Sri Temasek (OrST) was established in 2011 by president and co-founder Hanafi Idrus and music director Muhammad Firdaus Mohd. OrST's goal is to seek, sustain and nurture the appreciation of Malay music heritage from the Malay archipelago. OrST is the only Malay orchestra in Singapore that performs with traditional Malay and Western musical instruments, which brings a unique flavour to their songs, some of which are sung in Malay.
