More free stuff

Posted on November 15, 2006 by Aun

{NOTE: AS OF 1014AM ON WEDNESDAY, 15 NOVEMBER 2006, THE TICKETS HAVE ALL BEEN SNAPPED UP. CONGRATS TO PING LAN, DAVID, VENISHA, AMANDA AND JACLYN! Please do not send me any more entries. Thank you.}

Regular readers will know that from time to time I’ve been giving away free tickets to performances by Singapore Lyric Opera. I’m a fan of this under-appreciated and often under-funded performing arts group. In exchange for an ad space for each of their concerts, SLO gives me several pairs of tickets, which I in turn pass onto you.

This December, SLO is putting on “All That Jazz”, a concert featuring popular pieces that straddle the line between jazz and opera. A great example might be music from Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin and Richard Rodney Bennet, which they have on their programme.

I have 5 pairs of tickets for the evening (8pm) performance on 8 December 2006 to give away. The seats are excellent. The concert is being held at the UCC Hall at the National University of Singapore.

To win a pair of tickets, just email me (at aun@chubbyhubby.net) the correct answers to the following questions:

1. What was the real name of the jazz musician nicknamed Bird?
2. What famous Chicago-based chef is a huge jazz fan and compares his cooking with jazz improvisation (hint: he has a jazz band playing on his TV show)?
3. In which town in which country is the opera Porgy and Bess set?

Tickets will be awarded to the first 5 persons with correct answers. Please note that this is only open to Singaporean or Malaysian residents.
