Where The River Always Flows V

What The inaugural one-hour digital concert by The Fullerton Heritage and The Teng Ensemble will feature a range of modern hits from the likes of Billie Eilish and Bruno Mars, arranged in the signature fusion sound by the ensemble in their mission to innovate the heritage of Chinese music—making traditional soundscapes relevant to today's modern music scene. 

The project, which is presented in partnership with The Fullerton Heritage, will simultaneously screen the sights along The Clifford Pier and sounds surrounding the hotels to showcase the rich heritage and multi-faceted diversity of Singapore as a tribute to the nation's 55th birthday.

National Day Parade festivities

What National Day this year will be celebrated differently in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing the festivities to screens at home and in the heartlands in a scaled down effort to celebrate the nation's 55th birthday. Themed "Together, A Stronger Singapore", the spotlight will also be shone on the city's healthcare workers who have been fighting the pandemic on the frontline since early this year.

First in the line-up is a National Day message starting at 10am by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Deputy Prime Minster Heng Swee Keat, Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs Masagos Zulkifli and Minister for Communications and Information S Iswaran. The segment will be followed by the morning parade which includes an aerial display of the Red Lions, the Singapore Armed Forces parachute team, who will be making their landing in the heartlands of the city for the first time. 

Celebrations will continue into the evening, where a live show will be streamed from The Star Performing Arts Centre from 7pm, featuring local talents in 11 performances, ending in a slew of fireworks displays across the island.

Vacheron Constantin exhibition

What A stunning selection of female timepieces that span from the turn of the 18th century from Vacheron Constantin's private collection will be exhibited at its Ion Orchard boutique, in conjunction with the launch of its new collection, Égérie, inspired by and dedicated to women around the world. Each timepiece on exhibit has been carefully chosen to be worn and complemented with an outfit for a gala, tea party, lunch, or cocktail reception. Expect a diamond-set and engraved tonneau-shaped ladies' wristwatch from 1929, a 1834 pendant watch in yellow gold and adorned with champlevé enamel work, among many others.
