Violinist gets rare violin
SINGAPOREAN violinist Tang Tee Khoon, 25, is the new recipient of a rare Guadagnini violin under the National Arts Council's (NAC) instrument loan scheme.

Other promising musicians who wish to play a fine instrument can also do so in the future, as the council is setting up a $1-million seed fund to acquire new stringed instruments to loan out.

Called the Singapore Musical Instrument Bank, it matches dollar for dollar donations made by corporations and individuals. Private instrument collectors are invited to donate their instruments to the bank.

Tang takes over the instrument from US-based Singaporean violinist Siow Lee Chin, who was the first beneficiary of the scheme and who played it for eight years.

The US$430,000 (S$648,000) violin was acquired in 2000 with contributions from the Far East Organization, the Lee Foundation and the NAC.

NAC's Guadagnini violin was crafted by J.B. Guadagnini in Milan in 1750.

It will be loaned to Tang for two years until May 2011. The loan period may be renewed, depending on the new round of applications in two years' time.

NAC chief executive Lee Suan Hiang said at a press conference yesterday that the violin loan scheme helps young musicians here achieve their full potential.

He said: 'We want them to excel internationally, and to do that, they need more than talent. They need a good instrument to help them produce the best sounds and great tonal colours.'

PHOTO: Are you having a laugh? Read in the paper that two violinists were warned about practising their violin inside their home because of complaints from the neighbours that their actions were regarded as 'anti-social behaviour'.......... They were warned to desist - or face prosecution!!.........

沈文程-心事誰人知

From: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ree6Leg0qg&feature=related

作詞:蔡振南 作曲:蔡振南
*心事那沒講出來 
有誰人會知
有時陣想要訴出 
滿腹的悲哀
踏入七逃界 
是阮不應該
如今想反悔 
誰人肯諒解
心愛你那有瞭解 
請你著忍耐
男性不是沒目屎 
只是不敢流出來*
