Performing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at the Tanjong Pagar Centre
Piano Lovers Singapore (a.k.a. Pianovers) had convened at the Tanjong Pagar Centre on Sunday night on the 4th of February 2018 to unveil two new pianos. It was a bit of a paradox, given that one of them had a sticky A-flat key (which it took a 5-year old to point out), and that the other one, which had a groovy cage design, didn’t have a music stand!
Nonetheless, our group made more than a decent effort out of it, with a couple of a really good performances from the night.
I had a shot at performing Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – and after a near perfect first verse, it all went south the moment I lost focus and my mind started drifting to matters that were anything but piano related. With that said, it could have been a lot worse, but in the end, I managed to make a half-decent fist of it.
The event has since been featured on the Tanjong Pagar Centre’s website.
