This is a post by Josephine (photo left, in center), who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for the Sweet & Sour Pop concert on Friday, 22 June 2012.
Yes! We made it. With the minimal resources we had, we managed to hold a wonderful concert at The Arts House last Friday, 22 June. More than 100 fans and eager concertgoers joined in the fun with the 4 performers, Ben Hum, Chen Yiyuan, Sammmydee and Toh Yifan AKA Tzire. This was my first time producing a music concert, so there were a *super* lot of things to do and to learn in the preparation phase of the concert. But most importantly, it was fun! I knew Ben and Yiyuan from 6 years ago because of the Campus Superstar series and was only able to see them on TV. But this time round, I was able to meet the stars behind-the-scenes!! Took a few pictures with them to show off to my friend. Hah! Although I discovered Sammmydee and Yifan only recently through their YouTube videos, I really enjoyed their live performance!
Through this process, I came to the realisation that it is not easy to organize a concert. We had to deal with a lot of people - performers, sponsors, venue owners, etc. We faced a lot of difficulties along the way, and of course while we all feel we could have done so much more to market and promote the concert, we are still happy with the great turnout! There were also technical difficulties with regards to the venue and the sound equipment, but I believe that everyone who bought a ticket still enjoyed the performance.
We hope to improve and get stronger after each event. Looking forward to the next one!
