The title Indulgence captures the essence of KR Harmonica Ensemble's journey and vision. It comprised esteemed alumni from the NUS Harmonica Ensemble, and each member has chosen to indulge in a shared passion that might be fading from the mainstream but remains timeless in its allure. These professionals, amidst their demanding lives, have surrendered to the call of the harmonica, showcasing an indulgence not in luxury, but in love and dedication.
The concert's repertoire is a dual exploration of indulgence. In the first half, we are treated to classical pieces that invite the audience to delve deeply into the harmonies and complexities of an era gone by. The latter half, peppered with popular songs, offers a different kind of indulgence – a nostalgic journey back in time, reminding us of moments where music was our only escape.
In Singapore, where the harmonica's melodies may not always find a vast audience among the youth, Indulgence stands as a testament to the importance of immersing oneself in one's passions. It's a celebration of those who choose to dive deep, to persist against the odds, and to indulge in what truly moves their soul.
