Music Therapy: Kolintang
We have intensified our music therapy component for our beneficiaries as music therapy is an increasingly recognised therapeutic intervention in the field of cancer care. Based on our experience, we find that both listening to music and active music therapy have corresponding therapeutic effects on the patients facing withdrawal symptoms, fear, anger, anxiety, confusion, boredom, and loneliness.
Our beneficiaries were given many opportunities to perform during our events, such as our annual Charity Dinner, as well as invitations by other organisations. Our Kolintang Ensemble team had also performed twice, upon invitation, for the then President Dr. Tony Tan during the President’s Star Charity Show in 2014, and during Indonesian President Jokowi’s visit to Singapore in 2015.
