Welcome to The Flying Inkpot!
Welcome to The Flying Inkpot. Still Singapore's longest running (c. 1997) website for all classical music and opera matters, we've been a little on/off (more off lately). If you're looking for a review of a concert you've been to but we didn't cover it, then maybe you should write for us. We need knowledgeable writers with an opinion on classical music. If you're that person, please write to The Editor
