Our 2003 Ruckers Double is probably our most popular hire instrument. Since making its debut with two performances by Les Arts Florissants in the series of concerts opening Singapore’s iconic Esplanade — Theatres by the Bay, it has returned to Singapore for Singapore Symphony Orchestra, been heard in Dubai with Seattle Baroque, and toured many times all over Australia with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
