From 24 to 30 June 2019, 12 YST students attended the Chofu International Music Festival in Japan. Led by Festival Director Masato Suzuki, the festival orchestra brought together professional musicians from top Japanese orchestras, student musicians from Japanese high schools and conservatories, as well as YST students to play under the batons of conductors Masaaki Suzuki and Simone Menezes.
On 18 October, alumnus Neil Chan (BMus ’15, RAS) will be performing in the NUS ExxonMobil Campus Concerts (EMCC) series. We catch up with him on his upcoming performance, wide-ranging interests in world music, and artistic journey thus far.
This season, we explore the idea of telling stories in our performances, artistic research initiatives, and programmes at large.
