At YST, we seek to open up platforms and pathways for people to pursue their passions and aspirations in music. For Semester 2 of the 2018/19 academic year, we are pleased to announce that 22 Conservatory modules are available to NUS students.
The weekend of 7 to 9 September 2018 was a rich celebration of wind and brass music at YST, with the Singapore Band Clinic, YST Double Reed Day 2018, and the YST Wind Consort in concert at Bandscendence. These events celebrate and continue the tradition of wind band music in Singapore, which began in the early 19th century and has seen an estimated 20,000 students benefiting from wind music education in the past 25 years.
In January this year, YST students and alumni Lo Sheng Hong (NUS Mechanical Engineering ’18, YST Second Major in RAS), Aw Wei Zheng, Leon Teo, Sulwyn Lok, Daniel Tan, Eugene Koo (all BMus Year 4, RAS) and Emilea Teo (BMus Year 3, RAS) set up their own audio company, Poco Productions. We caught up with Sulwyn, Sheng Hong and Wei Zheng from the team on what’s been going on!
