Celebrating 15 Years: Peabody-YST Gala Concert

  • Conservatory Concert Hall YST Conservatory 117376 Singapore (map)

2018 marks 15 years of collaboration between the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music and the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, USA. This period has seen wonderful partnership on initiatives including the Joint Degree Programme and student exchanges between both schools, as well as musical collaboration that has accompanied YST on its journey.

Join us as we celebrate this special milestone with a gala concert featuring alumni and faculty from YST and Peabody.

This concert also kickstarts Voyage, a festival of public concerts curated and performed by YST alumni, that seeks to present classical music in vivid new light.
