Homecoming is usually a time of joy and warmth, but when it involves leading an orchestra before an audience of thousands at a UNESCO World Heritage Site — it’s nothing short of a jamboree. YST alumnus conductor Kahchun Wong (‘11) returns to Singapore in Beethoven im Garten, following a dizzying range of achievements abroad.
YST opened the 2018/19 academic year on a very special note, celebrating its 15th anniversary and partnership with the Peabody Institute in a gala concert on 21 August. The gala also kick-started Voyage, a week-long music festival that saw more than 70 YST graduates curating and presenting concerts and panel discussions.
Inspirational life-affirming music-making is at the heart of who we are and what we do at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, National University of Singapore. The Conservatory endeavors to develop passionate musicians who are nurtured by their love for the art and empowered by their ability to make music.
