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.
The Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music and NUS Mind Science Centre collaborated to host A Celebration of Choral Singing on 2 February - a musical evening in more ways than one. Guests gathered to learn about the Choral Singing for the Prevention of Dementia Study, and enjoy choral performances from the senior citizens’ choir as well as YST Conservatory performers led by Maestro Masaaki Suzuki.
A warm welcome from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, National University of Singapore – and best wishes for 2017! We enter the new semester and year with a new focus – to share ever more possibilities to listen to music in new light. With this calendar, we offer an introduction to a wealth of opportunities to experience the finest music across a mix of genres and contexts.
