Alumni Composers Aloud at the 2019 SYF

YST Conservatory alumni composers were heard loud and clear in this year’s Singapore Youth Festival (SYF). Three of our alumni – Diana Soh (Composition, ’07), Phang Kok Jun (Composition, ’15) and Lee Jinjun (Trumpet, ’16) – were commissioned by the Ministry of Education to write the set pieces for the Choir, Chinese Orchestra, and Concert Band Arts Presentations respectively. We caught up with them to find out more about their works.
