Sarah SanthanaAgree with you Jason! The article is a well written..taken right out of your mouth! And some parts like "thinking outside the box" is very important even for those who are professionals..instrumentalists and vocalists. Sometimes it becomes regimental and if we want the next generation to follow through, they will definitely need fresh ideas and not all theoretical.😊

Jason Lai Conductor shared Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music's video.

Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music
Really looking forward to hearing the YSTCO and Lan Shui tonight when they perform Shostakovich and Mozart. Deeply proud of what the students have achieved and this concert promises to be brilliant end to a busy year! Please join us at Esplanade 7.30....
... See MoreSee Less

Join Singapore Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Lan Shui, as he conducts the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra for the first time. Tonight’s programme features the delightful Sinfonia Concertante by Mozart, featuring faculty members Qian Zhou and Zhang Manchin as soloists. The orchestra will then perform Dmitri Shostakovich’s powerful, tragic and savage masterpiece: Symphony No. 10. Often referred to as Shostakovich’s “portrait of Stalin”, this is the first symphonic work written after the composer’s denunciation in 1948. Limited tickets available! sistic.com.sg/events/mozart0416 Video by: Maggie Wei

Ready to meet some great composers and learn some more about music history? Then Ill see you on Friday and Saturday at VCH....
