With YST marking its 20th anniversary in 2023, this latest concert season serves as a curtain raiser for the monumental year ahead.
A week-long festival celebrating the classic elegance of Baroque music. An internationally renowned brass quintet backed by full orchestral forces playing famous film scores from hits like Jurassic Park and Star Wars. Mesmerising auditory journeys ranging from a funky fusion of electronic dance music and traditional Chinese music, to classic orchestra masterpieces.
These are some of the exciting events and performances with which the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (YST) opens the new academic year and its latest concert season this month.
While this celebration of music has traditionally been part of the Conservatory’s calendar, the latest one is extra special. With YST marking its 20th anniversary in 2023, this lineup serves as a curtain raiser for the monumental year ahead.
Titled “Looking back, Moving Forward”, it features two themes: a fond recollection of YST’s past achievements and an exciting glimpse of the future, as the Conservatory prepares students for the fast-changing musical world of the 21st century.
