Two Young Singaporeans Perform in Classical Concert at Raffles Institution
The Young Musicians Foundation Orchestra (TYMFO) will be celebrating their second anniversary with a fundraising gala event that showcases two young Singaporean talents at the Raffles Institution Performing Arts Centre on 16 August at 1600 hrs.
Proudly deemed to be one of the newest orchestral groups in Singapore and led by renowned Artistic Director Darrell Ang, the orchestra aims primarily to support promising young musicians to pursue their music careers and raise funds for their education. Its current members include graduates or current students studying in music schools both in Singapore and worldwide. The ‘Young Musicians Foundation Scholarship’ is in collaboration with the Raffles Institution, which manages and distributes the fund.
At this upcoming fundraiser event “Tea for Two”, 21-year-old Singaporean Malay student from the Royal College of Music in London, Ms Nabillah Jalal, will be making her debut with Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 12 in A major (K.V 414). She was the proud recipient of Yayasan Mendaki’s “Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award” and is currently on scholarship with the Trailblazer Foundation. Click here to watch Nabillah's video.
Another young prodigy, 11-year-old Nikolai Song will be performing Stamitz’s Flute Concerto in G major. He has performed in various high-profile concerts in Australia, Vienna and Liechtenstein and won the ‘Symphony 92.4FM Young Talents Award’ in 2013.
Highly-aclaimed French conductor Manuel Jouen, and his protégés will be making their Asian debut at this event. They have many experiences in working with various orchestras in Europe, including the European Community Youth Orchestra.
