ABOUT THIS EVENT
Seven young Southeast Asian composers. One Southeast Asian Golden Age Symphony. How will it all unfold?
The Southeast Asian Golden Age Symphony is a brand-new commission bringing together seven rising composers: Gema Swaratyagita (Indonesia), Hoang Pho (Vietnam), Lee Chie Tsang (Malaysia), Thatchatham Silsupan (Thailand), Danny Imson (Philippines), Jonathan Shin and Syafiqah ‘Adha Sallehin (Singapore). A
rich melding of the composers’ respective cultures and compositional voices, the symphony reflects the vibrant energy and diversity of a region poised for even more exciting growth ahead. Each composer has composed one movement, with the overall symphony brought together through close collaboration and synergy, facilitated by mentor Adeline Wong and working with curator Topi Lehtipuu.
The YST Orchestral Institute is proud to be premiering the symphony as part of the Performers(‘) Present international artistic research symposium.
We are grateful for the support of
Ms Phalgun Raju and Mr Nicholas Nash in making this commission possible.
Stay tuned also for the documentary of the entire SEA Symphony creation process, to be released after the premiere!
Out of respect for other concertgoers, no children under 6 years of age will be allowed admission.
