Auditions now open for SSO President’s Young Performers Concert 2013

Something the SSO sent to my mailbox:


In search of musical talents for the SSO President's Young Performers Concert next year, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra is holding auditions for Singaporean string, woodwind, brass, percussion and conducting musicians.

Successful candidates will perform as soloist in a concerto with the national orchestra in July 2013. Held at the Esplanade Concert Hall, the concert will be graced by the President of the Republic of Singapore, His Excellency Tony Tan Keng Yam, who is also the Patron of the SSO.

Applicants should be Singapore Citizens. Instrumentalists should be no more than 25 years of age, and conductors, no more than 35 years of age, as of 1 July 2013. They are invited to send in, by 30 November 2012, a brief biography stating their name, age, musical background and contact details as well as a non-returnable DVD recording of their performance of one movement of a concerto to the following address:

c/o Singapore Symphony Orchestra Programming Department
4 Battery Road #20-01
Bank of China Building
Singapore 049908

Shortlisted applicants will be notified in December 2012 to perform a complete concerto in a live audition taking place between January and February 2013. Applicants should arrange for their own pianists to play the orchestral part during the live audition.

Past performers have included conductors Darrell Ang and Joshua Tan, violinists Chan Yoong-Han, Grace Lee and Yang Shuxiang, as well as pianists Abigail Sin, Lim Yan, Jonathan Chua and Gavin Jared Bala.

We regret we are unable to entertain personal inquiries pertaining to the status of individual applications.
