Traversing《心 • 音乐 • 汇》marks the launch of Ding Yi Music Company 2023 concert season. Led by Resident Conductor Dedric Wong De Li, with the debut appearance of Guest Conductor Joshua Tan, an internationally acclaimed conductor best known for his captivating and electric nuances, our season opening concert presents a suite of repertoire that reflect our inspirations for Chinese chamber music.


With the world premieres of four commissioned works by renowned composer and Cultural Medallion Recipient Phoon Yew Tien, Ding Yi Composer-in-Residence Jon Lin Chua, young Singaporean composer Koh Cheng Jin and China composer Gao Wei Jie, this concert shines the spotlight on Ding Yi pipa musician Chua Yew Kok, guzheng musician Yvonne Tay, and guest pianist Churen Li. Known for her innovation and experimental practices in combining diverse genres, Churen Li will perform Phoon Yew Tian’s newly adapted piano concerto ‘Youth’ while the two virtuosic musicians of Ding Yi join hands to perform Jon Lin Chua’s ‘Lament for Pipa and Guzheng’.


This season opening concert promises a star-studded evening of musical exchange and melodic conversations. Come forth to join this unique Chinese chamber experience with us!
