Project IDIOM

Project IDIOM presents a series of concerts showcasing the wide variety of local Classical music. These works span a myriad of different styles, aesthetics, and approaches, ranging from the work of Leong Yoon Pin — often referred to as “the doyen of Singapore composers” — to composers of a younger generation, such as Diana Soh and Emily Koh. Performers include Take 5, Singapore’s premier piano quintet, pianist Nicholas Loh – a fierce champion of contemporary music, and award-winning choir The Graduate Singers.
