3rd Biennial Singapore International String Conference (SISC)

Singapore  --  October 7, 2010  --  Mark your calendars for a spectacular musical event in early December! In association with the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, Artistes International is proud to present the 3rd Biennial Singapore International String Conference, which will be held December 1-4. The conference activities will be conducted in the music conservatory’s state-of-the-art facilities located at the Kent Ridge campus of the National University of Singapore.
     Some 300 string teachers and young students from Singapore and across the world are expected to attend this international conference, which will feature several celebrated string clinicians and acclaimed practitioners of international stature. Some of the renowned string clinicians who will be sharing their professional knowledge and artistic expertise with conference attendees include such luminaries as Christian Howes, Helen Brunner, Gabriel Bolkovsky and Timothy Durbin.
     The conference has already earned the national recognition of the Singapore Tourism Board, which selected the event to be designated as a YourSingapore.com event. SISC is expected to be an exciting landmark event underscoring Singapore’s thriving arts scene. The conference will serve to enhance our nation’s synergistic efforts toward making Singapore a global hub for the performing arts.
The collaborative brainchild of two established local string musicians who received their professional training in the UK and USA, SISC provides a nurturing environment for string musicians as young as two years old to experience the passionate joy of making glorious music with their string instruments. The founding directors, Ken Tan and Yap Shu Mei, decided some years ago to craft their own innovative formula based on their personal experiences of having attended some of the established summer music camps and professional conferences in Europe and America.
They firmly believe that Singapore possesses the innate capacity to host an international conference specially designed for string teachers and young string musicians. Sensing a dire need for such an innovative concept to be birthed on local soil, they decided to establish Singapore’s very own international string conference that’s devoted to musicians who play the violin, viola, cello, double bass and guitar. SISC was conceived as an urgent call for action to help remedy the drastic shortfall of string teachers and string musicians here in Singapore, as compared to other developed nations across the world. This condition is especially critical for the viola, cello and double bass.
Since its inception, the conference has served as a concerted endeavour to help foster string studies among our youth. SISC hopes to captivate the hearts of young musicians and inspire them to pursue the study of a string instrument – be it the violin, viola, cello, double bass or guitar. There is already a proliferation of young piano students across our national landscape, and it is the directors’ ardent wish to encourage our youth to study a string instrument as a viable alternative. Not only are there obvious advantages gained from the portability of a string instrument, but there is also the added bonus of experiencing the pleasure of collaborating with other musicians in a community music ensemble or orchestral setting.
Now in its third edition, SISC has been attracting world leading string pedagogues who unhesitatingly journey to Singapore biennially in December to share their knowledge and expertise with conference participants. This is a rare opportunity for string teachers and young string musicians to learn new skills and gain invaluable insights into the different musical styles of various cultures from around the world. Conference attendees will be able to learn from world-class string musicians who will not only help them improve their playing, but also inspire them to soar to heights of artistic excellence.
     SISC offers several levels to suit the artistic needs and technical capabilities of conference participants:
§         Beginner
§         Primary
§         Elementary
§         Intermediate
§         Advanced
§         Young Artist
Enthusiastic string musicians are strongly encouraged to sign up now for this amazing biennial international string conference. The deadline for regular registration is October 31. For more information, please call 6250 1911.
