A newly created arm of TTK Grand Series in Jan 2019, TTK Homegrown Series debuted its inaugural formal Evening Concerts in Nov 2019.  TTK Homegrown Series artists Shuxiang Yang and Cherie Khor, as well as a curated line-up of 22 students from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, offered two 1-hour bite-size walks through Mozart’s music on a light-hearted evening at the Esplanade Recital Studio.


Mozart 36 II

In the second bite-size walk through Mozart’s early childhood works this evening, we heard another 3 pairs of piano-violin student duos from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music as well as 8 wind students from the Conservatory offer up Mozart’s Serenade in E-flat major for 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons & 2 horns ~ a work composed shortly after Mozart’s decisive and defiant move to Vienna from Salzburg.  This evening concludes a full TTK Homegrown Series experience for the 22 students from YST Conservatory of Music ~ from receiving private coachings to public masterclasses, from presenting interactive Concerts for Children to formal Evening Concerts.
