After a wonderful sharing session at the National Gallery Singapore earlier this week, we are delighted to return to the National Gallery on Friday. CMH will be hosting a Movin' & Groovin' for Wellness group drumming and dancing session to promote emotional wellness, creativity, and social connection. Registration for the 2pm sesion is sold out, but please join in our open group drumming and dancing jam session (with live improvised music from two amazing Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, NUS, students) from 3:30-4pm in the gallery's atrium.
Centre for Music and Health
After months of planning and organization, it's hard to believe that the Music Research in Singapore Symposium is finally upon us! We really have a terrific set of presentations and panel discussions lined up - feeling very lucky and thankful to have such esteemed and diverse members of the community joining, from academics and musicians, to clinicians, arts organizations, and policy makers. Also happy to share that Lynette Pang, Deputy CEO of the National Arts Council, will be our Keynote Speaker. And of course there will be music, and plenty of it.
I’m thrilled to share that we are officially launching a new Centre for Music and Health at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, NUS! Establishing such a centre has been a dream of mine for nearly 2 decades, and I'm feeling very grateful and excited. I'm greatly looking forward to working with amazing people here at YST, NUS, and the larger community on new music initiatives to improve lives. Can't wait to see what exciting new programs and collaborations will blossom out of the CMH!
