About “Singapore Raffles International Music Festival”
We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Singapore Raffles International Music Festival will be held on 13 – 16th August 2015 in Singapore this year. The festival brings together aspiring young musicians from different countries, drawn by a shared passion for music. We hope to uncover talents and unleash creativity among the young musicians during the 4-days festival. The festival features solo competitions for violin, viola and cello as well as chamber music competition. There are numerous masterclasses, workshops and concerts in the festival where participants build friendship among each other and interact with professional musicians.
Singapore Raffles International Music Festival (SRIMF) was launched in 2014. The Festival was a tremendous success. It had drawn much attention and garnered great support from Singapore national artistic organizations and schools from international music community. With the strong support from the community, the participation of the festival events was amazing. Over 200 young aspiring musicians, teachers and parents from nine different countries such as China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Singapore, took part in the competition and events in the festival.
In 2015, Singapore Raffles International Music Festival aims to invite more young aspiring musicians to join in the festival by broadening the opportunities for more young musicians to showcase their talents. This year, the festival has a wider range of competition categories for various age groups. In addition, we also believe that performing chamber music exposes the candidates to a better understanding of how to make music with other musicians. The 2015 Competitions will include categories in Solo Instrumental Competition, Chamber Music, String Ensembles, Wind Ensembles and Brass Ensembles.
