SINGAPORE SAXOPHONE SYMPOSIUM

During the Singapore Saxophone Symposium we had a pleasure to work with young composers from Singapore, Korea and China. Together with their mentors: Chong Kee Yong (Singapore/Malaysia), Zechariah Goh (Singapore), ChihChun Chi-sun Lee (Taiwan/USA/Korea) and Michael Sidney Timpson (USA/Korea), we consulted works of students and gave advices on saxophone possibilities and notation.
