Symphony announces Young Talents Project grand prize

Singapore’s only classical music station, Symphony 92.4FM announced that the Amadeus Young Talent Prize would be the grand prize for its annual music talent search, the Young Talents Project (YTP).

Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Amadeus International School Vienna, Dr Wilson Goh said: “Young talents (in Asia) now have opportunities to learn from the best in Vienna and experience the very reasons why the best in classical music over the past centuries, have continued to have their inspirations and aspirations from Vienna.”

The Amadeus International School from Vienna will sponsor the prize for three consecutive years starting this year, and the grand prize winner of the YTP will enjoy a trip to Vienna, Austria, to attend master classes with world-renowned musicians at the Nobel Talent School of Music.

 “(We) recognise the challenges of a young musician - they require constant nurturing, exposure to the international scene and a platform to perform. We are pleased that Amadeus International School from Vienna shares the same vision with us, in providing these world-class opportunities to young classical musicians in this region,” said vice president of Symphony 92.4FM, Wang Ya-Hui.

The YTP is open to classical musicians aged 15 years and below. Registration ends on May 10. The top 10 participants will perform at the gala concert, held at the MediaCorp TV Theatre on June 28.

The Amadeus Young Talent Prize consists of the trip to Vienna as well as S$2,000 cash. There will also be the Symphony 92.4FM Prize of S$2,000 cash, and the Audience Prize of S$1,000 cash.
