Education is very much a part of the T'ang Quartet, also the Resident Quartet of Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music. As dedicated teachers and chamber musicians, we are passionate about bringing classical music to students, presenting selected works for young audiences. We bring the stage to them in the form of interactive mini-concerts and creative workshops.
As classical music is also experienced by young people on social media, one of our goals is to create easy access to classical music through technology. This way, they can get them involve in various formats of cultural education.
The T'ang Quartet also embarks on special community projects across ages and strata of society. The ensemble reaches out to the elderly, underprivileged and those living in low-income housing and rehabilitation centres across the nation, extending chamber music to places where it is not usually heard.
