Kah Chun Wong

Kah Chun Wong (also known as Jun Wong) is a young composer, born in 1986 and based in Singapore. He has studied conducting with Gustav Meier and composition with Oscar Bettison at the Peabody Institute of Music, and considers Jorma Panula and Ya-Hui Wang as his mentors. At the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, where he will graduate with a degree in composition, he is currently conductor of the Conservatory Sinfonia, and regularly assists in student productions. He has been commissioned as a composer by the Philharmonic Winds, the Millenia Institute Symphonic Band, the Singapore National Book Council, the NOMAD Arts Festival, and recent highlights include world premiere performances at the International Saxophone Congress in Thailand, the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore and at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

As a conductor, he has worked with various wind bands and most notably, was awarded a scholarship by WASBE to attend a conducting course with Dr. Allan McMurray of the University of Northern Colorado. For his enthusiasm in promoting the arts in the local scene, he received the Creative Arts Award from Raffles Junior College in 2004. Between 2007 and 2010, his participation in international festivals and masterclasses with Gunther Herbig, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Leif Segerstam has led to opportunities in conducting with the Carlos Chavez Youth Orchestra (Mexico), the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Philharmonia, the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra, the Liszt-Wagner Orchestra of Budapest, the Singapore Sun Festival's Academies Festival Orchestra and the St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic.
