Chamber Music and Arts Singapore is established in July 2020.

Formerly known as Tang Tee Khoon Grand Series, a Concert Series that originated from a debut recital Tee Khoon presented in 2009
while playing on a J.B. Guadagnini violin loaned to her by the National Arts Council in Singapore, Chamber Music and Arts Singapore is directed by the same team that has led TTK Grand Series since 2015.

Here is the story relaying the beginnings of TTK Grand Series:

In 2009, as the second-ever recipient of the prestigious violin loan scheme by the National Arts Council in Singapore, Tang Tee Khoon presented a full-length recital at the beloved Victoria
Concert Hall a few months before its large-scale refurbishment.  It was to be an opportunity for her to
reconnect with the Singaporean public and arts enthusiasts who had continually supported her growth as
an international artist.

This event, so warmly received by the public, sparked in Tee Khoon the heart to continue to contribute and
connect with the community in Singapore.  She followed the 2009 debut recital  on the violin with a series of
chamber music concerts in 2010, with a group of colleagues who shared similar values for the community
and the use of music to connect people.

It was this set of concerts that brought talents like the then-youngest member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra,
and the current cellist of the Fidelio Trio to Singapore.  Supported kindly by music enthusiasts in the
education sector and the hotel industry, the ensemble presented a pair of evening concerts at the Esplanade
Recital Studio – featuring almost all of the cornerstone chamber music works of Robert Schumann, and a free
interactive concert for youths.

After this successful run in 2010 which Straits Times described as the best chamber concerts of the year,
Tee Khoon took a hiatus to work on her craft.

She spent half a year as a Music Resident at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada, presented recitals and
solo performances in U.K. and Japan, and worked on her chamber music craft with peers at the Open
Chamber Music Sessions in U.K. .

At the same time, it was being planned for the Series to resume – with a stronger team of
talented visual artists, photographers, website designers, concert hall managers, event and marketing
managers, and the support of leaders from various industries.

Since 2014, it has been with a lot of joy that the Series has been able to present two substantial projects each year within the communities.

We have enjoyed tremendous support from you and cannot wait to embark on a new chapter
as Chamber Music and Arts Singapore Limited – a non-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.
