Singapore Symphony Names VC Rising Star Chloe Chua as Artist-in-Residence

The 15-year-old Singaporean will perform multiple concerts, as well as record numerous works with the orchestra

 

In the unveiling of their 2022/23 season, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) announced that violinist VC Rising Star Chloe Chua will take up a new post as the orchestra's Artist-in-Residence. Aged just 15, Chua has already performed with the orchestra on a number of occasions.

As part of her residency, Chua will perform Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 at three concerts, one of which is a preview event that will be free of charge for students. Alongside these performances, she will make several recordings of works by Mozart and Vivaldi with the ensemble and its new Music Director Hans Graf.

Chua has already made an appearance with the SSO this year, performing both Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and Locatelli's D major concerto "The Harmonic Labyrinth" on the same program in April.

"We are also very proud to announce as the upcoming season’s Artist-In-Residence, an extraordinary and precious young Singaporean violinist Chloe Chua," said Hans Graf.

"Since her win at the Menuhin Junior Competition in 2018, her musical growth has enchanted an ever-growing international following. We are happy to present her in five concerts with the orchestra, including the continuation of our CD cycle of all Mozart works for violin and orchestra with the SSO and myself, to be released as an album in the near future."

A student of Yin Ke at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts School of Young Talents, Chloe's recent solo engagements include performances with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, China Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra, AFA festival Orchestra, Salzburg Chamber Soloists, Russian National Youth Orchestra, Kammerorchester Basel, and the China Philharmonic Orchestra.

In 2018, she was awarded Joint First Prize in the Junior Division of the Menuhin Competition — one of the youngest prizewinners in the history of the event

She currently performs on a 1729 violin by Peter Guarneri of Venice on a generous loan from The Rin Collection.
