Born in 1996, Kang Chun Meng has been hailed as one of the most exciting young brass soloists in Singapore. Currently, he serves as the Principal Euphonium with the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Central Band and the Lion City Brass Band.
A graduate of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), Chun Meng first began learning the euphonium at the age of nine under the guidance of Singaporean euphonium player, Ng Kok Hin, before moving on to British euphonium soloist Mark Glover from 2013 to 2016. He had also been tutored by renowned soloists such as Shoichiro Hokazono, Adam Frey and Steven Mead.
As a soloist, he has performed both overseas and locally with several ensembles including the Benefiz - Musik und Kultur für andere, Singapore Sounds Orchestra, Singapore Wind Symphony, Philharmonic Winds and Philharmonic Youth Winds. In 2017, he made his debut with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, with a local premiere of Philip Wilby’s Euphonium Concerto, being the first brass soloist in history to be featured in the Orchestra’s annual President’s Young Performer Concert.
Chun Meng is currently a Besson artist in Singapore and performs on a Besson Prestige BE2052 Euphonium.
