Biography

Vincent Tan’s refusal to accept the stereotype of the euphonium has moulded him to become a multi-faceted musician.

Vincent is a founding member of The Brass Compass Euphonium Quartet, which won first prize in the Chamber Music Category at the International Tuba and Euphonium Conference (ITEC) held in Knoxville, Tennessee (2016). He also represented the Royal Northern College of Music at the Philip Jones Tribute Concert held in the St. John Smith’s Square in London, after winning the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Competition held at the Royal Northern College of Music (2016).

His interest in innovative and non-conventional performance presentation has led him to become one of the founding members of KU, a Singaporean mixed-instrumental ensemble that focuses on creating unique and immersive concert experiences and storytelling.

On the education front, Vincent has been a clinician in events such as the Kuching Youth Band Festival, Wind Band Association of Singapore Youth Leadership Workshop, Festival Winds organised by the Band Directors’ Association of Singapore and the nWinds Wind Weekend.

Apart from this, Vincent is also the producer and host of the You Play A What? podcast.

His primary teacher includes Dr David Thornton, Fredi Sonderegger and Steven Mead
