Vocal Workshop by Wong Yunqi

Best Graduate of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts’ Diploma in Music programme in 2006, Wong Yun Qi has since received her Masters of Music in 2012 at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. She has collaborated with singers including Neele Kramer, Lee Peixin, Mareike Morr and Polina Pasztircsák, trombonist David Friedrich and flautist Christine Müller. Also, her interest in contemporary music has resulted in collaborations with composers including Walter Zimmermann, Vytautas Miskinis, Zechariah Goh and Ko Matsushita, among other soloists, directors and ensembles.

In this workshop held at [email protected] on 9 and 11 September, Yun Qi worked with our vocal students and shared valuable concepts of the interpretation of German lieder; in particular, Robert Schumann’s Liederkreis, Op. 39, of which the Vocal Department performed as part of the NAFA Concert Series: The Evening of Song Cycles, on 25 September 2014.
