Led by Music Director Quek Ling Kiong and Associate Conductor Moses Gay, the Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra (SNYCO) is made up of talented young musicians forging ahead to become future pillars of the local music community. Having staged successful overseas performances in Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok and Macao, the orchestra not only aims to facilitate musical growth, but also to give back to the community. As part of SNYCO’s Alumni Collective Programme, this concert is spearheaded by the orchestra’s alumni. SNYCO is recognized as a National Project of Excellence by the Ministry of Education, and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth.
Hailed by The Straits Times as an “excellent young conductor”, Moses Gay’s first foray into conducting began at the age of 16, where he earned great praise from renowned Chinese conductor Ku Lap Man while conducting Phoon Yew Tien’s The Forge Ahead. Since then, he has developed into an outstanding musician, graduating with First Class Honours from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and obtaining a Master’s Degree in Orchestral Conducting at the China Conservatory of Music, both on full scholarship. Moses Gay is currently appointed as SCO’s Assistant Conductor, SNYCO’s Associate Conductor and Music Director of the National University of Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
During the course of his study, Gay was privileged to receive tutelage from eminent conductors such as Roberto Paternostro, Martin Sieghart, Vance George, Mark Gibson, Leon Gregorian, Wolfgang Doerner and Marc Trautmann in various masterclasses and as their assistant, received positive reviews from all. He was mentored by Alexander Polischuk at the Saint Petersburg State Conservatory in Russia and throughout his postgraduate course, received tutelage from Professor Youqing Yang and Maestro Tsung Yeh. While studying at the Conservatory in 2011, he was appointed as SCO’s Conducting Assistant. He has also held the position of Assistant Conductor at the China Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.
Demand for Gay’s powerful conducting style has grown beyond Singapore’s shores. By 2019, he had conducted the Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra (SNYCO) in Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou over two concert tours. Upon invitation, Gay led the National University of Singapore Chinese Orchestra (NUSCO) to perform at the Hsinchu Chinese Orchestra Festival 2019 in Taiwan. In the same year, he was also invited to be a guest conductor for the Wind-Sough Classical Chamber Orchestra in Taichung.
Gay’s conducting experience extends beyond Chinese orchestral music. In 2015, he was invited to collaborate with the Orchestre Régional de Cannes in France, and in 2017 alone, he conducted the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra and the South Czech Philharmonic in Czech Republic, and the Berlin Sinfonietta in Germany.
As an erhu performer, Gay was invited to Rennes, France to perform the Red Plum Capriccio Concerto with the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne and to helm a workshop in erhu performance at the Institut Confucius de Bretagne. He has also been honoured to study with the late erhu doyenne Min Hui Fen and erhu master Zhang Shao. Gay is also currently Executive Member of the Singapore Huqin Association. He owes his musical journey to Zhang Yu Ming, to whom he expresses his heartfelt gratitude.
Bolstering his already impressive portfolio, Gay also works on compositional arrangement experience. His arrangement of Gathering for the StringWerkz quintet received the “Special Prize for Original Arrangement” at the 2013 3rd Terem Crossover International Music Competition in Saint Petersburg, Russia. As Conductor of Jing Ying Chinese Orchestra, he has led them to numerous wins at the National Chinese Music Competiton.
他在16岁时首次指挥学生乐队演奏潘耀田的《奋勇前行》并引起全场轰动，著名指挥家顾立民先生评论恩辉是指挥界的明日之星。2009年底，他在中国音乐学院主办的指挥大师班中获得最具有潜力奖。在留学期间也多次参加了各种国际知名指挥大师班，这些大师有奥地利的、 马丁·西格哈特、Wolfgang Doerner 、美国的凡斯·乔治、马克·吉布森、 Leon Gregorian、法国的Marc Trautmann等。
