Donate to help purchase instruments for loan to our young talent who cannot afford them to further musical pursuit.

The Singapore National Youth Orchestra(SNYO) nurtures top young musicians to continue building for Singapore a thriving cultural scene into the future.

For a young musician, the opportunity to play on near-professional quality instruments is a powerful transformative experience in their talent development.

SNYO provides loans of such instruments to members who otherwise would not have the means to further their progress. With SNYO's on-going careful use of grant funding, our current instruments are almost 40 years old, and it is time to refresh some of them.

We have recently received a generous and meaningful gift, a new bassoon, from Ms Vivien Goh, who was the youth orchestra's first Music Director. This gift was made in memory of her late sister, Mrs Patricia Wei, SNYO's first bassoon tutor. This was the first time we received a new bassoon in 18 years.

There are many other instruments that need a timely renewal and we hope you can lend a helping hand. Your donation will help build a SNYO general instrument purchase fund, to enable more talented youth to reach beyond their potential.

Your donation will make twice the difference with matching from the Cultural Matching Fund. Donations of $50 and above will enjoy 250% tax deduction for Singapore tax-payers. If you would like to donate an instrument instead, please contact the SNYO office: [email protected]

About the Charity

Because of COVID-19, the SSO, like many orchestras around the world, is going through a very difficult time. Corporate giving and ticket revenues have plummeted due to cancellations.

We hope you will consider supporting your orchestra by making a donation.

"As Singapore's National Orchestra, the SSO will do everything it can to bring joy, solace, inspiration and hope through music... we recognise that many are going through a difficult time, and we are deeply humbled by your continued faith in the SSO despite your own business and personal challenges."
- Goh Yew Lin, Chairman, Singapore Symphony Group.

An arts charity, the Singapore Symphony Group (SSG) manages the country's flagship orchestra, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.

The SSG also manages the Singapore National Youth Orchestra, three choral groups, various music competitions and festivals, as well as concerts at Victoria Concert Hall, Home of the SSO since 1979.
