The Teng Ensemble Ltd
To be a leading and inspirational contributor to a Singaporean sound that is current, innovative, visionary and urban--guided by Asian aesthetics.
Who we are
Founded in 2005, we are a collective of award-winning Singaporean musicians and leading educators, with a shared vision to nurture a Singapore sound inspired by our heritage music that will be recognized internationally as originating from a confluence of global cultures, with a contemporary and sophisticated blend.
What we do
As an arts company, we are focused on the development of a Singaporean musical identity, while promoting Singapore as a regional centre for the development and presentation of the performing arts. From performances to workshops and research, we offer both an entry point and a deeper understanding of Singaporean music to all.
Our performance groups are a combination of the Eastern and Western, as well as traditional and contemporary. Through them, we seek to nurture a Singapore sound and develop a Singaporean musical identity that will be recognized internationally as originating from a confluence of global cultures, with a modern and sophisticated blend.
As a company founded by leading and established music educators, we are committed to providing music education, primarily in Chinese music. Our education efforts range from workshops in schools and through community outreach programmes, to public masterclasses and interactive sessions.
Our research work aims to broaden English language literature in Chinese music and to explore innovative and inventive ideas. Members of TENG have contributed to academic journals, written papers and reviews, and published a book on Chinese orchestral instruments.
