Symphony 924

Symphony 924 is Singapore’s equivalent to Classic FM. Each year they host the Young Talents Project, which is funded my Media Corp and ABRSM has been the main sponsor since 2017. In 2019 Ryan Lewis was the adjudicator for the semi-finals and finals in Singapore. Through Mediacorp there is scope to work with other radio and TV channels, for which they would be keen to support ABRSM in its advocacy for music education.
