“On Wednesday, 27 Feb 2013, two highly accomplished musicians, composer Emily Koh and conductor Wong Kah Chun, were awarded the inaugural Paul Abisheganaden Grant for Artistic Excellence.

Despite being only 26 years old, each of the talented artists have won awards from Singapore and overseas arts institutions in recognition of their outstanding vibrant gifts. Besides being invited to conduct performances (Wong) and commisioned for musical works (Koh), they have also contributed back to the community through Kids’ Philharmoni@sg or teaching music to the less privileged respectively.”
