JONATHAN SHIN, Piano

Jonathan Shin is a Singaporean composer-pianist who performs extensively as a soloist and chamber musician, and improvises across multiple genres. He has won prizes for his piano performances in North American and European competitions, as well as awards in all age categories of the locally-based National Piano and Violin Competition.

Shin’s music has been described as “supremely confident and comfortable in its own skin.” (The Straits Times)—his first commission, The Other Merlion and Friends, was critically reviewed as “probably the most compelling and worthwhile new work from any Singaporean composer in recent years.” In 2020, his concert overture City Arising was premiered by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra for its annual National Day concert.

Shin’s works have been premiered and performed in Europe, Asia, and North America. He is a founding member of the Lorong Boys, a multi-genre group.
