“After attending their inaugural concert last year, I’ve been quietly looking forward to their 2nd, which was held just a few hours ago. Glad to say that my patience was well rewarded. My choir student pianists and I thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Just like before, it was a world premier for every piece of music presented at the concert! EBM as they call themselves, certainly kept true to their Vision and Mission statements:
1. To encourage living composers to write melodious and universally accessible music.
2. To provide a platform for living composers to showcase their works.
3. To help make the world a better place by offering the public beauty, love, peace and inspiration through the music we present.
Congratulations once again to the lovely Low sisters, Shao Suan, Shao Ying and their team for putting this concert together. I would like to wish them and EBM great success and shall now wait for their next concert.” — F. Liew
