...ooO Profile Ooo... (from 2005)


A homegrown young musician, the 20 year-old Lur Khim Tiam (Lu Xintian), has only a short history in music. Unlike most of her peers in the arena, Lur started rather late at the age of 15 under the tutelage of Ms Qu Jian Qing, the Yangqin Principle of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. In March 2003, Lur took up music theory lessons under Miss Yong Lu Ee to further affirm her understanding of music.


In November 2003, Lur attained the Grade 9 Certificate for yangqin in the Chinese Instrumental Examinations held jointly by the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and Central Conservatory of Music (Beijing, China). Also in the same month, she aced the ABRSM Theory of Music Grade 5 Examinations with a perfect score (100%) Distinction. In December of the same year, Lur successfully auditioned into the newly re-established Singapore Youth Chinese Orchestra, which is an affiliated wing of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.


Since 1999, Lur has been active in school orchestras and other amateur groups, often as a soloist and lead performer. She has also been invited as a guest performer and guest yangqin accompanist for the public concerts of various orchestras, including the Singapore Lyric Opera and the Siong Leng Music Association. 



Lur is currently the Principal Performer and group I/C for the yangqin section of NUSCO, the Principal Performer of SYCO.
