The Nanyang Technological University Choir (NTU Choir) was set up in 1989 to promote choral awareness among the varsity population and beyond. Since its birth in 1989, the NTU Choir has entertained local and international audiences. The choir is remarkably cosmopolitan, with a common passion for singing and choral music uniting our diversity, and shares its music through its annual concert named Cantemus (English: “To sing”).

Mr Yong was also awarded a Distinction for Conductor award. In 2008, the NTU Choir was crowned Champion of the Folksong category at the 36th Festival of Songs in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
