Indulge in an unforgettable night of classics by renowned violinist Min Lee and child protégé Samuel Tan! Two remarkable violinists, one musical legacy passed down to the next generation – Min Lee and Samuel share the stage to perform heartwarming renditions of Sarasate’s Introduction and Tarantella, Op. 43 and Wieniawski’s Theme and Variations and the Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
Min Lee and Samuel hopes to share their musical talents with the less-privileged. They are joined by the Wolfgang Sinfoninetta Orchestra and Seia Lee to raise funds for The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) to ensure the children and youth in our community will have equal access to the arts.
BTBAF provides fully sponsored arts training for financially disadvantaged children and youth from 6 to 19 years old. Through nurturing the artistic talents, we also seek to build their values, character and self-esteem. Since 2005, BT BAF has reached out to more than 15,000 young people.

On 19 November 2016, ChildAid Asia held its inaugural symposium event, “Friendship without Borders”, at Suntec City. The event was organized by The RICE Company Limited with the objective of promoting the ChildAid movement in the Asian region as opportunities for young budding artists to showcase their talents on a bigger stage, as well as to raise funds for a worthy cause.
40 distinguished guests turned up for the event. At the symposium, key partners from Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia were also invited to do presentations on the ChildAid movement in Asia and its future direction amidst the different political and socio-economic factors and challenges in today’s world.
ChildAid was established in 2005 with the main objective of raising funds for The Business Times Budding Artist Fund (BTBAF) to provide arts training for young artistic talents, as well as for The Straits Times Pocket Money Fund to provide pocket money to children from low-income families. Since then, it has become one of the largest-scale annual children’s charity concerts in Singapore, with the annual ChildAid Concert attracting large audiences from all walks of life.
We hope this symposium will be a new start in raising greater awareness and further expanding our ChildAid movement to reach out to more children and youths!
