Lim Yau, conductor

Lim Yau has become a popular figure with the audience in Singapore since his conducting debut with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra in 1983. Besides his contribution to SSO's subscription and choral concert series, Lim has come to be associated with the thematic approach to programming the ever-popular Family Concerts, the Familiar Favourites series as well as the open air concerts.

Lim is equally versatile in the operatic repertoire. Having begun his career with the Bayreuth Festival, Lim made his opera conducting debut with Puccini's La Boheme at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1983. His repertoire has since included Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, J Strauss' Die Fledermaus, Verdi's La Traviata, Lehar's Land of Smiles and Bizet's Carmen. For the Singapore Lyric Theatre, of which he is the Music Director, Lim has conducted their inaugural production of Mozart's Magic Flute in 1991, and has subsequently conducted Lehar's Merry Widow, Rossini's Barber of Seville and Puccini's Madame Butterfly.

A graduate of the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, Lim also studied under eminent conducting teachers such as Franco Ferrara at the Accademia Musicale Chigians in Siena and Sergiu Celibidache (Munich) from whom he won a scholarship to work with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.
