Member - Choral Directors' Association (Singapore)
Derrick Kam is a Singapore choir conductor, music arranger, and vocal artist.
Despite being a music autodidact he has put on many hats within the vocal community, inspiring people through community singing initiatives with the National Cancer Centre, National Library Board, and many others. He was also the music director for the National Cancer Centre's 2019 Harmony for Hope fundraiser concert.
Derrick is the conductor of several school choirs, some of which are active in their various communities aside from the annual Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentations. He also directs TAS Voices, an award-winning adult contemporary a cappella pop choir, and Accord, a projects-based vocal ensemble. He also sings with local pop-jazz a cappella group Acappuccino and has represented Singapore at major regional festivals with them.
Occasionally dabbling into the craft of writing and arranging, Derrick has arranged folk, and contemporary a cappella music for a variety of groups and he aims to continuously hone the craft to allow access to quality works for people of all levels. Arrangements by Derrick are published by MUZIKSEA and SheetMusicPlus.
Not one to idle around, Derrick can be found kayaking occasionally if not doing music, or he'd be on his Kindle reading.
