The Goh Family Collection
The Goh Family Collection consists of string instruments from some of the most important makers in history. These instruments were accumulated over a few decades by Dr Wilson Goh and Mrs Karen Goh.
Through the generosity of the Goh Family, the instruments are available for loan to promising young musicians or even established musicians for the purpose of furthering their careers, while establishing that the beneficiaries of such instruments must always look out for opportunities to do their part for the betterment of society through their musical performances.
