Kahchun has been selected as one of ten finalists for Singaporean of the Year by the Straits Times in 2017. He will be represented by children from the non-profit organisation Child at Street 11, who will receive the award from Warren Fernandez, Editor-in-Chief of Singapore Press Holdings' English/Malay/Tamil Media. President Halimah Yaacob will serve as Guest Of Honour for the ceremony.
Kahchun's work with Child at Street 11 will continue in 2018 with an ambitious musical curriculum that includes cultural expeditions to concert halls, attending opera rehearsals, participating in inclusive and sensory friendly chamber concerts, learning about Mahler's 5th Symphony and co-composing their own nursery rhyme.
