Beverly is the founder of Music and Makan, a salon-style concert series in Singapore that aims to dispel the general apprehension that many young adults have towards Classical music. By combining Classical music and food, Music and Makan provides a casual and intimate setting in which young professionals can feel comfortable listening to performances by up and coming musicians.

Born and raised in Singapore, Beverly holds a B.Sc. in Economics (with First Class Honors) from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She previously served as principal cellist of the Singapore National Youth Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Music Makers, a volunteer orchestra with a focus on philanthropy.

Beverly is now working for Singapore’s National Arts Council, a government linked organization overseeing the promotion of art appreciation in Singapore. Her responsibilities include championing initiatives to further develop the music sector, partnership management with key organizations, and grants administration.
