This is an interesting and fun interview with David Foong, Australian-born attorney, pianist, violinist, athlete, who has created quite a following on social media during the pandemic accidentally! He created his Instagram account to share his life as an ex-pat living in Singapore with his parents. Then the rest of the world fell in love with his music and athletic sharing.

During the pandemic, living in an apartment in Singapore, David reconnected with his music and started uploading musical shorts which caught my ears! In this interview, you will get to know him more than just a few seconds you get to watch on Instagram. Like many musicians, David learned some new skills in 2020/2021 with editing and collaboration with other musicians around the world. You will get to hear his Instagram upload in response to @TiffanyPoong ’s “What does Classical Music Mean to You?”, Ave Maria with @RoyChen, Liebesleid with Ray Chen @RayChenViolin #PlaywithRay
