Wong believes in the power of music to inspire young musicians and foster their growth, mirroring his own journey as a musician from a young Southeast Asian country. In 2016, after winning the Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition, he co-founded ‘Project Infinitude’ with Marina Mahler, the granddaughter of the renowned composer. He has also worked closely with Child at Street 11, a nonprofit Singaporean agency supporting more than 100 children from underserved and diverse backgrounds. In 2019, together with BR-Klassik and Stadtsparkasse Nürnberg, he conceived and led a collaborative television project that raised donations for a nonprofit association for children in Germany.
In December 2019, Wong became the first artist from Singapore to receive the Order of Merit by the Federal President of Germany for his dedicated service and outstanding achievements in Singaporean-German cultural relations and the advancement of German musical culture abroad.
