4 Apr 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:50 PM
Under the baton of Ms. Sia Swee Suan, the Tanjong Katong Girls’ School (TKGS) Symphonic Band has a track record of excellence in music-making, clinching the Certificate of Distinction at the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation. It was also awarded the Best Secondary School Concert Band of the Year title in 2001. A regular participant of the National Band Competition since 2006, the band has been consistently awarded Gold (First Division) at this biennial competition. The band has also performed at numerous public concerts in Singapore and overseas, including the Band Fiesta and Limelight which feature top school bands in Singapore.
Over the years, the Symphonic Band has been enriched through cross-cultural exchanges with musicians from the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Local artistes and musicians have also conducted workshops and master classes for the Band to sharpen their skills. The band’s biennial concerts and other performances provide them with the opportunities to showcase these skills.
In 2015, the TKGS Symphonic Band celebrated 25 years of excellence with a joint concert between the current and alumni members. This get together was a significant time for all, as the band commemorated the spirit of excellence in music-making.
Come join them this year at Limelight 2018 as they delight you to an evening of exciting repertoire with tunes such as Symphonic Suite from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, The Olympics: Centennial Celebrations and Pirates of the Caribbean.
