TPJC Symphonic Winds- We ARE the Music Makers

Written by Tng Loong Hua Aaron (08S09).

The Band is one of the pioneer CCAs when TPJC first started in 1986. Under the baton of many prestigious conductors, TPJC band has grown significantly into what it is today. Now renamed ‘TPJC Symphonic Winds’ and under the guidance of the current resident conductor, Mr. Adrian Chiang, the band is set to excel in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) this year. Last year, the band had actively participated in numerous college events such as the Speech Day, Watercolours Open House and National Day.

The band had also staged two sold-out concerts - one called ‘Le Musique 2008’, a combined concert with the college Guitar Club in April, and the other in conjunction with our ‘Band Festival’ (12th – 18th Dec) during the December Holidays. The concert involved the participation of three other Secondary Schools- Marist Stella High School (MSHS), Saint Anthony Canoissan (SAC) and Chong Boon Secondary (CBSS) and it served as a grand finale to our week long ‘Band Festival’, the first to be organized by the band itself. The festival comprises of master classes by professional musicians and also band clinics conducted by Mr. Surapol Thanyawibool, Music Director form Kasetsart University, Thailand.

To add on, the band was also privileged to be able to go for a five-days-and-four-nights band exchange and performance in Hong Kong (19th -23rd November). Band members were given a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at Hong Kong Disneyland together with Chong Boon Secondary. Hence, TPJCSW is not just your average band; it is a band that will assure a very musical yet enriching experience for many aspiring musicians.
