Our Motto: "Dedication Leads to Excellence"



Background

“Without music, life is a journey through a desert (a quote by Pat Conroy).”   This statement aptly sums up the purpose and passion of the Yuhua Concert Band.   Since its inception in 1987, the Band has sought to instill love and appreciation for music in its members.

Under the tutelage and mentoring of our band instructor, Ms Chan Peck Suan, the Yuhua Concert Band has not only produced many skilled musicians who are still active as players in the band scene or have gone on to become professional musicians, the band has also establised a name for itself by achieving many outstanding awards. 

In 2007 - 2008, Yuhua Concert Band was selected to develop its niche area in Concert Band. Being a niche school, it allows the school to admit up to 5% of the Secondary One Cohort.

Apart from our strict discipline enforced at our band practices, we also give opportunities to our members to participate in enriching programmes such as overseas trips which broaden their experiences and build up their confidence. Our members also had the experience to perform and exchange ideas and skills with talented musicians from overseas.

Combined concert with Kumamoto Prefecture selected band

The Kumamoto Prefecture Selected band consists of high school musicians from the island of Kyshu, Japan and they are selected through an audition process held earlier this year. Mr. Hayakawa Eiichi, advisor to the Kumamoto Prefecture Selected band, shared his hope that the Kumamoto students can learn more about the music and multi-cultures of Southeast Asis through this music performance tour. As part of this tour, Yuhua Concert Band was invited to perform with the Kumamoto Prefecture Selected Band at the Victoria Concert Hall on 6th Aug 2015.
