CCA Previews ’23: Raffles Symphonic Band

Reading Time: 2 minutes

By Raffles Symphonic Band EXCO ‘23

“Band? Isn’t that a loop of rubber used to hold objects together?”

“That’s ‘rubber band’. A band is a metal ring indicating the wearer is married.”

“No, you’re thinking of ‘wedding band’. A band is the amount of data that can be transferred in a given period of time.”

“No, that’s ‘bandwidth’. I was thinking more along the lines of a Symphonic Band—a spirited group of passionate individuals making music together!”

Welcome to Raffles Symphonic Band (RSB)!

Whether you’re a returning band member or a musician looking to try your hand at something new, RSB is the place for you!

Cosy corner

On Wednesdays and Fridays, RSB members embark on a journey, walking across the Y56 campus into unfamiliar waters in the Y14 campus for our CCA sessions. The hike across the campus may seem arduous, but we’re brought to a homey band room where we chill and bond beyond just practising. Music-wise, we got you covered! From enriching private tutoring sessions with acclaimed tutors, to fruitful combined practices with our resident conductor Mr Lim Yean Hwee, you’ll be ready for the battles ahead!

A Tempo 2022!

We’re a busy CCA, holding 2 annual concerts: A Tempo, our grand mid-year concert held at the Victoria Concert Hall, and Bandemonium, our year-end concert where we invite alumni and Secondary 4 students to join us in performing. Our band also participates in the biennial SYF Arts Presentation, and exchanges with bands overseas. Last but not least, we hold Tune-In, a day of fun and interaction for Secondary 4 students all over Singapore to reunite with their instruments! 

Do check out our video for a more up-close and personal sneak peek into the RSB experience – we would love for it to be yours too! See you soon, a wide range of exciting experiences awaits you!
