Raffles Rhapsody 2012, in Mrs Lim Lai Cheng’s words, was a ‘passionate and enthusiastic expression of feelings and emotions’. Its goal was to showcase the talented performing arts CCAs in RI, and achieve that goal it did. Initial reactions towards the event were mixed (grouses ranged from expensive ticket prices to the short performance times for all CCAs involved), but as it neared 20 April, there was no doubt that Rhapsody looked set to be an event of great proportions. Combining efforts from all the performing arts CCAs in RI and the 31st Students’ Council and held in NUS’ University Cultural Centre, it was clear Raffles Rhapsody was not just another school concert.
