Exchange with Foreign Bands : Serangoon Symphonic Band cultivates and builds quality relationships with other bands. There was a fun-filled and enriching band exchange with South Fremantle Band of Australia in 2011 and the Hong Kong Youth Wind Orchestra (HKYWO) in 2012.
The band prides itself with every opportunity to contribute and perform for and on behalf of the school. Having taken part in Music and Arts Festival, “Bands by the Bay”, as well as forming a band contingent for National Day, members of Serangoon Symphonic Band continue to ignite passion in all their endeavours.
Above all, the band has also actively reached out to the community in performing for old folks, thereby bringing music and cheer to the residents of an old folk’s home.
The experience of the Serangoon Symphonic Band lives on in the hearts of its members.
