About us

BBSS Chinese Orchestra seeks to promote greater appreciation of Chinese Orchestral music and culture and to nurture and groom young musical talents. Student musicians are given many opportunities to develop themselves musically through participation in instrumental master classes conducted by our instructors. Joining the Chinese Orchestra has enabled many of our students to develop the skill of being able to play a Chinese instrument. The commitment, perseverance and the need to work together as a team to improve one's skill also enhances the maturity of our members, thus building their confidence and self-esteem. Through this learning journey, students pick up valuable leadership skills and cultivate a habit of continual practice and independent learning.


The Chinese Orchestra has taken part in a number of competitions to hone their skills. They received the SYF Arts Presentation Distinction Award in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 21st Century International Arts Festival Gold Award in 2013. It is also one of the most active performing arts groups in our school, performing for the annual Chinese New Year Celebrations and biannual combined PAG concert, Metamorphosis. In July 2016, our students performed with the Keat Hong Chinese Orchestra in ‘Memoirs of Heroes’ concert at the SOTA Concert Hall. Furthermore, our students have also performed in notable outdoor venues like Gardens by the Bay for the Chinese New Year Celebration (Spring Melodies 2018) as well as at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre for the SYF Celebrations 2018. Other than indoor and outdoor performances, they also engage in creative expression of music as they challenge themselves to present popular music using traditional instruments in school.
