Symphonic Band

Band.JPG
Xinmin Symphonic Band began more than twenty-five years ago, as a brass band of merely 20 members. Today, the band has grown in strength to more than 100 members in the full symphonic band. 

Despite the short duration of time available to train the young enthusiasts who mostly have little or no prior exposure to band music, Xinmin Symphonic Band has always been passionate and sincere in educating and training its young musicians. Through hard work and dedication, the members continuously strive to achieve the high standards set by their predecessors by clinching prestigious awards, particularly at every Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation – Gold Award in 2007, 2009 (with honours) and 2011, and then the Distinction Awards in 2013, 2015 and 2017. 

Xinmin Symphonic Band performs a diverse range of musical pieces from simple ensemble pieces to highly acclaimed and technically demanding band works transcribed from famous musicals, operas and orchestral work in our annual concert - Xinfony. In 2009 and 2012, Xinmin Symphonic Band did the school proud with its public performances at the Esplanade Concert Hall where it performed in the highly acclaimed Limelight series to a full hall. The Band was also honoured to be invited to perform at the Istana’s Labour Day Open House in 2016. 

Under the musical direction of our band maestro, Mr Daniel Kiang, and the relentless guidance from nurturing and caring band teachers, the Band has grown from strength to strength, and will continue to soar to greater artistic heights to captivate our audiences with our vibrant performances.
