The KCS Chinese Orchestra has been in existence for more than thirty years and promotes an appreciation for Chinese music. It also helps the members develop a better understanding and respect for the Chinese culture through the mastery of the many instruments in the Orchestra.
The KCS Chinese Orchestra aims to nurture the love of music as performing arts in its members since young. Membership is open to P2-P6 students of all races.
Through regular combined and sectional practice sessions, members are given the opportunity to gain important and beneficial life skills such as perseverance, responsibility and precision.
As members become more competent in playing their respective instruments, they play as one body working together as an Orchestra with group cohesion and team work.
The Orchestra meets every Thursday morning for a combined session, followed by a sectional practice on Friday afternoons. Students are also encouraged to bring their instruments home to practise.
The Orchestra takes part in many school celebrations including Chinese New Year Celebrations, Founder’s Day Concert as well as Prize Giving. Members are given the opportunity to hone their skills through internal and external performances.
