The Guzheng Ensemble performed “喜气洋洋” and “迎春花” to usher in the new year. The songs were upbeat and definitely helped to liven the atmosphere. It is the first performance for some of our Secondary 2 students and it was definitely a memorable experience for them. 

March Day Camp

A bonding session was held during the March holiday to provide an opportunity for the new members to get to know their seniors better. The Secondary 3 CCA Leaders planned and conducted the games.

We brought two songs, “城里的月光” and “白牡丹”.  “城里的月光” is a familiar song, was the theme song for the popular Singapore drama Tofu Street. “白牡丹”, white peony in English, is a song adapted from a Taiwanese opera, symbolizing purity and elegance.

Arts Appreciation 1: Shao En and SCO Concert

The concert was held on 7 April 2018 (Saturday), the Guzheng Ensemble came together to attend the first Arts Appreciation programme of 2018. We were really excited to be there as our instructor was going to perform as the Guzheng and Percussion instrumentalist. To our surprise, she was the main instrumentalist for one of the songs, playing solo sections using not just one, but two Guzhengs at the same time. It was truly a delightful evening!
