Symphonic Band

Since its humble beginnings in 1987, the Nanyang Junior College Symphonic Band (NYJCSB) has grown in strength to become the strong ensemble it is today. Under the baton of our Band Director, Mr. Brando Tan, the band has achieved the following awards:

Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Central Judging of Concert Bands: Gold in 2007, 2009; Silver in 2011

SYF Arts Presentation (Band): Certificate of Distinction in 2013 and 2015

The band believes in bringing out the musicality in every member and has taken part in several concerts, public performances both locally and internationally. The band was part of the Esplanade’s Limelight series in 2011.

The band holds a biennial concert, Aureus Experentia, with the aim of allowing the band members to showcase their talent to their families and friends.

In addition, the band goes on an overseas music exchange trip every year. Countries which the band has visited include Taiwan and Malaysia. During the trips, the band members received first-hand experiences of different cultures and gained a better insight of music styles from around the world.

Together with our Band Director and teachers-in-charge, the Nanyang Junior College Symphonic Band will continue striving for excellence in music.
