Symphonic Band

The Cedar Girls’ Secondary School Band was previously a military band that clinched the Best Display Band Award in 1996. In 1997, it became a symphonic band.

The Cedar Symphonic Band (CSB) has been enriched through cross cultural exchanges with musicians from various countries, as well as local artistes who conduct workshops and master classes. With regular exposure to various styles and performance settings, the students are encouraged to reach their fullest potential by developing showmanship, solo and ensemble skills. Our annual concerts and other performances provide many opportunities to showcase these skills.

CSB has been actively participating in many school activities, exchange programmes and music courses in Australia, Japan and most recently, in Hong Kong.

Under the baton of Ms Sia Swee Suan and Mr Ong Tee Hoe, CSB not only strives to achieve higher standards of musical expertise but also to inculcate important values in its members, such as teamwork, discipline and commitment, thus staying true to our motto: ‘Ordinary people, Extraordinary music’. Every CSB member strives to be a leader of character with a lifelong appreciation for music.
