Brief description of Chinese Orchestra

The curriculum for Kong Hwa Chinese Orchestra (CO) aims to develop the members holistically.  

Our members receive musical training on their respective instruments from highly qualified instructors. Our CO conductor is Mr Liu Bin. Presently, our CO has the strength of about 60 members. 

Kong Hwa School is the only Primary school in Singapore that has attained 3 consecutive Gold with Honours award in Singapore Youth Festival competitions. We will be participating in the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation (SYF) in 2018 and we are looking forward to a fruitful year. We hope to once again achieve outstanding performance in this year's SYF. 

Through the years, we have been providing stimulating musical experiences and opportunities for our members. Besides learning to apply their musical skills to music-making for school and public performances, members also learn life skills such as team work, perseverance and commitment. As part of our efforts to build strong foundation in the various Chinese instruments for members in CO, the school recruited Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils into it as their CCA in 2017. The recruitment program strives to provide long term musical experiences for all the pupils in the lower primary.

It seeks to build continuity and commitment in their learning journey as a musician. Pupils need not pay for the training. Once they are selected, they are strongly encouraged to take up CO as a CCA in P3 and continue their learning experience till Primary 6. This is to encourage the development of skills over a period of at least 4 -5 years, as 1 or 2 years are insufficient for students to fully actualise their potential.
