Chinese New Year (CNY) is a traditional festival celebrated yearly by the Chinese all over the world. It is significant as it is a precious time for families to bond.
Limelight @ Esplanade
Celebrating its 50th anniversary since its founding in 1967, the Crescent Girls’ School Symphonic Band (CGSSB), led by its founding conductor Mr Lee Seck Chiang, held their 7th Limelight concert at the prestigious Esplanade Concert Hall. After months of hard work and determination, CGSSB dazzled the audience with their rendition of The Star Wars Marches and Xiao Xing Yun. Unlike previous years, this year’s Limelight provided a chance for the CGSSB Alumni to come together for a precious reunion and put together pieces such as The Phantom of the Opera and Instant Concert. The night ended on a high note with Subaru, a piece that holds a special place in the hearts of many alumni. Under the baton of Mdm Tan Soh Hwa, Mr Chua Tiong Hong, and Mr Lee Seck Chiang, the band had a memorable 50th anniversary celebration. CGSSB would like to extend our thanks to our conductors, and teachers-in-charge - Mdm Norzaidah Suparman, Ms Nur Rafiqqa Bte Mustapha, and Mr Sambandam Mohan. Our gratitude also goes out to Ms Goh Peishi and Ms Low Geok Pin, the Head of Department for Creative Arts. They were there with us throughout the journey and it would not have been smooth-sailing without their contributions and hard work. In addition, we would also like to sincerely thank our principal, Mrs Helen Chong, and vice principals, Ms Chuang Siew Chin, Ms Priya Rayan, and Ms Cindy Low, for their continuous support, as well as to all teachers and friends who came down to watch our performance. CGSSB will continue to strive to do our best and bring glory to Crescent.
