Chinese Orchestra

Greenridge Secondary School Chinese Orchestra (GSSCO) was established in 2008 with the aim to provide students with the opportunity to learn to play Chinese orchestra instruments and to appreciate a wide variety of music. Over the last 8 years since its inception, the orchestra had developed a repertoire of music ranging from current favourites such as Korean and Western Popular Music as well as traditional Chinese classical music.

CCA PROGRAMME FOR SKILLS, LEADERSHIP & CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Our orchestra performed regularly in school as well as in our bi-annual concert, Spectrum. We also go for exchange programmes as well as holding combined concerts with other schools as well as Institution of Higher Learnings such as Nanyang Polytechnic Chinese Orchestra. GSSCO also took part regularly in the Singapore Youth Festival which it managed to obtain excellent results since our inception.

Besides performances and competitions, members are also exposed to different musical experiences through attending concerts and masterclasses conducted by professional musicians. Our students in the orchestra are coached by professional musicians in the various instruments. To aim for higher standard of performance, our members regularly  take external validation such as grading examinations conducted by the National University of Singapore (NUS) to assess their abilities. Members will be able to continue to pursuit further learning even after they graduate through such platforms.
