Since its inception in 1968, the NUS Wind Symphony has established itself as one of the premier wind orchestras in Singapore. Boasting an illustrious history of 47 years, the wind orchestra counts itself as a pioneering band in Singapore and comprises non-music majors from different faculties united through the years by a passion for band music.
Led by Associate Professor Ho Hwee Long, the Wind Symphony will present the panorama of Singapore history from Dr Zechariah Goh’s Sang Nila for Wind Ensemble with Choir to Three Portraits for Symphonic Band by Dr Kelly Tang and a modern arrangement of the folksong Munnaeru Vaalibaa, music which evoke memories of how Singapore has evolved from an idyllic fishing village to the busy rush of a modern metropolis. Other highlights include Taruya’s Liberty Guiding the People and climaxing at Hazo’s Exultaté.
