OUR GUEST BAND
Jurongville Secondary School
Conductor: Mr Simon Foo
Assistant: Mr Lee Wen Xiang
Established since the birth of Jurongville Secondary School in 1987, Jurongville Concert Band has earned the reputation of being a proven band which has consistently achieved excellent results at the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Central Judging for Bands. Brimming with affection for the instruments fused with the abidance of discipline and respect, we were awarded the Certificate of Distinction at the 2015 SYF.
The recognition that the band has received is a result of two guiding principles we stand by. The first is that everyone should have equal opportunity to learn music. Secondly, to aim for excellence in our musical journey. We believe that as long as you are willing, you can make music. Together, we strive to discover the unique strengths of each member and maximise their musical potential. The band is currently under the baton of Mr Simon Foo and Mr Lee Wen Xiang.
