    RI Military Band and Raffles Symphonic Band hosted the Meiji University Senior and Junior High School Wind Orchestras on their exchange trip to Singapore from 24 to 26 March. The bands performed well-rehearsed pieces for each other, before participating in a section interaction and gift exchange session.

    On the last day, Meiji High Wind Orchestra put up a full-house concert at School of the Arts Concert Hall, with RIMB and RSB as guest performers. Some students from RIMB and RSB also joined Meiji High Wind Orchestra in the finale, a spirited rendition of El Cumbanchero. The concert was very well-received and the students, teachers, and conductors from all three bands agree that it was an enriching experience for all. We look forward to collaborating with Meiji High Wind Orchestra and other Japanese bands in the future.
