    The Raffles Institution (Year 5-6) Guitar Ensemble has, over the years, grown to be one of the best fully-fledged Niibori guitar ensembles in Singapore at the JC level under the baton of Mr. Michael Gaspar.

    2016 was an exciting year for RJGE as we took part in several exciting performances and competitions, including the prestigious 10th Guitar Ensemble Festival 2016 and held our very own biennial concert, Afinado.

    If you are a guitar enthusiast, or someone who enjoys creating music, or has absolutely no musical background but is interested in learning the guitar, this CCA for you! All Year 5 students are most welcome to join this family so long as you are dedicated and committed. No guitar background is required as those without prior knowledge would be able to learn from Mr Gaspar himself.
