Raffles Institution

Raffles Institution Military Band

    The Raffles Institution Military Band (RIMB) was official founded in 1964, and is one of the oldest bands in Singapore. RIMB has won many awards in both outdoor and indoor awards. RIMB has attained a Distinction award in the 2015 Singapore Youth Festival Central Judging and most recently a Gold award in the Singapore International Band Festival. Though RIMB has a history of being a marching band, RIMB has become a concert band since 1992, while keeping our name to remember and appreciate our past and heritage. Under the baton of our resident conductor Mr Lim Yean Hwee, we hope to be able to bring the band to greater heights.
