Raffles Institution

Chinese Orchestra (Year 5-6)

  • taken by Michael Chow for Deck the Walls 2018, a project by the Raffles Photographic Society (Year 5-6)

    The RI (Year 5-6) Chinese Orchestra was founded in 1982.

    While Chinese pieces naturally form the basis of our repertoire, we play songs like 小幸运 (xiao xing yun), pop music by the likes of Ed Sheeran and Coldplay, and evergreen classics by Teresa Teng under the music direction of our charismatic conductor, Mr Yang Jiwei.

    The word 乐 has two meanings: music, and happiness. In RJCO, we experience both meanings fully, so join us if you want to embark on a musical journey of a lifetime.
