Guitar Ensemble


2020 Guitar Ensemble



The Raffles Institution Guitar Ensemble was formed in 1990. A full-fledged Niibori guitar ensemble, we employ guitars of varying sizes and pitches in order to achieve an orchestra effect. Boasting a wide repertoire ranging from classical pieces to Japanese works, we strive to instil in our ~50 members the passion for music and the guitar. 

We encourage interaction between members so as to foster close bonds with one another, by conducting games on activity days. In addition to well-received annual public concerts, as well as various in-school performances, we also encourage our members to be socially responsible and contribute to the community outside of school. Members volunteered their time last October to teach basic guitar skills to children of ages 9-12 in Harvest Care Centre. Other members collaborated with Metta School Guitar Ensemble last November to participate in a public concert, Metta Shine Night.
