RI Chinese Orchestra

2020 RICO

 

 

Raffles Institution Chinese Orchestra (RICO) was founded in 1987 by then-Headmaster Mr Eugene Wijeysingha, Since then, we have grown into an internationally competitive orchestra with 120 members in 5 sections. 

RICO is made up of 5 sections: Huqin (胡琴), Tanbo (弹拨), Chuiguan (吹管), Percussion (打击乐), and Cellobass (低音弦).

As a modern and progressive Orchestra, we incorporate the best of both Chinese and Western music in our performances, playing contemporary Chinese pieces, and renditions of modern pop, along with traditional orchestral pieces.

RICO envisions itself becoming an accomplished, world-class orchestra. We values camaraderie, musical talent and hard work among members, and seek to give every member a stake in the orchestra and foster a conducive environment for self-discovery through immersion in the dynamic landscape of Chinese music.
