RI Military Band

2020 RI Military Band

 

 

Raffles Institution Military Band (RIMB) is officially founded in 1964, and is one of the oldest school bands in Singapore. We are originally a marching band, but converted to a concert band in 1992, while keeping the name to remember our heritage. Under the baton of our conductor Mr Lim Yean Hwee, we achieved Distinction at the 2015, 2017, and 2019 SYF Arts Presentation. We are actively involved in exchanges with local and overseas schools. In 2018, RIMB travelled to Osaka on a five-day exchange trip with two Japanese high school bands. In 2018, we also hosted an exchange with an Australian band from Oxford Falls Grammar School. In 2019, RIMB hosted an exchange with 10 other secondary school bands to perform our SYF set and choice pieces. RIMB is also open to collaboration with other performing arts groups. In 2017, we put up a joint concert together with RI Chinese Orchestra titled ‘Confluence’ at Victoria Concert Hall.

 



RIMB started a media project during the COVID period this year, titled ‘Embark’. It aims to showcase and celebrate the musical talents of our band students online. The first video in the series is a performance by Chan Haowei, Year 2, on Trumpet.
