RI Military Band

2020 RI Military Band



RIMB (Raffles Institution Military Band) was officially founded in 1964, and is one of the oldest school bands in Singapore. We were originally a marching band, but converted to a concert band in 1992. We retained our name in honour of our heritage.

Our achievements include 16 consecutive Golds at the national SYF (Singapore Youth Festival) Central Judging. We achieved Distinction at the 2015 and 2017 SYF Arts Presentation under the baton of our conductor Mr Lim Yean Hwee.

We are actively involved in exchanges with local and overseas schools. In 2016, RIMB travelled to Tokyo on a five-day exchange trip with two Japanese high school bands. In 2017, we hosted the prestigious Meiji High School Concert Band for three days and performed with them in a combined concert. 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.
