String Ensemble


RI String Ensemble immerses students in a fun, inspiring and challenging programme that hones their talents on the violin, viola, cello and double bass through weekly small-group sectionals and larger orchestra experiences. Members are also encouraged to dig deep into chamber and string orchestra music.

Led by music director Mr Lin Juan, RISE has presented several exciting concerts that feature a wide repertoire. RISE members have also performed with the RI Chinese Orchestra, Raffles Players, RI Military Band and The Philharmonic Orchestra (Singapore).

RISE is fortunate to have the guidance and mentorship of top musicians, who provide our members with a solid training ground. In all, RISE aims to bring about growth and character developement in our members through fun music-making.
