String Ensemble

String Ensemble


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

Led by music director Mr Lin Juan, RISE has presented several exciting concerts over the years featuring an array of repertoire. They have also joined efforts with the RI Chinese Orchestra, Raffles Players, RI Military Band and The Philharmonic Orchestra (Singapore) offering interesting and varied experiences for the RISE members.

The String Ensemble is also fortunate to have the guidance and mentorship of top musicians which provide a solid training ground for our young musicians.

In all, RISE aims to bring about growth in our young musicians through fun music-making and character development.
