Strings @ SHPS

      Strings@SHPS was formed in 2005 with the aim of gathering students with a passion in playing the various string instruments such as the violin, cello and double bass to put their musical talents together. Through the Strings (Violin) and Strings (Cello) programmes, students will be equipped with the necessary fundamental skills and techniques in these instruments so that they would eventually be part of the school’s String Ensemble.
    
    The String Ensemble aims to nurture students’ interests and passion in playing together by offering training as well as various performing platforms and opportunities for them.  In the course of the CCA, students will be nurtured to develop perseverance, responsibility and teamwork, on top of concert etiquette and disciplines of musicianship.

     Led by their resident conductor, Mr Andrew Ng, the String Ensemble is proud to have performed in many important events within and outside school. They have also participated actively in the biennial Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation and have achieved a certificate of Distinction in the recent SYF 2018.
