The 29th SEA Games 2017

Today is D-DAY! We have all been counting down to this day and it has been an incredible journey. Catholic High School Band performed in the pre-event show for the opening ceremony of the 29th  South East Asian Games on the 19th of August 2017 along with 6 other school bands.

When the long-awaited moment arose, both excitement and anxiousness were tangible in the air. The band strode out and did their very best to perform a formation performance with the song "Perro Caliente" for the big audience at the breathtaking Stadium Bukit Jalil. It was truly a moment to capture.

After countless practices and rehearsals through rain or shine, the performance was one that will not be erased by time and we're glad to share it with you.

Sports Day 2017

A dewy Friday morning, exhilarating atmosphere, we are back again with the annual sports day of catholic High School!

Sports day was held on the 21st of July 2017 ad Catholic High School Band had a parade performance. The band marched in uniformly, following our newly elected drum major, Ethan Ting Sheng, while the strong and vibrant tunes of "Perro Caliente" and "Mambo" were being played. Excitement and cheer enveloped the entire field, overpowering the calm early morning.

The members put an immense amount of effort to prepare for this and it has definitely paid off as it i a joy to share this atmosphere through music to others.

This was a magnificent day filled with laughter, sweat and tears for all the students of CHS.

Once again, we whole-heartedly welcomed Carine Senior High School Band from Perth, Australia for an interaction programme on the 5th of July 2017. Our band had an exchange with them 4 years ago, in 2013. We were happy and grateful to meet again!

Music Camp 2017

And we're back with our annual music camp!
This year, the music camp was held on 29th of May to 1st of June at our own school. It was yet another memorable camp as our 4-day schedule was filled with fruitful concert practices conducted by Mr Lim Yean Hwee who was also our tutor for last year's music camp, instrumental and sectional tutorials by professional tutors, and also fun games and activities. It was a very good opportunity for us to not only gain important musical knowledge, but to strengthen the bond between the band members as well.
Last but not least, well done to the Organizing Committee for their hard work in conducting this year's music camp. 
Stay with us for our upcoming events!

Gerko Day 2017

Greetings to all!

It was yet another busy and eventful day for us CHS-ians. This year's Gerko Day was held on the of 13th of January, two weeks right after the Form Ones started their secondary school life in Catholic High School.

Similar to the past years, every uniform body, club and society had set up their respective booths in the school hall area to promote themselves to the Form Ones and to recruit new members. For this year's Gerko Day performance, we presented two songs to the audience - "Metalfare" and "J-Pop Stage Vol. 3".

We would like to welcome the new members to our band and let us work together to achieve greater goals!




Another busy day for CHS-ians.

Orientation Day 2016

Time flies, and it is the beginning of a new year again!

And of course, a new year means the arrival of a new batch of students to our school. This year's orientation day was on the 30th of December, and we performed "Welcome", a song that matched the purpose of the event perfectly - a warm welcome from us to the new students.

We also had a surprise for the audience. Our soloist performed right in the middle of the crowd, bringing the show closer to everyone who watched our performance that day.

Last but not least, dear new comers, welcome to Catholic High School and we hope you will enjoy your stay here. Cheers!



Going on stage in just a minute!

Thomas Jack Concert- Fantasy!

Have you ever been to a live concert before? Well, we definitely have! On the 20th of August, we were invited to perform at Thomas Jack's concert- Fantasy, which was held in Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur.

It was Thomas Jack's first concert ever since their debut seven years ago. We performed along with them during the last song- “Xiang”, which was also the finale. Other than that, we also have the chance to witness their concert, where they performed each and every song with all their hearts, earning tremendous cheers from the audience. It was amazing how Thomas Jack perfected every song and dance to give the best performance to the audience.


The concert was a real success and we enjoyed every second of it. It was a new experience for us to perform at a live concert and we will continue to cherish every chance we have to perform in the future.

And... the grand finale! Thank you for such a fantastic concert!
