A Workshop with Dr. Matthew Arau

Hi there! We had a workshop with Dr Matthew Arau all the way from America on the 10th of February 2018.Dr. Matthew Arau is an Assistant Professor of Music, Chair of the Music Education Department and Associate Director of Bands at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music. It was truly a privilege to be able to have a workshop with him! We worked on the song "A Boy's Dream" by Jay Bocook and have acquired extra knowledge and a deeper understanding of the song. We really enjoyed ourselves and it was indeed a fruitful day for us! This day was undoubtedly a great one!

Orientation Day and Gerko Day 2018

A new year arises and so does a new batch of students in CHS. We had our orientation day on the 29th of December 2017 and performed the song "The Incredibles". On the other hand, we performed on Gerko Day that was held on the 12th of January 2018 for the new Form Ones with the song "小手拉大手” in the school hall. As the curtain rolled up, we started our performance and we were conducted by our Assistant Music Master, Ong Zhi Ching. We had a great time performing and we hope that the form ones enjoyed it as much as we did.

Farewell 2017

We are back again for this year's farewell! The event was held on the 2nd of December 2017 in the bandroom and was themed "Two World's", where the form 5s were taken on a journey to discover that we are all still a big family, connected to each other even though they are about to embark on a different chapter in life. As we have a saying that goes :"the friends we believe, the love we trust, the hope we live, two worlds never apart".

There were also entertaining programmes like drama presentations from various forms, a slideshow presentation that took them down memory lane and not forgetting an inspiring talk session filled with laughter and tears from the form 5s. We are ever grateful for having them in our band lives and hope the best for them. See you next time!

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.
