Percussion Performance for the 42nd MSS-Sarawak

Today, on the 5th of April, 5 members from the band (Nadya, Ung, Rohayu, Melissa and Serene) went to Jubilee Ground to officiate the closing ceremony for the 42nd MSS-Sarawak together with the Police Cadet team of our school (to take down the MSSS flag), and a few athletes (as playcard holders) of our school, SMK St. Teresa, Kuching. We were accompanied by Puan Chong Siaw Ning, the band teacher in charge for this event (aka former member of our band),

Our band marched for about 80 meters and played a drum roll for the cadets to bring down the MSSS Flag, to officiate the closing ceremony.

Food Sale and New Instruments! :D

Today, on the 5th of April 2014 (Parent Teacher Day for this Mid Term), we had a food sale to raise funds to buy new instruments/ mouthpieces/ cases. All of us worked together to bring food from home to be sold outside the Music Room. I would like to thank each and everyone who brought/ bought the food today from the bottom of my heart, especially to the parents of our members who prepared most of the food we sold, because without the support from all of you, today’s sale wouldn’t be possible.

After the sale, we announced the members who were going to play the two new Yamaha flutes which we bought a few weeks ago after a short internal audition. The two members are Allyssa Amanda and Claudia Teo, congratulations! 🙂 We all know that they are going to take reallllyy good care of the new instruments of our band.
