Established in 1998, the String Ensemble has grown steadily, from a very modest 10-member team to the current 40-strong ensemble.
The ensemble has participated regularly in the biennial Singapore Youth Festival, clinching gold and silver awards. In the past three Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Festivals in 2013, 2015, and 2017, the string ensemble was awarded the highest accolade, the Certificate of Distinction.
Dedicated to providing our young musicians with musical, social and intellectual growth, the string ensemble has nurtured many music enthusiasts and young talents and will continue to do so for years to come. The string ensemble has also made numerous performances both in school and at public venues. Most recently, the string ensemble held its biennial concert at the Victoria Concert Hall, Da Capo, guest-featuring the TKGS Choir, and at the Fullerton Hotel for the school’s 65th anniversary gala dinner, where President Halimah Yacob was the guest-of-honour.
