Established in 2001, the Chinese Orchestra (previously known as Cultural Group) is one of the largest CCAs in Merdian Secondary School with the current strength of 80 members. We are a dynamic group that focuses on developing our musical skills and creating a strong sense of community among our members.
Merdian Secondary School Chinese Orchestra is committed to creating leaders with self-leadership and social awareness skills. As one of the premier school Chinese Orchestras in Singapore, we seek to develop our students into competent and credible musicians.
We have been able to showcase our skills through various avenues, such as charity performances at community centres, visits to old folks’ homes and school concerts. Our students are selected to attend a musical training course by MOE annually, where they will learn to conduct an orchestra as well as hone their leadership skills through various activities. Also, we hope to incorporate our musical talents into our service towards the community through collaborations with various organisations.
