After attaining the Certificate of Distinction in this year’s SYF Arts Presentation, Catholic High School Symphony Band (CHSSB) is proud to present Inverno Paradiso, the inaugural concert in the series of Paradiso concerts regaling the audience with a light-hearted repertoire. Under the baton of our resident conductor, Mr Adrian Chiang, CHSSB will be playing a collection of popular band pieces, some of which are Christmas tunes. Highlights of the concert include:

1) Chorale and Shaker Dance by John Zdechlik
2) Irish Tune from County Derry by Percy Grainger
3) A Christmas Festival by Leroy Anderson
4) Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson

The concert also features our percussion, saxophone, woodwind and brass ensembles! Of special mention is the guest performance of the Edward Becheras Choir in Irish Tune from County Derry and A Christmas Festival.

The Edward Becheras Choir (EBC) is a prestigious, multi-award-winning, all-male SATB choir under the guidance and instruction of locally-renowned and internationally-acclaimed choral director and conductor, Professor Nelson Kwei. It is widely regarded as a powerhouse choir in the local choral community and is acknowledged as one of the top secondary school choirs in Singapore. Hailing from humble origins almost half a century ago, the choir has evolved into a distinguished choir, known for constantly producing quality standards of music.

Do join us for a magical evening in winter paradise! Tickets can be bought from any band members. For bulk purchases of tickets, kindly contact Mr Sean Koh, teacher-in-charge of CHSSB, at 64582177.
