Concert Band

With a strength of over 70 musicians, PL Concert Band first started in 1978. Being one of the earliest music groups established in school, PL Concert Band first started as a military brass band and was previously combined with the primary school. The PL Concert Band has had many opportunities over the years to perform both locally and internationally.

PL Concert Band has been blessed with good conductors from the beginning. In 1997, Mr Tan Beng Wee joined PL Concert Band and equipped the main band with musical techniques and skills. In 2004, Ms Ten Rong Rong was in charge of the Training Band, providing the students with a foundation of music.

PL Concert Band has also attained quite a number of awards. The band received the Silver Award in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Central Judging for the years 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. In 2015 and 2017, the PL Concert Band attained a Certificate of Accomplishment in the SYF Arts Presentation.
