Making an appearance at the Community Chest Awards 2018, held on 9 October at the Istana, was our Canossian Percussion Band. Conducted by Mr Richard Ter, the band performed three rousing pieces, “Clave & Sons”, Mission Impossible”, and “A Swingin’ Bossa”, which received warm applause from the guests. Two of the band members, Vivian Boo and alumnus Avlynn Ng, also spoke about their experiences in the band.
It was indeed an honour for the band members to perform at the venue; for some, it was their first visit to the Istana. The occasion also marked the first time the band performed in public kitted out in the new band uniform.
