Between 27 November to 1 December 2012, 36 of our GESPians participated in the 2012 Winter Band Festival held in Hong Kong.
The Winter Band Festival is designed to provide an educational and positive music learning experience for school bands from primary to college level. This is aimed at enhance school’s ensemble’s learning curve through workshop, performance and adjudication at one of the world’s famous park, Hong Kong Disneyland.
Through the concert presentation, adjudicator’s workshop, school exchange with Riverain Primary School (HK), sight-seeing in Hong Kong, Performance Arts Programme in Disneyland Hong Kong (where our Brass Band played for an international crowd at the Park) and the Gala Dinner (where our GESPians had the chance to be up-close-and-personal with Mickey & Minnie Mouse) scheduled over the 5-day-4-night festival programme, ourGESPians’ brass band members were elevated to a newfound level of artistic creation-and-appreciation.
Our Brass Band received a Gold Award and was also presented with one group Disneyland Performance plaque, one group photograph and personalized certificates for all GESPians’participants. This is truly an once-in-a-lifetime, meaningful and rich learning experience for all GESPians’ Brass Band members.
