Festival Winds Honour Band Concert 2019
The highly anticipated band event of the year “Festival Winds”, organized by the Band Directors’ Association (Singapore) and co-produced by the Licha Stelaus Productions, is back for its second year running!
Festival Winds is a premier musical experience for students (Secondary School and above) throughout Singapore to come together and perform with one another. Festival Winds remains as an encouraging and inclusive platform for like-minded individuals to come together to share musical ideas, make friends and promote musical growth. At Festival Winds, students will participate in masterclasses with an esteemed professional faculty and rehearse as an ensemble for 4 days. At the end of the Festival, students will put up a full-length concert to demonstrate their growth and development. Do look forward to catch your favourite Band Directors in action as the BDA(S) takes stage for the Festival Winds Honour Band Concert.
