Festival Winds 2019

The highly anticipated band event of the year “Festival Winds” organised by the Band Directors’ Association (Singapore) came back for its second year! Festival Winds is a premier musical experience for students (Secondary School and above) throughout Singapore to come together and perform with one another. At Festival Winds, students participated in masterclasses with an esteemed professional faculty and rehearse as an ensemble for 4 days. At the end of the Festival, students performed a full length concert to demonstrate their growth and development.

Festival Winds 2019 welcomed new sponsors Chenter Foundation, Licha Stelaus Productions and new venue partner Nanyang Polytechnic alongside their returning sponsor The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). Attendees could also look forward to catching their favourite Band Directors in action as the Band Directors’ Association Band took the stage for the Festival Winds Honour Band Concert. Festival Winds Honour Band Concert was conducted by BDA(S)’s esteemed advisor, Dr Leonard Tan from the National Institute of Education and Director of Music of the Singapore Armed Forces Central Band ME5 Tan Aik Kee Ken Steven.

The 4-day event, targeted at students aged 13 years old and above, was helmed by some of the top local professional directors with the following objectives:
– To provide a platform for band members from different schools to interact in a learning and performance environment
– To introduce ensemble playing and full band training to participants
– To create opportunities to foster camaraderie and teamwork
– To equip student leaders to be role models in discipline and skills to lead and assist other band members in music matters

Students were separated into 3 groups, based on their number of years of experience, and put through a series of intense ensemble and combined band training.

德拉肯斯堡男童合唱學校是南非為數不多、享譽全球的聲樂學校之一,這所學校為兒童提供獨特的教育環境,學校課程提供了均衡的發展,鼓勵男孩成為男孩,享受自然,保持活躍。學校周圍著名的世界遺產自然景觀龍山山脈激發了男孩們的探險精神,教會的教育傳統同時培養了男孩們音樂天賦中的思想和表達能力。

合唱學校的原址為Tungay家族的農場,擔任當地三一教堂合唱指揮的學校創辦人John Tungay於1967年將農場改造為合唱學校,第一年有60位男童註冊入學,現在在學人數約為120名,年齡在9至15歲之間。學校在1995年建有600個座位的禮堂,每週三舉行音樂會。每週三的音樂會及定期舉辦的「山中之聲」音樂節與各地的藝術家合作,已被南非政府認可為該國重要的文化活動,並為合唱團培養了來自全球的忠實聽眾。學校的願景是建立一個多種族,多文化的合唱學校,經常被稱為「南非歌唱大使」,今(2019)年將首次在南非國家藝術節演出。

五十多年過去,德拉肯斯堡男童合唱團如今已經常在國際巡迴演出,近期於2018年參加兩年一度的世界合唱大賽,在Scenic Pop/Show Choir組獲得金牌,其活潑動感兼俱優美音色的演出在社群媒體中廣為流傳。最近的巡迴演出包括美國,韓國,荷蘭,德國,奧地利,日本和瑞士,並計劃於2019年9月前往英國。
