Formed in 1969, the same year National Junior College was established, NJCSB has been integral to the culture and rich heritage of our College.
The Band first functioned as a brass band under the tutelage of its conductor, Associate Professor Ho Hwee Long, and has since won accolades both within and beyond Singapore. In year 2009, with the advent of the Integrated Programme, the band has welcomed a new group of members, forming the Junior High wing of its establishment. The Junior High band, currently under the baton of Mr Seow Yibin has also made commendable achievements in their early years of establishment. The Band has been an integral part of college life, performing at morning assemblies and for various college functions. It has also participated in many local and overseas programmes to achieve higher standards of musicality. Each year, the Band performs at “Etude”, its series of concerts which showcases yearly the talent, energy and passion for music of young musicians at NJCSB. The band’s motto, “Triumph in Harmony”, encompasses more than its commitment to performance standards – it aptly captures the band’s aims to develop team spirit in servant leaders who inspire with honour.
Symphonic Band members have sound moral values & deep sense of responsibility to the Symphonic Band & College.

The members are prepared to lead, in musicality with sensitivity and serve the band with honour.
