Posted on January 5, 2019

Date: 28 December 2018

Time: 8:00 p.m. – 10.00 p.m.

Venue: Stage 2, PenangPAC, Straits Quay

On 28th December, 2018, the harmonica band has held a concert titled ‘Opposites’ with the theme of Eastern’s and Western’s song . This concert was a combined concert with schools Chung Ling High School, Sam Tet High School (Ipoh), Chung Ling Butterworth High School and Yu Hua High School (KL) participating. We also invited guest star Leon Yuen.We polished our pieces thoroughly extremely cautiously, making sure everyone does their part and no slacking off will take place. As a conclusion, the concert was indeed successful and exposed more Penangnites to the beauty of the harmonica. Thanks to this concert, our members have greatly improved as the pressure worked as a motivation to strive for success. We hope to be able to organise another concert similar to this and hope to continue this as a tradition.

Harmonica Practical Exam 2018

Posted on June 18, 2018

Date: 9 June 2018 (Saturday)
Time: 10am – 12pm
Venue: Class C16 PCGHS

Last Saturday, the Penang Chinese Girls’ High School Harmonica Band has conducted a practical exam to examine three main components of the members’ performances: style, musicality, and piece difficulty. This exam is to be held annually for beginner members to monitor their learning progress and to observe their strong and weak points, so that the conductor could arrange members in the most suitable sections for the best orchestral effect. All members performed excellently and some even achieved a mature and coloured tone. We hope to see such a positive response again next year.

 

Some members arrive early to get pre-performance advice from the conductor.
