Hi folks, i happen to know of this event while walking around Singapore Botanic Garden.
Its held at 8-july-07 and 15-july-07, on the sundays.
Venue is at Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage
Time starts from 5pm, ending at 7pm.
A total of 10 secondary school bands are involved. 5 on each sunday. The following sunday, which is the 15-july, schools such as Cresent Girls, Yuhua Secondary, Swiss Cottage Secondary, St Andrew/s Secondary and Ping Yi Secondary will be performing.
As the stage is quite far away from the sitting areas, a focal length of at least 200mm f2.8 is needed as lighting is quite poor if its cloudy. Stage light does not help much.
I think only official approved photograhers are allowed on the stage. Can someone confirm?
Anyway, its quite a interesting performance, not those strictly sitting on the chairs playing with the equipment, some element of suprises always spring up. Its a competition between these 10 secondary schools.
