Zhuhai No. 1 Middle School Wind Band

Zhuhai No. 1 Middle School Wind Band

 

Zhuhai No. 1 Middle School Wind Band was established in February 1995, with the history of more than 15 years, it is the first big Wind Band in Zhuhai. Nowadays there are more than 60 members.

At the very beginning of the establishment, the band was lead and taught by the teachers from Central Conservatory of Music and The Military Band of People's Liberation Army of China. Mr. Cheng Yiming, one of the teachers from The Military Band of People's Liberation Army of China, shouldered responsibility at the beginning days and under his leadership, Zhuhai No. 1 Middle School Wind Band went into a new stage.

It is the overall ability of the students that the band paid much attention to. They went to many places to take part in the music communication activities, such as Singapore, Taiwan, Beijing, Macau, Hong Kong, Xi’an, etc. The activities greatly temper the band, and gradually, it became mature.

In the year 1998, the band won the first prize in National Arts Competition for Pupils and Middle School students. In the year 2002, the band went to Guangzhou to take part in the Asian-Pacific Wind Music Festival. In May 2010, the band took part in the 4th Amateur Wind Band Performing Competition held in Shanghai and they won the Bronze Prize. At the same year, just 6 months later, they were chosen to take part in the Opening Ceremony of Guangzhou Asian Games. The band won a lot of popularity from the audience.

The band members will continue pursue their art road in the hope of more and more people will love the wind music.
