About Us

As the first polytechnic Symphony Orchestra in Singapore, the NYP Symphony Orchestra (NYPSO) has grown in stature and repertoire since its formation in 2002. 

Comprising wind, string and percussion ensembles, the Orchestra, together with strong support from its alumni members, has been on an incredible journey, and continues to grow from strength to strength. 

Members of the string ensemble explore and appreciate music created by stringed instruments of varying sizes, with most learning from scratch, under the tutelage of professional and alumni instructors. 

The percussion section experiments with various genres and styles of performing. Known for incorporating energetic and entertaining choreography into its routines, members often impress audience with their performances.

The wind ensemble completes the trinity of the NYP Symphony Orchestra. Its repertoire spans a variety of genres from challenging traditional classical pieces to popular modern tunes that are crowd favourites.
