In commemoration of our nation’s 58th birthday, Novo Winds, in collaboration with students from Bendemeer Secondary School, Bedok South Secondary School, CHIJ St Theresa’s Convent, Peirce Secondary School, St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School and Tampines Secondary School, presents P.S. I Love Singapore.
Join Novo Winds as they take the stage alongside these young budding musicians, showcasing a delightful array of local favourite tunes that have contributed to the vibrant tapestry of Singapore’s music and culture, featuring renowned melodies like Dick Lee’s Bunga Sayang, S. Jesudassan's Munnaeru Vaalibaa and《如燕》originally sung by Singaporean singer Olivia Ong.
Formed in 2010, Novo Winds is a non-profit community band under the auspices of Toa Payoh South Community Club, dedicated to promoting musical developments in its musicians.
Novo means “anew, afresh and from the beginning” in Latin, and serves as the band’s guiding principle when incorporating new performance concepts and musical directions that reaches out to a wider audience.
Under the musical direction of young and dynamic conductor Joseph Teo, Novo Winds presented their new concert series in Concert in 2018 and performed to a full house on their second instalment in 2019. Notably, they presented their third instalment to a full house audience in the Esplanade Concert Hall in 2022. Over the years, Novo Winds has also performed at numerous programs presented by Esplanade, such as Beautiful Sunday and Cool Classics.
In addition, Novo Winds has taken part in various international performances, including an overseas charity concert in 2016 jointly presented with Sky Winds of Malaysia. Since 2019, Novo Winds has also kickstarted its outreach series and mentored young musicians from different schools.
