Battle of the Bands, June 25, 2007

Update June 21, 2007 (7pm)

Our band boys deserve our praises and respect. They have been practising very hard at the basketball court and pavilion for the past three weeks, sometimes until 10pm, perfecting their formations, movements and musical skills. Senior members, especially those in Lower and Upper Six, join in the fold, contributing the much needed boost to the rest of the team. Those who have left school years ago, either studying in colleges or already working, have not detached from the band. They return to inspire and encourage. A true demonstration and potrayal of the Michaelian spirit. Thank you, Wai Hin (you still managed that smile despite hard at work blowing the trumpet), Jonzen Chow (studying business at Sunway College) and Lee Mun Ming (took time off from work and has never failed to lead our boys for the past few years)

The state inter-school Band Competition will be held at the Stadium Perak on June 25, 2007 at 7.30pm. St Michael's very own Michaelian Military Band, for many years, has been a force to be reckoned with.

Doesn't matter if last year, SMI won the third prize, with SMJK Ave Maria being the first and SMJK Nan Hwa Sitiawan clinching the second position. We left the stadium proudly that night because Joshua Ng Ken Ho took home the Best Drum Major award, an honourable and prestigious accolade.

Advisers Mr Liew Boon Ket and Mr Tiong Hong Chai need to be commended for running such an outstanding and extremely hardy band. Wish the band members all the best this year. We stand united in supporting all of you.

St Michael's supporters - make a trip to the stadium on June 25.
