Guzheng’s Reflections for Singapore Youth Festival 2017
Our SYF journey had been an arduous one, not just for the leaders of the CCA, but also for the teachers and all the Guzheng members. We had undergone many hardships and challenges together. Many members cried due to the tremendous stress we faced at some points in time. However, as a leader, I am heartened to know that the junior members understood why we were pushing them to the best of their abilities and we definitely bonded through our practice sessions.
As what our teacher-in-charge, Mrs Ho always says, “we reap what we sow”. We genuinely believe that the tears and sweat that all of us have contributed would bring us great results.
The leaders are proud to see their members’ growth over the past one and a half years – having witnessed their lack-of-enthusiasm at the beginning, and how they have progressed to being keen team players over time.
Despite the journey being a physically and mentally tiring one, it was undoubtedly fulfilling and rewarding as we have forged long-lasting friendships and fond memories together. Guzheng Ensemble is truly our second family!
