SOASC hoped s to defend National Choir Title

Choir competition amongst secondary schools and collages are becoming more and more popular as more and more students audition to be part of the school choir.

Last year 36 schools participated in the Choir competition hosted by the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Collage. This year 27 schools thorough out the nation took part in the national Choir competition held at Pg Anak Puteri Rashidah Secondary School in Lumut, Kuala Belait.

Defending national Choir Champions, Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Collage (SOAS) are hoping to defend their title for a second year running, however this year although they have a good chance of defending that title they face stiff competition from other schools.

 Mohd Affendi bin Abd Rahman, the conductor for SOASc said that this year the patriotic song chosen for SOASc is ‘Tekad Pewaris’, where it is hoped that with the arrangement  by Mohd Asyramisyanie bin Kamis it is enough to defend the title.

According to Mohd Affendi, choir groups in schools are becoming more and more popular, as each year students increase in numbers to audition to be part of the choir group. Last year an unprecedented number of schools took part in the national competition. This year although it is less than last year, it is still a large number of schools participating in the competition.

He said that it was very different 6 years ago, when the choir program was still in its early stage. It fully blossomed as a national past time last year, where choir groups school budgets are substantial compared to other CCA programs.

He explained that only year 10 students are allowed to take part in the choir, and each year choir group starts from scratch with new talent to be moulded into powerful instruments. Choir competition revolves around patriotic songs to inspire patriotism and devotion to King and country. It is inspiring to hear the songs, sang in the choir, it raises the spirit of patriotism, fills the soul of nationalism and inspires the MIB concept amongst students, teachers and the community at large.

SOASc will be defending their title against 9 other schools in the  choir competition held today (Saturday 10th April) at PAP Rashidah Secondary School, Seri Paduka Sultan Science Collage, Raja Isteri Girls High School, Sayidna Othman Secondary School, Seri Mulia Sarjana Secondary School PAP Masna Secondary school, Sayidina Omar Al Khattab secondary school and Pg Jaya Negara Secondary School.
