About OBOG Wind Symphony
Established in 2008
Following our inaugural concert, OBOG Live! in 2008, we continued to establish various performing opportunities and have even had the privilege to collaborate with overseas ensembles and conductors for exchanges and concerts. OBOG is also committed in our vision to spread the joy of music to our community and have hence been involved in various events organised by Yuhua Community Centre, as part of their community outreach programme.
Under the direction of our resident conductor, Mr Lim Yean Hwee, OBOG Wind Symphony continues to strive for music excellence and at the same time, engages youths and gives back to the community.
OBOG Wind Symphony is an official IG under Yuhua Community Club.
