Since the genesis of NTU Guitar Ensemble in 1985, “Nocturne” has always been a trademark and tradition of NTU Guitar Ensemble’s annual concert. Nocturne 2018 saw a highly successful concert conducted by Mr Kevin Yeo, with tickets being fully sold-out.
Nocturne 2019 will feature a wide variety of pieces, from classical, to contemporary and to pop music. This year, we will also be showcasing a few arrangements by our very own members for the concert. NTU Guitar Ensemble always strives to deliver our pieces with quality, passion and love for our audience to enjoy. So come down and join us for a night of indulgence in classical guitar performances!
The NTU Guitar Ensemble was founded in 1985, adopting the Niibori guitar system soon after and has established itself as one of the first guitar orchestras in Singapore. From the light and clear notes of the Alto guitar to the rich sonority of the unique Guitarron, these guitars possess a full range of pitches and tones to achieve versatility in artistic expression across genres. The ensemble is currently under the baton of conductor Mr. Kevin Yeo and instructor Ms. Tan Simin.
The NTU Guitar Ensemble participates in various performances within and outside NTU, where members gain exposure and performance experience. Aside from our annual concert, Nocturne, which showcases an eclectic mix of genres and guitar styles, the ensemble regularly performs in campus as well as at public events, be it providing musical entertainment at official ceremonies, or taking part in volunteer projects.
