+ Updated with video of the full concert performance (Thanks Taengoo).
In the light of the sudden distressing news to hit the Soshi fandom, here’s a little tidbit I just discovered that might cheer us all up a bit ;).
I saw this on the Soshi Weekly News Wrap on Soshified that I thought deserved a wider public distribution for the musical talent that was displayed by the performers.
At a recent Festival Of Arts performance by Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), a secondary school in Singapore, a medley of K-Pop hits was performed by their school orchestra band.
Songs by IU, BEG, 2AM and, of course, our favourite 9 ladies, SNSD, were performed in front of a highly appreciative audience. Excerpts from “Oh”, “Gee”, “Genie” and “Run Devil Run” were played during the performance.
I must say that it is good to see the Hallyu wave hit the local Singaporean school music scene too. Enjoy the video !!!

lol nice i wish my old school would’ve allowed us to do something like this
That medley was amazing~
I’m sure the girls and the other groups that were covered would be touched if they heard this :O
omg i love it!!!!!!!
Hallyu wave surely hit Singapore, Isn’t that right Kenneth. 😉
OMG SO GOOOOD!! Loved the genie arrangement, sounded so good it could have been a film soundtrack. Next favorite is Lupin by Kara and then Run, devil, run had me think “pink panther”
OMG that is sooooo cooool! I love it!
daebak.. hallyu is spreading everywhere even in SG orchestra bands!! xD
Ohh, I remember this performance. I was so surprised when I heard they were performing it for the FOA lol. According to my friends though the choreography was a nightmare to learn and do. coughgeecrabdancecough 😛 4 songs from Soshi and everyone cheered when they came out haha..
Hallyu has really made its way into Singapore, yay! 😀
Wow the Hallyu wave has definitely hit your homeland Kenneth! Really cool clip of the band rocking out!

Some of those, especially Genie, sounded amazing when played by an orchestra. I hope to see more of this in the future.
I must be very bad. I can’t even recognise any of the songs -.-
its so great..awesome!!!
i think majority of the members are sones..XD look how many songs frm SNSD they performed.. and this is the 1st time im impressed…XD
actually only a few members of the band are Sones, including myself. the student conductor is a Sone so he arranged the piece for the entire band to play 🙂
THIS IS AWESOME!!
IT WAS REALLY COOL AND DEFINITELY MADE MY NIGHT!! so proud to have such-kpop enthusiast Symphonic Band in school 😀
Member of the band (and Sone) here~

1) I Don’t Know by APink
2) Bonamana by Super Junior
3) Ring Ding Dong by Shinee
then it’s Sorry Sorry and so on 🙂
Arranger of piece: Joel Lee

We also have the full video but we are trying to cut it and upload because it’s size is gigantic 😛
Thanks for the support and encouragement 😀
Upload it soon! I’ll wait for it. thx ya. 😀
uhh we were told not to disclose to public because of copyright issues with the songs >< the one who uploaded the video was not a member of the band so it's his problem
That Genie arrangement literally sent chills down my spine!
And out of curiosity, what was the song between Gee and Genie?
Brown Eyed Girl’s Abracadabra 🙂
Amazing!! Simply amazing!!
Now, if only I can do something like that in my school….
