About Novo Winds
“Novo” means “anew, afresh and from the beginning” in Latin and serves as the band’s guiding principle to incorporate new performance concepts and musical directions in reaching out to a wider audience.
Under the musical direction of conductor Joseph Teo, Novo Winds presented their new concert series in Concert in 2018 and performed to a full house at their second instalment in 2019. Over the years, Novo Winds has also performed for numerous programs presented by Esplanade, such as Beautiful Sunday and Cool Classics. In addition, they have also participated in several performances including an overseas charity concert jointly presented with Sky Winds of Malaysia in 2016. The band also started to mentor young musicians from Bendemeer Secondary School, Ngee Ann Secondary School, and St. Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School from 2019.
