About us

Pasir Ris Secondary School Chinese Orchestra (PRSSCO) is committed to creating leaders with self-leadership and social awareness skills. As one of the premier school Chinese Orchestras in Singapore, we seek to develop our students into competent and credible musicians. Our resident Music Accreditation Programme seeks primarily to develop the talents of our Chinese Orchestra members by providing strong support for the enhancement and accreditation of musical skills.

PRSSCO was also selected to be the inaugural Music Talent Development Centre for Chinese Orchestra from 2009 to 2014.
