The Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ) Concert Band has distinguished herself as one of the most promising Secondary School Bands in Singapore. Led by well-known conductor Mr. Adrian Chiang, the Band was awarded the Certificate of Distinction at the 2013 Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation for Concert Bands.

CHIJ Concert Band has been invited to perform at the Singapore Istana for His Excellency President S.R. Nathan, in addition to numerous other public and school performances. Her major annual concert 'Fantasia', as well as her subsidiary concert 'Faith, Hope, and Love', has been well-received and sold to full house year after year. CHIJ Concert Band plays an integral role in the aesthetics and cultural life of the school, with over 110 girls participating in the band programme.

On 14th July 2012, the band was invited to play the Presidential Fanfare at the Life Art Society 40th Anniversary. This a great honour for the brasses especially as they got to meet and play for our President, Dr Tony Tan. In line with the school's motto "Simple in Virtue, Steadfast in Duty", the Band believes in the value of diligence and hard work in her continual quest for musical excellence.

"One heart, One mind, One band, One sound".
