Each of the three participating Chinese orchestras took turns to showcase their SYF set and choice pieces. Thereafter, the instructors and teachers-in-charge from the different schools gave their feedback on each performance.

There was also time for bonding and learning among the students as they exchanged pointers on their musical skills and appreciation during the sectional interaction time.

Indeed, this music exchange not only provided a platform for students to further sharpen their skills but also strengthened the ties between each participating school.
