NATCOMP 2012 Finals

Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Keat Hwa from Kedah emerged victorious in the National Band Competition (Natcomp) 2012, held at the Gong Badak Indoor Stadium, here last night.

By performing an energetic sketch of the Spanish icon and spirits of Matadors, SMK Keat Hwa scored 84.45 points, beating eight other participants to take home the challenge trophy and certificates.

The band also dominated four other categories, namely the best colour guard, percussion, brass and woodwind and general effect.

SMK Keat Hwa that has emerged champion nine times in the competitions which entered its 19th edition this year, came in with the theme of Unity in Harmony.

Co-curriculum and Arts division officer in the Education Ministry Mohd Rashid Mean, who represented deputy Education minister Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi, presented prizes to the winners.

Mohd Rashid said three top bands will be representing Malaysia to compete against some of the top bands in the world, at the Malaysia World Band Competition.

Meanwhile, SMK Keat Hwa band instructor, Tang Chia Hoe, 40, said though the band had only trained for four months, discipline was a main factor for their success.

"The Spanish theme was selected by the team without any interference from the management. We were confident they could undertake the task and interpret it into victory," he told Bernama.

The competition, held first time outside Kuala Lumpur, was organised in collaboration with the Malaysia Band Association (MBA), Education Ministry, Terengganu state government, State Education Department and ZI Production Sdn Bhd.
