Mandarin Singing Classes
The SCCCI Mandarin Singing Classes have always been receiving overwhelming response from the SCCCI members since its introduction in year 2000.  After running for 4 years, it has successfully developed a pool of die-hard participants who are still very keen in learning to sing.

Other than proving the opportunity and environment for the participants to cultivate their interest and their skills in singing, the activity also aims to provide members with a platform to make friends and for them to network.  Song selections are mainly Chinese Folk Songs, Golden Oldies and Classical Ballad. A professional vocalist Mdm Liu Xiao Hong from China Beijing coaches members on essential singing techniques.

The schedules of the Singing Classes are every Tuesday and Saturday 6.30 pm – 10 pm, focusing on the oldies and Chinese folk hits respectively.

Singapore Dragon Boat Festival
The Dragon Boat Festival is one of the most spectacular traditions celebrated by the Chinese in Singapore. This festivity, which lasts for two weeks, is a commemoration of Qu Yuan, an ancient Chinese poet and statesman who protested against corruption and injustice by drowning himself. During this period, an amazing variety of dumplings and glutinous rice can be sampled. The highlight of this festival is the Singapore Dragon Boat Races where dragon boat teams from different countries, corporations and schools come together to engage in a fierce competition for the titles.

Since then, the Campaign has been held yearly in the month of September. Series of activities to promote the use of mandarin as well as to increase the awareness of Chinese culture were organized during the campaign.
