Tembusu Arts Council

The Tembusu Arts Council (TAC) is a sub-committee under the Tembusu College Students’ Committee (CSC). We are a team of individuals who love the performing arts, and seek to bring together our experiences to continually reinvent and invigorate the performing arts scene in the college. It aims to foster a culture of sharing and learning, by connecting passionate talents, as well as offering new opportunities to all who are willing to explore. The team's responsibilities include providing technical support for events and maintaining our music studio – the Abbey. Some of the initiatives include Connecting Awesome Talents, Dining Hall Experience and the Crash Course Series, among others.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
