Transposition

Transposition is a classical music IG that aims to allow Tembusians to come together and make music. Although we predominantly play classical music, we enjoy other genres like pop and jazz too. We organise our own in-house concert (Classical Night) almost every semester, and also participate in college activities like Open Day and Arts Week. Practice sessions are usually casual jam sessions in the Abbey, and it’s up to members to decide when they want to do so. We try to accommodate all different instrument players as much as we can, so as long as you can play an instrument, you’re welcome to join us!

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.
