In order to celebrate the end of the semester, NUSAE held a musical camp for three days long after the final exam period. The objective of this event was to know more about each other as one team of Angklung musicians, through the time that was spent together in the camp. Additionally, the camp was held to improve everyone’s ability to play Angklung properly as a team by doing intensive practice together. Thus, it prepared everyone for the coming performances.
The main activity of the camp was practices. Everyday during the camp, we continued the weekly practice that had been paused for a few weeks due to final exam period. Through those practices, everyone are supposed to remember songs that had been learned during the semester. Furthermore, we also learned a new song in the process.
The most interesting part of the camp was the games. We started with a few ice breaking games in the first day. It was quite enjoyable, seen from the face of each members when they were playing. The next day, we continue our program with amazing race game. It was a small scale amazing race, using a few places that were near to NUS. This game was held so that everyone could relieve the stress that was built up during the exam period by going outside of NUS. As the final and closing event, we did the revelation of angels and mortals. Through this game, everyone had the chance to get to know each other and exchange gifts with one another.
It was the first NUSAE Musical Camp to be held. Hopefully, it will grow bigger and more interesting in the future with more exciting games and activities.
