Ruminations [cached]

I think that Adrian Chiang had done a very good job in bringing up NYJC.

This mail is sent regarding the termination of Mr Adrian Chiang's, Resident Conductor of NYJC Concert Band, contract.
Mr Chiang was employed in January 2004, having inherited a band that had a disastrous showing in 2003 SYF where they were given a bronze.
Indeed, Mr Chiang had managed to bring the band in a short 1yr 4mths to compete for a gold medal.Although his ability was doubted before he was appointed, this remarkable achievement had solidified his own reputation in the band world, and he is now of a respectable standing.It is akin to bringing a JC from the bottom 3 right up to the top 6 or 7th, in terms of A-levels ranking, in a year.I'm sure you would be able to appreciate the hard work he had put in.
Mr Adrian Chiang is also a member of Philharmonic Winds, Singapore's premier band.They entered the World Music Contest First Division held in Kerkrade, Netherlands, and emerged as a gold medalist with a final grade of 91.3, making them arguably, the best band in South East Asia.What is important about this is that he has been actively getting his friends in Philwinds to come down and impart their knowledge to the students.Other than sourcing for tutors in SSO, NYJC had gotten the best alternative due to the contacts of Mr Chiang.This is part of his development of NYJC.
Mr Chiang has also regularly invited the students to his home for gatherings and dinners.The bonding of the band had grown visibly closer since he was appointed.
About the conductor that was approached to take over from Mr Chiang.He is a very good conductor as well, and he was at AMKSS for sometime before he managed to develop them into a gold band.This proves the point that it is rather unrealistic to demand a man to deliver the goods when you don't even provide him the time to make these goods.
I am sorry for this long email to you, but the alumni sincerely hope that you will reconsider the decision to terminate Mr Chiang's contract.As the saying goes, "If it ain't broken, why fix it?"NYJC had improved tremendously under Mr Chiang, so why change?
Mr. Adrian Chiang has definitely put in lots of effort in the college band the past one and a half years. As we recall the NYJC SYF2005 batch were generally weaker than the competition, be it in musicianship or technicality.Almost a quarter of the band back then was made up of "last minute" members who were "borrowed" from the various CCAs.In short, their main commitment did not lie in the band. Despite these difficulties Mr. Chiang faced in SYF2005, he managed to bring the band back up to Silver.
The person who initiated Mr. Chiang's termination has truly shown his/her ignorance and has made a mockery out of himself/herself.
If Mr. Chiang does not get the job back, I sincerely wish him all the best in his future endeavours.Personally, I'm very grateful to him for bringing NYJC back to a strong band.
Well, Adrian did it.Ramu helped too, with his lame percussion "demonstration" that took almost half an hour.Hahaha.
