Cultural Activities

The wonderful art of peace is devoting ourselves entirely to linking beautiful human hearts with one another. When cultivated lives and culture itself are joined, the truly humane culture of the 21st century will be born. When fully realised humanity and art come together, truly humane art will be born.

Cultural activities have played a very important role in the organisation’s development since its founding days. The various divisions have, over the years, established music and movement groups to enable members to contribute their talents and potential while contributing towards the organisation’s events.

13 cultural groups have been established in SGS and they contribute significantly to promoting goodwill and friendship and win public recognition for the organisation as they showcase their performances at national and community events.


SGS made her debut performance at the National Day Parade and Chingay Parade in 1981. Today, these annual national events have become an important national contribution of the organisation. Members look forward to participating in these events as they serve as platforms for them to bond and develop themselves further, while contributing to the nation.

The organisation also supports and promotes arts and cultural activities with the objective to foster members’ talents and potential.

The “Friendship for Peace” Concerts were held to provide opportunities for the organisations to engage like-minded friends in the music arena. Besides talents from the local scene, SGS has invited artistic talents from the international SGI family including Latin Grammy Award-winning jazz flautist Nestor Torres, Jazz Award-winning Japanese Trumpeter Shunzo Ohno and Jazz pianist Yo Kano.
