Magical Melodies at ISB
A well-deserved gold prize for one of our Elementary School students. A Massed Band Festival at our school, culminating in a gala concert. The Bangkok International String Festival, bringing together performers from six international schools in the Bangkok area for a one-of-a-kind event. These were just some of the highlights from a wonderful season of music at International School Bangkok (ISB).
Beginning with our youngest learners, ISB’s dedication to holistic education and personal development delivers a well balanced program where the arts forms a key part.
Music to our ears
Our students are continuously taking part in national and international performances, competitions, and practices that not only push them out of their comfort zone but provide exceptional learning opportunities with experienced teachers and international performers from around the world. This summer, one Elementary School student won the gold prize in the Bangkok Regional Round of the 21st Osaka International Music Competition, representing ISB. In 2021, he will go on to represent Thailand in the final round of the competition in Osaka, Japan.
Our school hosted a pair of music festivals in September, beginning with the Massed Band Festival which featured 100 musicians from three Bangkok international schools. The two-day event was hosted at ISB.
The festival featured a guest conductor (Dr. Gift from Mahidol University), and ended with a marvelous gala concert in our own Chevron Theater.
The same month, ISB also hosted the Bangkok International String Festival, which brought together over 100 students from six international schools in the area. This festival also featured a guest conductor – Jonathan Mann, Music Director of the UK Ensemble Cambrica and Artistic Director of the Immanuel Orchestra here in Thailand. The highlight of the event was a large orchestra gala performance, live-streamed to online audiences.
By putting their talents on display in such a grand setting, ISB students demonstrated their adaptability and responsibility. They also made new friends, had a wonderful time, and enriched the wider community through their efforts.
We’re thrilled to see our students collaborate and perform so well, and we can’t wait for our next chance to see them all in action!
