New York, New York!

09 June 2015

This year, Nord Anglia Education offered the opportunity for talented musicians and singers from our family of schools to be part of our first ever Global Orchestra. 

  • Children playing violins
  • Global Orchestra Auditions

Back in March, auditions were open for over 23,000 students across 31 Nord Anglia Schools, in 13 Countries. Those students were auditioning for the chance to be part of the Global Orchestra summer school and play in New York from 24th June- 1st July 2015.

Each school held their own auditions and the top performers were then invited to share a recorded audition with a global judging panel. The judges then selected up to three young musicians and singers from each school to create a truly international collective.  The judging panel eventually decided on 80 talented individuals comprising of 46 instrumentalists and 34 singers! Many congratulations to everyone who auditioned, the judges saw an exceptional number of talented individuals and they had to make some very tough decisions.

During the trip, students will participate in inspiring workshops and practice sessions guided by experts. Our students will also be privileged to visit The Juilliard School, which has created a special program of interactive performances with teaching artists in the fields of dance, drama, and music.

Performing arts are an integral part of our schools, helping to spark curiosity and develop our students’ communication and collaboration skills. The Global Orchestra has allowed young musicians from around the world to learn from each other, to perform together and to build their creativity and confidence as performers and global citizens. As well as exposing students to a wide range of musical experiences, the Global Orchestra summer school in New York will cultivate open-mindedness as students embrace the culture of the city and build friendships with peers from around the world.

Start spreading the news…..

The Global Campus ran a student journalist competition and Hannah Leigh from British International School of Houston and Margareta Durovcikova from The British School Warsaw are the winners who have won places on the trip to New York. They will be Nord Anglia roving reporters while in New York and each day will be reporting on the activities of the students. They will conduct interviews, work with a cameraman, present to camera, write articles and assist with photography, all of which will be shared through the Nord Anglia blog.

The piano auditions video will demonstrate the incredible standard of our musicians. Take a look!
