This week the Music Department have been holding auditions for Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Choir.
These groups are for our most experienced musicians. The standard has been exceptionally high and thanks to all students who have prepared so well to face the daunting task of playing solo to all of their music teachers. The final results will be published on Monday 7th September at 4pm. All other music groups are open to all, so please sign up using CHQ.
We have also been auditioning for the limited number of places available on this year’s FOBISIA Orchestral Festival, to be held in British International School Phuket in November. Again the standard has been high, making the decision very difficult.
For all successful applicants, there is a further opportunity for one of the students to perform a concerto with the FOBISIA orchestra. If you auditioned and would be interested in this opportunity, please speak to one of the music teachers.
Once again thanks to all the students who have given us such a difficult job.
REMEMBER: The next ABRSM theory exam will be held on Saturday 7th November in the BIS secondary auditorium. The deadline to get in your application is 11th September. Application forms are available online at www.abrsm.org or from the secondary cashier.
