Last week, 18 talented students from our school flew to Beijing to participate to the first NAE Choral Festival. Our school has sent two groups of choir to the event: the treble choir which students were mostly from primary level; and the mixed choir which students were from secondary. Our students were very excited to sing with the other students from NAE China schools and work with Dinah Helgeson which was the conductor on the said event. The students had been practicing their repertoires for almost 2 months prior to the festival and although most of the songs were complicated, they still did accomplish their goal to finish studying all the repertoires before the festival. During the festival, our students have showed that they are committed, ambitious and responsible as most of the time they were chosen to lead some parts of the repertoires.
