10 Days of Chinese New Year: Day 3

04 February 2015

Today was the third day of Chinese New Year and Years 6 and 7 were treated to a visit from a classical Chinese orchestra. Frederick and William from Year 8 have written a report on the activity for us…

  • Students at the British International School Shanghai enjoy a performance from the Chinese Orchestra who have come across from Pudong.

For the third day of the school's Chinese New Year Celebration, we enjoyed the delicacy of traditional Chinese music brought to us by high school students from the Jing Cai School in Pudong. The group of six talented students and teachers have performed before at BISS Pudong and today they were invited to perform at our newly-built Stage One in primary. As a fan of traditional Chinese culture, we were amazed by the high quality of the music and the effort they put into their performance.

They even kindly allowed our students to have a go with the instruments, which included erhu, liu qinng, gu zheng, zhu di, mu yu and pipa. This was an experience I will always remember!

学校中国新年庆祝的第三天,六位来自上海进才中学的高中师生给我们带来了一场精彩的乐器表演。学生们都是十六岁,一大早就从浦东匆匆带着传统的中国乐器赶来BISS浦西,往年新年他们都是被邀请到BISS浦东,今天是他们第一次来到我们浦西校区表演。她们带来了古筝、二胡、琵琶、柳琴、木鱼和竹笛。她们精练的技术使乐曲高亢激扬,充满了中国新年的气氛。
