‘A Night at the Movies’ was a Night to Remember

27 mei 2015

‘A Night at the Movies’ was the title of this year’s annual Summer Music Concert and the evening brought a wide array of different repertoires that appealed to both young and old. 

The Key Stage 1 choir made the audience sway with their rendition of ‘Bare Necessities’ from ‘The Jungle Book’, whilst the senior strings majestically performed the epic music to ‘Jurassic Park’. The junior strings performed three pieces including the popular title tunes to ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and ‘The Muppets’.

The Key Stage 2 choir had an entertaining addition as the Ukulele Group joined in for one of their songs, but they also dedicated one of their songs to families in Nepal as part of our fundraising week.

The evening also saw a performance from the newly formed Senior Choir, featuring pupils from Years 9, 10 and 12. Along with movie classics such as ‘O Happy Day’ from ‘Sister Act 2’, the choir also performed an original arrangement of ‘The Hanging Tree’ from the film ‘The Hunger Games’. This was accompanied by a haunting counter melody on the cello by Victoria Sze in Year 12 who was also the arranger of this song.

To end the performance the audience had a special treat. For the first time the school created a large concert band and were joined on stage by members of the Shanghai Community Band to create an ensemble of over 60 musicians. Performing classic concert band repertoire, such as ‘The Radezky March’ and ‘Star Wars’, the  energetic and powerful ensemble were able to fill the auditorium and provide an uplifting and rousing end to an extremely successful Summer Concert.

A massive thank you must go out to all the pupils who participated in this event, the family and friends of those who supported the pupils, Shanghai Community Band and their director Mindy Ruskovich and of course the highly dedicated music staff at BISS Puxi who made it all come together so successfully.
