24 February 2015

Nord Anglia Education and BIS Abu Dhabi are thrilled to announce that we are bringing together our finest young musicians and singers in our first ever Global Orchestra performing in New York this summer!

Whether you have the voice of an angel or play like a concert pianist, we invite students to showcase their talents and audition for our ensemble.

The Global Orchestra will consist of a choir, soloists and instrumental ensembles who will join together in New York this June for an exclusive week -long residential programme, culminating in a public performance to celebrate their musical accomplishments.

What will take place?

Students will participate in inspiring workshops and practice sessions guided by experts, watch performances by elite artists and be immersed in the city’s arts culture to nurture their talent. Students will also develop their creativity, confidence and collaboration skills as they work with and learn from each other.

How do students audition?

Auditions for both primary and secondary students will take place in all of Nord Anglia Education's 31 schools around the world in March, including BIS Abu Dhabi. More information about audition times will be provided shortly. The top performers from each school will be invited to share a recorded audition with a global judging panel, who will select three young musicians and singers from each school to join 93 student international ensemble.

This exciting opportunity is being funded by Nord Anglia Education as part of their commitment to helping students develop the skills and talents to achieve their ambitions.

If you’re interested in finding out more about how your child can take part in the Global Orchestra, please contact Miss Rochell from the Music department.
