St. Andrews is thrilled to announce that we are bringing together our finest young musicians and singers in our first ever Nord Anglia Education Global Orchestra performing in New York this summer!
Whether you have the voice of an angel or play like a concert pianist, we invite all High School students to showcase your talents and audition for our ensemble. Our 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. Students will participate in inspiring workshops and practise 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.
Auditions for High School students will take place in our 31 schools around the world in March. 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 our 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.
