Fobisia Primary Music Festival
This Thursday, eighteen Year 6 and Year 6 students from St Andrews International School Bangkok will be travelling to Singapore to take part in the FOBISIA Primary Music Festival. Some instrumentalists will be working as part of the FOBISIA Primary Orchestra to learn some wonderful repertoire and 4 of our singers will sing with the choir. On Sunday they will be performing in a Celebration Concert which should be “out of this world” as the theme for this year is ‘Space’. Good luck to all our young musicians on this exciting adventure.
Julliard Alumni Visiting Artist Programme
Principal Bassoonist, Hong Kong Philharmonic and Juilliard Alumni
This week, we enjoyed listening to the wonderful tone of Ben Moermond’s Bassoon in school. At Primary he worked with Years 5 and 6, Reception, Years 1 and 2 and performed a concert for STA Sing and parents at the end of the day. It was a real treat to see and hear a bassoon up close right here in school and an incredible experience to hear a world class player performing just for us.
At High School Ben delivered a series of workshops to our KS3 students and to our Music students in KS 4 and 5. A highlight of Ben’s High School visit was the amazing concert he performed at lunchtime on Thursday in the Atrium..
