FOBISIA Primary Music Festival
Last week 18 musicians from St Andrews International School Bangkok represented our school at the FOBISIA Primary Music Festival in Singapore. The children worked really hard all weekend perfecting their notes, dynamics, tone and ensemble playing as part of the Fobisia Orchestra, Windband, String Ensemble and Choir. The level of playing was very high and the performance which took place on Sunday 18 March was really impressive. The theme of this year’s festival was Concert in the Cosmos and the repertoire included Star Wars, a movement from Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, The Age of Aquarius, and Fly Me to the Moon.
As always, the St Andrews students were a credit to our school. They worked hard, were fun, polite and sensible throughout the trip. Well done, and we are already looking forward to next year’s Festival at British School, Manila. More information to follow in Term 3 about how to get involved next time.
