The British International School of Boston is thrilled to announce a new program from Nord Anglia Education that is bringing together the finest young musicians and singers from across our international family: the 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 from Year 5 and up to showcase their talents and audition for our ensemble.
The Global Orchestra will consist of a choir, soloists and instrumental ensembles that will join together in New York this June for an exclusive week long residential program culminating in a public performance to celebrate their musical accomplishments.
"This is another unbelievable opportunity emerging from our membership of the Nord Anglia Education family," said Headmaster Paul Wiseman. "To spend a whole week in New York City with musicians young and old from all around the world presents a unique and exceptional experience."
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.
"The Global Orchestra is a fantastic and unique way for BISB students to make and experience music," said Head of Music Emily Gillander. "They will meet other students who are passionate about music from around the world and learn to combine this passion into a musical performance."
Auditions for both primary and secondary students will take place in the school in March.
The top performers from the British International School of Boston and our Nord Anglia Education sister schools 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 the 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. This means that students can participate in this program at no cost to them.

More information on auditions will be shared with students and parents as soon as it is available.
