Nord Anglia Education Global Orchestra Participants Announced

April 21, 2015

Last month, hundreds of students auditioned in their schools for a once in a lifetime chance to be selected for the Global Orchestra music summer school in New York. Three BISB students were among the 81 student musicians selected to participate.

More than 40 BISB students auditioned for a spot in the Global Orchestra last month, and it was announced this week that three- Year 12 student Shruthi Sudhakar, Year 11 student Rick Boer and Year 6 student Ethan Walsh- earned a spot in the orchestra.

The three students will join dozens of others from Nord Anglia Education schools around the world in New York City this summer for a week of music education, culminating in a performance at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music.

Shruthi earned a spot as a floutist, Rick earned a spot as the principal saxophonist and Ethan earned a spot as a violinist. After a series of in-school and video auditions, 45 students were selected for the orchestra from around the world, and 36 students were selected for the orchestra's choir ensemble.

The summer school will create outstanding opportunities for students to develop their musical skills, knowledge and understanding through rehearsals, workshops delivered by experts and peer-to-peer learning. They will experience the vibrant culture of New York and benefit from a bespoke workshop delivered at The Juilliard School.

Nord Anglia Education believes in providing its students with unrivalled opportunities to explore their potential and develop into confident, successful young people. The Global Orchestra will allow young musicians from around the globe to learn from each other, to perform together and to build their creativity and confidence as performers and global citizens.

Congratulations to all of the students selected to participate, and to all of the BISB students who auditioned.

The level of skill demonstrated by all Nord Anglia Education students who auditioned, particularly those on the piano, made the selection process very difficult, Nord Anglia Education officials said.
