More than 81 student musicians and singers from Nord Anglia Education schools around the world will jump straight into rehearsals in preparation for the Nord Anglia Global Orchestra concert on June 30 at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.
During the trip, students will participate in inspiring workshops and practice sessions guided by experts. Our students will also be privileged to visit The Juilliard School, which has created a special program of interactive performances with teaching artists in the fields of dance, drama, and music.
The three Boston students headed to the Global Orchestra- Shruthi S. (flute), Rick B. (saxophone) and Ethan W. (violin)- were eagerly awaiting their departure for the train station Wednesday morning, looking forward to getting to New York City and meeting their fellow orchestra members.
"I'm most excited to meet a lot of new people, and getting to spend time with people I wouldn't normally," said Ethan. "I think it will be great to learn about a different culture and learn what people are like in other parts of the world."
Shruthi said she has never been in an orchestra before, and is looking forward to expanding her musical knowledge and improving her collaboration skills.
"It will be really cool to play with others from around the globe," she said. "I'm hoping I can gain some new techniques."
