IB Visual Arts and Music Show - 6th March 2018

Tuesday evening saw our annual IB Visual Arts Exhibition and Music Recital.  The rationale behind the pieces of art, which included a broad range of influences, mediums and themes, was provided to the visitors prior to them enjoying the music performances. Our pianists and trumpet player then took us on a journey through Chopin, Bach Kurpinski and Satie with over an hour of high quality music.

Visual Arts

Visual arts are an integral part of everyday life, permeating all levels of human creativity, expression, communication and understanding. The IB Visual Arts course has encouraged our artists to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. The past 18 months have been a thought-provoking time in which they have developed analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking. They have worked towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers. The exhibition of their work demonstrated that they are indeed art-makers. There was much buzz around the artists as they confidently discussed their work with their captivated audience. The vast array of artwork took many forms and really challenged the viewer to think about what they saw. It is always pleasing to hear parents, family, friends, fellow students and colleagues talk about how talented and creative our students are; this is a testament to their hard work and dedication throughout the course and to the teachers involved in helping them to reach their potential.

As part of the IB Diploma Music course, students must perform a varied programme of music that displays a range of skills across several genres. Constance, Tom and Spencer certainly performed a varied programme on Tuesday night, demonstrating 18 months of hard work on their chosen instrument. The early stages of their musical journey started by them selecting a diverse repertoire that then required commitment, dedication and stamina to take them through months of rehearsals. Throughout the journey, they needed strength to be objective, to reflect on and develop their work. For most people, it is a nerve-wracking experience to perform and express oneself in front of a room full of family, friends and teachers; but all three musicians overcame this challenge. Their performances were diverse, musical and technically proficient and all three of them shined as musicians; we are very proud of them as performers.
