From 15th May to 19th May, NACIS choir attended the NAE choral festival held in BSBSY in Beijing. This was NAE’s first choral festival and there were 9 schools from the China region that joined in.
We were so honored to have master conductor Dinah Lindberg Helgeson there and she led our students to understand how to put energy and confidents into singing. Students got the best experience and made new friends. On Saturday night, we had our final concert. Around 250 students being together and showed parents and teachers their best performance. We so appreciated the hosting team and are looking forward to the next choral festival.
