Dover Court was visited by another Juilliard alumnus during the Juilliard-NAE Performing Arts Curriculum Week, with trumpeter Liam Day crossing the border from Malaysia having performed with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.

He began his visit with a ‘Star Wars’ arrangement at two special assemblies, captivating audiences by the very first note. The students got an up-close and personal look at a range of different types of trumpets and mutes, as Liam meandered his way through the audience while Mei Lin sonorously accompanied him on piano.

After an uplifting programme of trumpet repertoire to start the day, Liam made his way to the music room to perform at the Parent Coffee Meeting in an intimate setting. He then was carried off to the TV Room, where the student TV crew had prepared a series of interview questions.

Year 1 was soon in for a surprise, as Liam burst through their doors like the Pied Piper playing the Piccolo trumpet. The students’ delight at the unexpected visitor was evident to see, as some students danced to the swing rhythms.

Liam concluded his visit by working on stage with two rock bands in front of those students taking peripatetic lessons. This was a perfect opportunity for bands to get additional feedback in preparation for the DCIS Proms. Stage presence and dynamics were key topics that both bands addressed, and the effects of which were seen by their enthralling DCIS Proms performance.
