The Desford Colliery Band are visiting Vietnam for a series of concerts and performances in the week commencing 27 May.
We have been lucky enough to secure a visit from them on 1 June, performing from 1.30 to 2.30 in the auditorium. The band will also be performing for the primary school students in the morning.
The Desford Colliery Band have previously toured successfully in Singapore, Jakarta and Bangkok playing for the students at major international schools such as Tanglin, Shrewsbury and BIS Jakarta among others. It is a fantastic opportunity for our students here in BIS who do not get to hear top class live music very often, and an invaluable opportunity for our exam students to develop their skills and awareness.
The British Brass Band is an iconic musical British musical group, producing a powerful sound with its mixture of spine-tingling fortissimos, breath-taking pianissimos and star turns from many of the best brass soloists you are likely to hear. All of the musicians are professional players. For more information about the group please see http://www.desfordcollieryband.co.uk
The band will also be doing a public performance at the Conservatory of Music in District 1. Tickets are available for 200,000 VND from AP2 BIS Reception or ticketbox.vn.
