As a celebration of their hard work, we would like to invite you to the annual IB IGCSE Music recital, to be held on Wednesday and Thursday 7th and 8th February at 18.00 in the theatre. Each concert will be a different programme and will last about an hour.
This event is an informal recital where you will have the opportunity to hear a 15 or 20 minute performance by the IB students and a solo or ensemble piece performed by the Year 11 students.
Our IB group (Celine - piano, Igor – bass guitar, Tue Minh - piano, Vicky - voice) will perform a varied programme of music showing many different styles on their chosen instruments.
A wide variety of solo and ensembles will also be performed by our IGCSE students including instruments such as voice, sax, cello, violin, piano, guitar and flute.
No tickets are required for this event. We look forward to seeing you for what promises to be two enjoyable evenings of musical talent.

IGCSE & IB Music Programmes
The IGCSE music course aims to enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of various styles of music through activities in listening, composing and performing. It helps pupils to recognize and understand the music from the main Western historical periods and styles, and music from around the World, forming an appreciation of cultural similarities and differences. The course also provides a foundation for further study in music.
The aims of the IB Music programme are to give students the opportunity to explore and enjoy the diversity of music throughout the world and encourage students to develop perceptual skills through a breadth of musical experiences, where they will learn to recognize, speculate, analyse, identify, discriminate and hypothesize in relation to music. It also enables students to develop creatively their knowledge, abilities and understanding through performance and/or composition and assists students to develop their potential as musicians both personally and collaboratively, in whatever capacity, to the full.
