The band had travelled all the way from the UK to perform a series of concerts and workshops at international schools in Ho Chi Minh City. For BIS, the band began by performing at the EY&I campus, giving our youngest children the opportunity to experience hearing a huge range of brass instruments not commonly found in Vietnam. The musicians were even gracious enough to allow our EYFS and Infant children an opportunity to try out their instruments! During the afternoon, the band performed a longer concert for some of our junior and secondary students, exposing them to the particular timbre and warm sound which can only come from a brass band. The day was rounded off in spectacular fashion when the band performed a fantastic concert to parents, also featuring our BIS Community and KS3 Choirs.
This was a fantastic event for all involved and we hope it has inspired a plethora of future brass players at BIS HCMC. If your child is interested in learning a brass instrument at school please contact one of our Instrumental Leaders: Mr Rhys (Primary) Rhys.Barker@bisvietnam.com">Rhys.Barker@bisvietnam.com or Ms Jacombs (Secondary) Keziah.Jacombs@bisvietnam.com">Keziah.Jacombs@bisvietnam.com
