Chroma Band did it again!
With putting on a fantastic performance at the Garden Party of 2017 at the British Chamber of Commerce. Their 7 piece set list was well received by all, and they were even able to meet the Chancellor!
Our musical of choice this year was Legally Blonde, put on by YCIS Beijing Secondary School. Three of my IGCSE Music students played main roles in the cast. It was a spectacular show – the students did a great job.
My pit band did a spectacular job of mastering the difficult music and putting on 4 great performances of this full 2-act musical. Talk about commitment!
The success of our show attracted local publications, as seen in the link here:
On Dec 3rd, we took a group of secondary music students to the Hilton Beijing to perform selected Christmas music. We also joined forces with local Hope schools students to perform Christmas carols in English and Chinese.
On Dec 2nd we took selected choir students from secondary to perform Christmas carols at the British Embassy for their Winter Fair. We had many fair visitors sing along and tap their feet to our Christmas tunes.
The Senior Orchestra students performed at the British Ball in Beijing for the 3rd year in a row. This year they performed Mozart’s Symphony 25 movement 1. It was met with great success.
On May 21, 2011, YCIS held the annual Global Community Day. We welcomed the local community to enter into our school community to engage in fun summer activities. Performing onstage were dancers, soloists, orchestras, and swing bands. A good time was had by all.
We took some selected jazz band members to perform at the widely attended Expat Fair 2010. The students performed well and enjoyed the public experience.
