The Primary and Secondary school students have finally been able to display their musical skills on the school stage again. After nearly three years without a live in-person choir concert, our PYP Choir students put on a remarkable performance for the VIS community on 24th of May. Originally scheduled for December to be a Winter Holiday concert, the performance was moved to spring due to existing COVID restrictions. Despite the setback, choir students and their teachers remained committed and continued to rehearse. Their efforts truly paid off with the spectacular performance. The VIS theatre was full of community members and proud parents watching and cheering this long-awaited performance.
Separately, on 9 June we enjoyed a great atmosphere during the (Secondary) Summer Concert and the students loved sharing their achievements with the VIS community. The Beginner Band finally had their wonderful first public performance, while the Jazz Band gave their (absolutely stunning) last. The guitar ensemble showed their variety of repertoire with a traditional Peruvian song as well as their version of “Hotel California”. The bands and strings played in many different combinations - individual, combined strings, strings with band, strings with the choir - such a lovely variety! The Middle School Choir impressed with their pure tone and the High School Choir beautifully performed a quite challenging piece by G.F. Händel. Both choirs combined brought the house down with their performance of “Ain't No Mountain High Enough” - together with the advanced ensemble.
These performances came to celebrate the skills and progress which the hard working students have acquired during this school year, as well as the community coming together and celebrating the children's learning experience.
