YCIS Shanghai students, families, faculty, and friends celebrated the approaching summer holidays in June with a series of concerts, showcasing the substantial accumulation of music the students had learnt throughout the past school year. The Primary and Secondary Summer Concerts included a wide range of student talent from all four YCIS Shanghai campuses! Young students in the school’s violin programme, choirs, orchestras, rock bands, dance groups, and instrumental music groups provided the concert attendees with a wonderful selection of musical arrangements and styles.
In Pudong, the Century Park Campus hosted their concert on the greens outside, providing guests with a fun night of outdoor entertainment. From classic jazz music to modern rock songs, concertgoers were able to unwind and relax during the open-air music event. Students from the Regency Park Campus took their musical abilities off-campus for a “Gala Music and Violin Concert”. Primary students in Years 2–3 demonstrated the musical skills they learnt in YCIS’s violin programme at the Da Ning Theatre in Shanghai. The students also provided guests with a sample of the school’s drama programme, and performed one scene from the Primary spring musical production of Pirates of the Curry Bean.
In Puxi, the Gubei Campus celebrated summer with a creative range of musical performances. The Gubei Secondary Orchestra, campus chamber choir, contemporary choir, chorale, individual students, and even the Parent Organisation group choir all put on a fantastic show for the full house of assembled guests. Primary students from the Hongqiao Campus provided their parents and friends with a colourful evening of music, dance, and fun, with students from the school’s music programmes and Co-curricular activity groups performing exceptionally well.
Music and performances are important parts of the YCIS curriculum and allow students to express themselves creatively and to develop important life skills. To learn more about the importance of music and performance at YCIS, click here.
