Music recital “Festival of Lights’ was held in ISS International School Preston Campus. DP, and MYP music students performing their music, where they could show off their talents to parents, teachers, and friends. Beautiful songs lightened up the dark campus, bringing lights all over the place.
Performances were performed in the hall, and outside blue table area. In the hall was mainly singers, and pianist. and outside was bands, and guitarists. The different types of instruments and song played and place changed the atmosphere letting the audience feel like being in two different music recital.
The performance lighted up with group performance of the Grade 9 students. Hands shaking, body tensed, and cold sweating. It was obvious that the Grade 9 students were nervous. First time performing in front of so many audiences was the reason, however relying on each other and effort they have put in made a wonderful sound, and lead to a successful performance. The Grade 10’s, who have a little more experience, played beautiful pieces that let the audience flow along with the music.
The DP students performed all of their recital pieces very well. For them, most of them were solo performers, and so the nerves could easily get them; however, most of the DP students have had performing experience, and thus they could perform their pieces with ease.
As always, a wide variety of music was performed by the DP and MYP music students, and all in all it was a great night.
