From 13-17 February, two high school band students, Ethan Tang and Samuel Kwan, represented ICS at the Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS) High School Honor Band, held in Salzburg, Austria. The students were selected to the honor band through a blind audition process and competed against instrumental students from international schools all over the world, from Egypt to Switzerland, for a place in the honor band. While at the honor band, they joined with the other selected musicians to rehearse concert music under the direction of Dr. Richard Heidel, and the honor band performed a gala concert after only two and a half days of rehearsal. Both students returned to Hong Kong full of renewed passion and inspiration, and it was a very positive experience for everyone involved.
