From March 6-10, 15 talented and enthusiastic ICS high School Orchestra Students traveled to cold Seoul Korea to participate in the 2019 ACSC String Orchestra Festival hosted byYISS. They joined 3 other international schools to rehearse and perform music under the direction of guest conductor Ms. Helen Weed. The students were challenged with difficult, university-level repertoire and rehearsed for 15 hours over the course of 3 days before performing a concert Saturday afternoon.
In addition to rehearsing and performing, the students were able to experience some of Korean culture and performed a mini-concert for a Korean community center. Students massaged elderly people and gave them manicures.
Our students formed new friendships and gained a greater appreciation for the Korean culture and returned to Hong Kong full of renewed enthusiasm for music. Well done, ICS!Back to ICS News
