IASAS Art/Dance/Drama- Hosts needed


It is ISM’s turn to host the IASAS Art/ Dance/ Drama Cultural Convention. With this in mind, we would like to ask for volunteers to help host the 115 delegates. The groups arrive on February 27th and leave on the morning of March 3rd.  If you have space for students, we would really love to hear from you. Hosting students is what makes the whole IASAS network possible and is also an enjoyable experience so get a form from the Fine and Performing Arts Office or email me on HillmanM@ismanila.org and I will send you a soft copy. If you have any more questions regarding hosting, please ring the FAO on 8408630.

Childrens’ Musical Theatre, January 31st


Children’s Musical Theatre

Let the Grade 4 students take you to a land called Enchantia. This is a special occasion, which only comes around every few years, where the inhabitants of Earth can finally make contact with the inhabitants of this magical land so be sure to accept your invitation. With 50 Grade 4’s involved, there is certainly a lot of creativity being expelled, both on and off the stage. This is the show where even you will be part of the action. Without giving too much away, it is worth coming for the entrance alone.

Where & When: January 31st at 6pm in the FAT for Family and friends  (there are 2 other daytime performances for ES students at 1pm on January 31st and at 8am on March 1st)

AMIS Delegates travel to festivals


The first Arts trip for 2013 left on Wednesday, with 10 students travelling to Beijing to take part in The Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS) Middle School orchestra and choir festivals.  Then next Wednesday 2 more students head for Yangon, Myanmar for the band festival. Each festival consists of 3 days of workshops, large group playing or singing, and a final concert on the Saturday night. The 12 students all gained their places at the festival by handing in audition tapes early last semester. The selection process is quite rigorous so the following students can justly feel proud of their achievement:

Moon Hwan (Kyle) Kim (8)

Seok Hyun (John) Ma (8)

Akira Sugata (8)

Mitsuki Sugata (7)

Anne Safran (8)

Akshay Sharathchandra (8)

Jin Young Cho (8)
