This week, the first auditions for IASAS Cultural Convention are taking place. For those new to ISM, Cultural Convention is actually 3 separate events hosted by 3 different IASAS schools. This year, IASAS CC is March 3rd, 4th and 5th and is held in the following places:
- Debate & Forensics hosted by ISKL in Kuala Lumpur
- Art/ Dance/ Drama hosted by TAS in Taipei
- Music (Strings/ Band/ Vocals/ piano) hosted by us!
This week we see Music auditions taking place. Students should have already talked to the IASAS coaches if they want to be involved. These are Ms. Carrie Grev for Vocals, Mr. Tom Nazareno for Band and Mr. Giovanni Bobbise for Strings.
In the first week after October break, Drama auditions will take place in the FAT on November 5th & 6th and then Dance on the 18th. This year, Ms. Tami Monsod and Ms. Yek Barlongay will direct a joint Dance/ Drama piece, which will certainly be an exciting event.
Art has a selection process that happens within G22 Art classes.
Debate and Forensics coaches will also start selections in November so students should watch out for details of these mentioned in assembly and posted on the Fine Arts Office notice board.
Welcome back to another exciting year for the Arts at ISM. Having been inspired by various experiences over summer, teachers are back from the break and are now keen to see our talented students breath life into their ideas. The link below is a list of the major events the Fine Arts Office supports throughout the year. (In addition, we support many curriculum-derived events and details of these will come throughout the year from the organising teachers.)
Welcome back! Here is a list of the Fine and Performing Arts events for the year. Make this the year you try something new! The first big events for HS are auditions for the HS Play and in MS the afterschool program includes a a One Act Play Festival. For more information, come and see me, Mrs. Hillman, at the Fine Arts Office.
The Art Department is running an exhibition of work from MS Art, HS Intro Art and HS Explore Art courses in the foyer of the ISM Fine Arts Theatre. Come celebrate the opening of this joint exhibition at 3pm on Friday, May 9th. This is an excellent opportunity to come and talk with the artists about their work. The work will remain on show until May 15th so if you can’t make it on the 9th, you can come anytime during the next week. (Please note: the MS Play also opens at 6pm on May 9th so it is a great chance to see both artistic endevours.)
IASAS Cultural Convention 2014 ran from March 5th to 9th in three locations around Asia and saw some amazing performances in all diciplines. Students are all back at school now suffering from post IASAS blues and dreaming of next year’s inspirational peformances. To enjoy this year’s IASAS moments again, go to the following places:

This week is IASAS Previews befor the IASAS Cultural Convention Delegates travel to Kuala Lumpur (Music), Taipei (Debate and Forensics) and Jakarta (Art/ Dance/ Drama). It would be great to see people at these events. Here are the schedules for the events:
The MS Art exhibit for semester one is showing until the end of the semester in the Middle School Library. Come admire the creativity and variety of the students work which runs the full range of artistic mediums. Classes exhibiting include Grade 5/6 Art, ARTmud (ceramics), ARTsculpt (Scuplture), ARTstudio Drawing, Painting, Printmaking) and the new DigiART (Photography, Graphic Design, Film).
We are coming to the end of a very busy cultural year at ISM with the last two events in the Fine Arts Theatre before it is taken over for Graduation preparation. This weekend is K-12 Dance Recital, which sees all ES and MS co-curricular and curricular Dance classes perform alongside some of the HS Dance classes. Then on Wednesday evening, we see the final Music concert for the year with many MS musician coming together for their Finale. The last two independent performing arts events take place in the Little Theatre with Grade 5 and 6 Beginners’ Music Recital starting at 5pm on May 21st and Advanced Dance solos starting at 3.15pm on the 24th of May. For the last Fine Arts exhibition of the year, come visit the Fine Arts Gallery any time from 3pm on April 23rd, which is the official opening and also a good chance to chat with any of the artists. This exhibition will hang throughout graduation until June 3rd. For those invited to the HS Honor Society Ceremony, you will be treated to performances by the new Tri-M inductees while Grade 8 Moving On Day will involve a variety performance put together by HS Introductory Arts classes. Here are the posters for the next two Arts events:
