Tri-M Jazz Night: Get your Tickets now!


Get your tickets now for the 9th annual Tri-M Jazz Night.  This year, the Tri-M council has decided to try a different format for the student organised event.  Due to the proximity to IB exams, the celebration of jazz music and ISM student talent is slightly earlier than other years, with a 3pm start time.  The program features small ensembles instead of full class groups.  Also, instead of a full buffet meal, we will enjoy a catered dessert buffet.

The program kicks off at 3 pm in the Little Theater.  Tickets are available at the ISM Cashier or at the door starting from 3:00pm.

It’s going to be an exciting showcase of student talent, as always!  We hope to see you there.

 

K-12 Dancers Celebrate Music Icons


Last Saturday afternoon, ISM’s dancers performed to a full house of dance fans.  The AFAC and HS dance classes all performed dances choreographed to songs they selected from musicians they considered to be Musical Icons.  All dancers from our grades 1 through 12 thrilled the audience with ballet, tap, jazz and contemporary numbers.  If you attended the recital, please watch the slide show below to re-visit some of your favourite moments.  If you were not able to attend the recital, watch the slide show below to see what you missed!  🙂   Photos courtesy of Eugene Perez.

Legends of Jazz in the FAT November 16 at 5:30 pm


Our 2011-12 concert season officially kicks off on Wednesday,  November 16th with the HS Legends of Jazz Concert showcasing the talents of all of our Band, Strings and Choral students.  Groups performing will be:

Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Orchestra, Concert Choir, Show Choir and of course, Jazz Band.

It will be a wonderful evening of great works from the likes of Irving Berlin, Jeff Jarvis,  D. Bruebeck and Duke Ellington.

As I am writing this post, I realise that my toes are tapping and I am  swaying a little in my office chair.  The reason –  Concert Band is on the other side of my office wall right now rehearsing “When the Saints Go Marching In.”  They sound fantastic.  They have now moved on to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.”   You really can not miss this concert.

See you in the FAT on November 16th at 5:30 pm.

 

 

IASAS Jazz and Dance Exchange


20 ISM Dancers and Jazz Musicians will be participating in the IASAS Jazz/Dance exchange this weekend. JIS has arranged to stream the final concert live over the internet.  You can see your friends/sons/daughters perform from the comfort of your own home (and it is a lot less expensive than a ticket to see the concert live!). I cannot guarantee the quality of the stream or the broadcast, but we do appreciate the effort that JIS has made for those of us staying at home this weekend.

From JIS:
The concert will start at 7:00PM Sunday Jakarta time (8:00 pm Manila time)
Jazz band, and one tune combined jazz / dance. Should last about an hour

Dancers will be performing one number with the Jazz musicians, but nothing on their own.
