In this chilly winter, SUIS JKEMW community immersed in warmth and love and enjoyed the Winter Music Recital 2021. It is a traditional way at SUIS JKEMW to celebrate the New Year, connect our community and express blessings.
To keep our community safe, the Music Recital was live streamed to parents and family members. After several weeks of rehearsal, our students put on a rich repertoire of performances. Classic orchestral ensembles, dynamic jazz band, dance troupe, choral works and guitar performances all made for a stunning show that celebrated the diversity of talent at SUIS JKEMW.
Oscar Cai from 8MW kicked off the recital with a solo guitar performance.
The dance presented by Dance Troupe perfectly blended modern dance and classical ballet, full of verve and vitality.
由Mr. Hollingsworth指导的爵士乐团将念白、歌声和音乐完美呈现。在酣畅淋漓的律动下，Cindy Fan (7EM)将自己创作的诗歌娓娓道来，那股力量直击人心。
The performance of the Jazz Band led by Mr. Hollingsworth integrated poetry, singing and music. With the dynamic rhythm, Cindy Fan read the poem that she wrote. The power of the show hit everyone's heart.
Then, the audience enjoyed a variety of wonderful performances. They were surprised to see Ms. Bell and Mr. Martindale playing the violin gracefully together with the students. The choir enthralled us with a wide range of repertoire and was a pleasure to listen to. And the "Ta Shan He" brought by the Guitar Ensemble was so delighting that the audience couldn't stop singing together with the music. It’s hard to believe they are just guitar beginners.
Finally, the show came to an end in the joyous singing SUIS SPIRIT SONG. It was made by Mr. Hollingsworth and his Songwriting ECA students. The song has a lively melody and a brisk rhythm and expresses the students' understanding of the 4C ethos of SUIS JKEMW, and their pride to be a member of the SUIS community.
SUIS JKEMW Winter Music Recital 2021 was a huge success because of the dedication of our performers and involvement of our teachers who helped in organizing the event. The Music Department went above and beyond to make the musical recital a wonderful culminating show. Thank you, Ms. Barton! Thank you, Mr. Hollingsworth! And we want to thank all our students and staff for creating such a wonderful event!
