Notes from Primary Music – 04.12.2020

What a HUGE week for Music!!!

This week was a fantastic week for the Primary Music Department!

Term 1 Music ECA Drop In

On Tuesday 24th November, then last Monday 30th November and Tuesday 1st December we hosted the Term 1 Music ECA Drop In sessions. This allowed close family members and teachers the opportunity to hear what our young stars have been working on. Our ensembles included the Beginner Guitar Club,  Primary Orchestra, KS2 Primary Choir, Percussion Ensemble,  KS1 Piccolo Choir, Rock and Rollers and the Recorder Ensemble.

All in all, our Music ECA students performed so well and their music was met quite enthusiastically by their audience. Congratulations to all performers and their ECA leaders

Sawasdee Woodwind Quintet concerts for Bangkok Prep!

Then, when we thought our music department could not get more exciting, all of our students in Years 1 – 6 had the immense privilege of hearing a series of live performances by the finest woodwind ensemble in Thailand: the Sawasdee Woodwind Quintet. Students enjoyed the ensemble’s performance of Prokofiev’s masterpiece Peter and the Wolf, which tells the famous fable through music and introduces the unique sounds of instruments such as the Flute, Horn, Clarinet, Bassoon and Oboe. Each of these instruments represent a character in the story. A few lucky students then had the chance to ask the Quintet some questions. What a great morning we had today!

Thai and Music Department Collaboration

Today in all KS1, LKS2 and UKS2 assemblies, it was delightful to see the Thai and Music Departments collaborate so beautifully to celebrate this year’s Father’s Day. 

The Thai department presented a beautiful lecture about King Rama IX, the father of the nation, and how he personified the best qualities of being a father such as leadership, love, kindness and compassion. Then, in honour of King Rama IX’s musicianship, they presented a performance of his composition Pohn Pee Mai, featuring Jab from 6KM playing Violin, Bing from 6KP playing piano, and teachers Kru Joe, Kru Tare and Ms Morgan singing the song together. This surely was the finest example of how music brings people together – students and staff, Thai and Western staff – to commemorate such a beautiful day and an incredible man.
