AMIS Asian MS Honor Orchestra Festival in Beijing

Matthew and SandyStudents from 23 international schools joined together last week to form the AMIS Asian MS Honor Orchestra and Honor Mixed Choir under the direction of Jonathan Mann (orchestra) and Darlene Elkins (choir). The festival was hosted by the International School of Beijing. SIS students Sandy Park and Matthew Leslie earned positions in the orchestra as a violist and a cellist. The orchestra performed works by Bartok, Finzi, Wang, Corigliano, and Jenkins. The finale of the concert was a work commissioned by AMIS featuring the orchestra and choir together called “I Choose the Light.”
