YCIS QD Spring Concert
On April 4th, YCIS QD Primary school concert brought the sounds of Spring to our campus. Music has always featured as a large part of Yew Chung’s life. We offer as many musical opportunities as we possibly can. This helps the children to extend their creativity and gain confidence on the stage. Last Thursday’s concert featured an all-Primary star line-up. Our two Year 6 MC’s, Ye Bin Kwon & Si Eun Choi, introduced everyone professionally. The choirs opened and closed the concert and our String players in Years 1-3 were the other large groups to perform. The other performers were solos and duets and ranged from vocal, piano, violin; even a b-boxing performance and a hip-hop dance which was a crowd favourite. Performances ranged from Year 1 right the way through to Yr. 6 pupils. The Co-Principals, Ms. Ma and Mr. O’Connor gave the vote of thanks at the close of the concert. It was a concert to remember and promises that music is alive and well at YCIS-QD.
