MUSICAL students from Seri Mulia Sarjana School (SMSS) and members of the Jerudong International School (JIS) Orchestra were given a rare chance yesterday to gain musical tips from two acclaimed musicians – Pamela and Vasko of the Covent Garden Soloists Orchestra – at the Arts Centre, JIS.
The Covent Garden Soloists Orchestra is in the Sultanate to perform at the 25th Toyota Classic concert held yesterday evening.
This was the first time that orchestra members from the Toyota Classic concert met with students and closely interacted with them.
Paul Edgeler, Head of the Music Department from JIS said, “It’s a great opportunity for the students to learn and receive tips from the orchestra members. The members of Covent Garden Soloists Orchestra were very approachable and friendly.
“We hope the students will be inspired by the professional orchestra members.”
Paul Edgeler also thanked NBT (B) for giving his students the chance.
Marvin Mansueto, Head of Academics Upper Primary Level from Seri Mulia Sarjana School said, “It’s good exposure for the students as this is the first time that they have met real orchestra members.
“I hope that the experience will inspire the students to work hard and become professional musicians in the future.”
