The Australian International School (AIS) presented a benefit concert on Nov 17 at the Church of the Risen Christ in aid of the Assisi Hospice.
A total of $5,330 was raised over two weekends.
The school’s students and teachers played an eclectic array of music consisting Christmas and inspirational music for children’s choir, recorder ensemble, chamber choir, solo violin, solo vocal, string ensemble and orchestra.
This is the second year that the school has hosted this concert in the same venue and it intends to continue championing the hospice as it is in line with the school’s ethos of promoting civic mindedness and caring for the less fortunate.
The entire music department was represented; every music teacher was present who either performed with the students or helped with the logistical planning of the event.
The concert was organised by Dr Aloysius Leong, head of string music at AIS and aided by Mr Simon Hughes, head of the music department along with Ms Annette Mckerrow, director of instrumental music.
