We are extremely proud to share that the FIS presented an IGCSE and IB music concert, earlier this month.
It was a diverse program, ranging from classical to rock to ragtime to student compositions. Highlights included an impressive showcase of variety and quality by our Grade 12 IB Music student, clarinetist Erik Hartzo and the first appearance of our new High School Choir at a FIS music concert.
We would like to acknowledge and applaud the dedication, commitment, and hard work of the student performers.
