This past Saturday, September 23rd, 2023, the Wells International School students from Chonburi and On Nut participated in an intensive cross-campus choir boot camp. Thirty middle and high school choir students joined together at the Wells International Chonburi campus to practice new songs for upcoming performances.
The students from the On Nut and Chonburi campuses had a jam-packed day filled with voice practices to develop their breathing, use of their diaphragm, and posture. After the warm-ups and practice, the students divided into groups to practice the different parts of a choir, such as soprano, alto, and tenors. The choir directors broke the students into groups to practice the melodies and harmonies before joining up to rehearse as a whole group.
However, the students had some time to relax and play games after lunch. They played team sports such as pickleball and badminton. The students who preferred to watch and cheer were lounging comfortably on the beanbags. After relaxing and socializing, the students and teachers assembled in the new auditorium for a grand finale practice. They were the first group to stand on the brand new stage and sing together.
The choir boot camp was a special day where our students from the two campuses could connect and share ideas through their passions of music and singing. The highlight of the day was to see how our students made new friends and learned valuable lessons to develop their singing skills. We hope to have many more inter-school collaborations such as this.
