QSNCC – The Wells International School Performing Arts Department put on a spectacular show at the Thailand International Education Exposition 2009 held at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center this past Saturday.
Once again the high caliber of Wells students’ performing arts talent was on display for all to see as members of the Middle School and High School Choirs, along with a selection of dancers, performed a 30 minute show at the Thailand International Education Exposition at the Queen Sirikit Convention Center. The group of approximately 60 students in grades 6 through 12 wowed the audience of parents and visitors to the exposition with a half-hour long song & dance performance. Also highlighted was the secondary school Thai Department, with students performing a traditional Thai dance complete with the accompaniment by Thai instrumentalists.
The show started off with the song “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent, a song which asks us to think about the different ways we can count the time that passes in a year. Students then went on to reflect about some of the different things they had learned over the year, each connected to a performance. Learning about the importance of appreciating Thailand was followed by a performance of Thai Culture and Dance, and learning the importance of using your imagination and being creative was followed by a performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. The performance took a more serious turn with students reflecting on their fears followed by a selection of high school students singing “Will I Lose My Dignity” and “Finale B” from Rent. The performance ended with students talking about how much they were looking forward to moving on with their lives without anything holding them back and a presentation of “Defying Gravity” from Wicked.
The students did an exceptional job, and all who had the privilege of seeing the performance witnessed a great show. Be sure to not miss the next performance from our choirs at the upcoming Christmas show in December!
