The Berlin Cosmopolitan School opens this year’s concert season with a Casual Concert at Assembly Hall on Wednesday, October 19, at 5 pm. On stage are the Mixed Ensembles from grade 7, 8, 9 and 10 framing Lucille on the piano, and our IB Higher Level music students, Alexander on clarinet and piano, and Sung-Eun on cello.
Mr. Salsbury and the first grade violin class completed a special visit to the Seniorenheim Stephanus on Monday June 27. The class was delighted to share some of their favorite performance pieces with the residents who were a very welcoming audience.
The violin students were especially surprised when the seniors joined in singing “Fuchs, du hast die Gans gestohlen“ and even asked if the group could play it a second time. A great event for all involved.
The second semester Cross Campus Casual Concert is taking place tomorrow, Thursday, June 30 at 11:15 in the Campus Invalidenstraße assembly hall.
Many students from Campus Rückerstraße will be performing for their younger counterparts – some are actually siblings! This concert includes a special joint performance of the Beetles and parents.
Just before the end of this school year some of our Primary classes participated in a series of music workshops led by professional musicians introducing classical masterpieces under three picturesque topics perfectly designed for a child’s phantasy: “Dances of the World”, “A Journey through Nature & Fairy Tales” and “Animal Classics”. The workshops were sponsored by Internationale Stiftung zur Förderung von Kultur und Zivilisation (Munich).
The idea behind the project is to inspire children to play an instrument.
Therefore those participants who signed up for instrument lessons will receive three free trial lessons on any instrument they choose. What a treat!
