New Global Orchestra announced by Regents International School Pattaya


Regents International School Pattaya is thrilled to announce that a group of the finest young musicians and singers from the school will be performing in Nord Anglia Education’s first ever Global Orchestra this summer – in New York!  This exciting opportunity is being funded by Nord Anglia Education – the family of 31 international schools of which Regents is a member – as part of its commitment to helping students develop the skills and talents to achieve their ambitions.

Whether they have the voice of an angel or play like a concert pianist, Regents students of all ages are being invited to showcase their talents and audition for the ensemble.  The Global Orchestra will consist of a choir, soloists and instrumental ensembles who will join together in New York this June for an exclusive week long residential programme culminating in a public performance to celebrate their musical accomplishments.

Regents students will soon be auditioning to join the Global Orchestra in New York.Regents students will soon be auditioning to join the Global Orchestra in New York.

Students will participate in inspiring workshops and practice sessions guided by experts, watch performances by elite artists and be immersed in the city’s arts culture to nurture their talent.  Students will also develop their creativity, confidence and collaboration skills as they work with and learn from each other.

Auditions for both primary- and secondary age students will take place in all 31 Nord Anglia Education schools around the world in March.  The top performers from each school will be invited to share a recorded audition with a global judging panel who will select three young musicians and singers from each school to join the 93 student international ensemble.

Principal of Regents International School Pattaya, Iain Blaikie expressed his delight at the initiative: “I believe passionately in the power of the performing arts to inspire young people and the Global Orchestra will be an opportunity of a lifetime for three talented students at our school.  One of this school’s most distinctive features is its unbendable commitment to helping students to set their sights high – the Global Orchestra is just one example of how we will be using our world-wide connections to reinforce that aspiration. Good luck to every one of our students taking part!”
