Garden International School (GIS) was packed for a special night of Music, Art and Drama (MAD).

The evening featured displays of artwork in a gallery-style setting, several drama sketches and performances from across the musical spectrum.

The audience was first given complimentary glasses of wine, then mingled and ate snacks while ambient music was provided by students Peter, Reha, Benjamin, HyoJung, Jun Beom, Anushka, Pauline and Ben B.

At 7.40pm the concert began with the school orchestra performing a piece by Mozart, followed by a dramatic ‘Witches’ sketch from Year 7. The Butterfly Waltz was adroitly performed by Sarah and HyoJung, then came a Year 8 skit called Mad Cows.

Garden’s star singers, Praw, Trisha and Sarah, took to the stage to perform ‘You Can Drive a Person Crazy’ before a performance by the school jazz band. The first half ended with a stellar performance by the school choir of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. After a short break, rock and pop songs filled the hall, including Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer and One Way. Thanks to the Music, Art and Drama departments and everyone else involved in this hugely successful event.

GIS is based in Ban Chang near Pattaya.
