Music@CIS: The Universal Language of Mankind

Canadian International School of Guangzhou 2021-11-19

It is challenging to truly describe music in a few words. We all know how it makes us feel, and we know what we like when we hear it. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once described music as "the universal language of mankind."

To our CIS musicians, music is much more than something they just listen to or play for fun. Our students have a passionate connection to the music they play. Perhaps it’s because at CIS, music lessons are mandatory from Pre-Kindergarten all the way to High School. With regular music classes, on and off campus performances and our latest guest musician programs, our professional CIS music team aims to cultivate a love of music in every student and furthermore, enhance playing skills and the spirit of teamwork!

Guest Performances: Our Ambassadors for Musical Appreciation

Our Wind Orchestra has grown a lot in the past 2 years. With a strong foundation, we're proud to showcase guest performances and musicians! The purpose of such events is to expose our children to various repertoires and develop a lifelong love of music. 

We welcomed the Brilliant Brass Quintet for a special performance for our Grade 1-12 students this week. 

Guest specialist from Xinghai Conservatory of Music visits CIS Wind Orchestra regularly for instructions.

All I Want for Christmas… is Another Amazing CIS Performance!

Music is truly the key to cultural appreciation, and to developing friendships, confidence and happiness. Our cultural ambassadors of CIS are given a myriad of opportunities to perform. Here are some snapshots of a recent tree lighting ceremony, where our young students rocked the stage with festive melodies!
