Students from Year 4 (Grade 3) are welcome to join our school choir that meets weekly during lunch to practise and hone their singing technique.
For students in Year 5 (Grade 4) and up there is also the option to join our touring choir, The Empire State of Sound. They rehearse weekly after school and perform at local community events throughout the year, culminating with a week long concert tour during the Easter break. Past trips have taken our choir to Los Angeles, Nashville, Tennessee, and New Orleans.
BIS-NY’s music department is world class! Our daughter was taught to play the cornet beautifully; she has also thoroughly enjoyed singing in the choir. We feel her participation in this has been a large factor in her overall growth in confidence as a pupil in the past 18 months.
