Music brings us all together
On December 11th and 12th, our students presented a delightful Winter Concert bringing joy and happiness to the audience filled with amazed parents. It was excellent to see our students express themselves creatively through music!
This Winter Concert belongs to every student of WES. By combining the musical skills taught in the music program and the passions of everyone together, the Music Department organized a concert that brought laughter and cheerfulness to all teachers and parents. Every student had the opportunity to perform on the stage.
Look at the little ones of Early Years in their full school uniform, how cute they are! Performing at such a young age, they expressed their talents and it was already fun just watching them standing on the stage. Their performance Snowflakes was the the warm sunlight in this cold winter.
“I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun……” Wasn’t this beautiful voice the light, match and sun for us in the cold winter night? The G6 to G10 presented a popular song Love Runs Outto the audience, mixing their delightful singing with various instruments like ukulele, piano and guitar in a fantastic way.
“I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun……”这天籁般的歌声不正是冬夜里的“光、火源与暖阳”吗？六至十年级的同学们合体带来了一首流行歌曲《Love Runs Out》，动听、激昂的演唱与尤克里里、钢琴、架子鼓、吉他等各式乐器完美融合在一起，展现出玮希中学生们积极向上、活力十足的风貌！
The 2018 Winter Concert featured the newest group to the school – the WES Choir. The audience was impressed with the talents and efforts shown by the Choir! It was a lovely evening that provided an insight to the artistic talent that our students have. They performed four Christmas songs, A Song of Peace, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Winter Lullaby and Jingle Bells, painting a beautiful ending to the event.
What would life be like without music? Life will never be the same… Music education is an indispensable part of the school. It greatly enhances students understanding and achievement in other subjects. it also creates a lot of social benefits for students. Students who participate in the arts are often more cooperative, have more self-confidence, and are better able to express themselves. Ancient Greek philosopher and teacher Plato said it best: “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to imagination, and life to everything.” Music enriches our lives and shapes our minds.
没有音乐，多彩生活将变成黑白世界。音乐教育是学校教育中不可或缺的一部分。音乐学习不仅有助于孩子理解和学习其他科目，而且为情感和社交方面的成长创造了有利条件。参与艺术活动的学生们往往会更自信，更具有团结协作精神，更善于表达自己。古希腊哲学家柏拉图说过：音乐予宇宙以灵魂， 予心以翅膀， 让想象飞翔， 哀而有致，万物得生。音乐给孩子们带来快乐，也培养了许多美好而温润的心灵。
The students were excited to be a part of this amazing event which on the other hand enabled their parents to know the other side of their children on the stage. Chinese philosopher Confucius once stated, “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without”. Let’s enjoy the music in our lives and look forward to a better show in 2019!
节日快乐 Merry Christmas
