Concerts & Events
The ICS Performing Arts calendar includes several opportunities for students in extra-curricular music ensembles to perform. These opportunities include:
- Winter Concert: a large concert held in the ICS Main Hall in December.
- Spring Concert: a large concert held in the ICS Main Hall in May.
Soloists and small groups can also audition to perform in the above events. Students can sign up for these concerts the month before they take place.
In addition, we are pleased to work closely with our local community to participate in the:
- Zumikon Mehrgenerationen Concert: organised by the Zumikon Musikschule, in late November. Held in the Evangelisch-Reformierte Kirche Zumikon.
Held three times a year in the Primary Hall, the ArtsAlive! events are small, informal concerts that provide a supportive and friendly environment in which Primary and Secondary students can share their musical, dramatic and/or dance talents with the ICS community. No audition is required for ArtsAlive! Students who perform at these events often go on to audition for the larger Winter and/or Spring concerts. Students can sign up for ArtsAlive! concerts the month before they take place.
IB DP Music Recitals
Held twice a year in the Primary Hall, these small concerts showcase the solo and group performance work of Grade 11 and 12 Diploma Music students.
ICS is a member of the Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS). Each year, we plan to attend several of the music festivals run by AMIS including:
- AMIS Solo & Ensemble Festival
- AMIS Middle School Festivals (by audition), including: Mixed Choir, Boys’ Choir, Girls’ Choir
- AMIS High School Festivals (by audition), including: Mixed Choir, Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir, Orchestra, Band.
