Sign up for Music Ensembles & AMIS Music Festival

2017 - 2018

The following extra-curricular Music ensembles will run during the 2017-2018 school year. Before you sign your child up, please check that your child’s choices do not clash with any other commitment for that day/time. Should your child have an ICS sports practice that clashes with a music ensemble rehearsal day, please indicate, as we can work with the ICS Athletics Director to find a flexible solution, ie. attend sport some weeks/music some weeks.
