Prince of Wales Island International School, Penang, Malaysia

POWIIS Cultural Exchange Programme 2017

Over the weekend, five of our students took part in the POWIIS Cultural Exchange Programme, in collaboration with the Kids’ Philharmonic Orchestra, in Singapore. The students, Gabriel de Leon, Carolynn Git, Tyler Chan, Edmund Tan, and Yeoh Bing Xuan, participated in workshops, and rehearsed with the conductor, the orchestra, and the string tutors.

They were then given the opportunity to perform ‘Peter and the Wolf’ alongside the Kids’ Philharmonic Orchestra at the Esplanade Concert Hall – one of the world’s best concert halls. Gabriel reprised his role as narrator, whilst Carolynn, Tyler, Edmund, and Bing Xuan were the violinists for the show.

The students also had the chance to explore the island, and visited numerous places of interest. It was, overall, an enjoyable experience.
