Ready to groove? Check out this music video, featuring students in Dutch Cultural Society classes at ISB and other international schools in Bangkok. Students in the video co-wrote the lyrics with the support of DCS teachers and the visiting theater duo Oogpunt, to welcome new and potential Dutch expats to Thailand.

Choir Performance ภาษาไทย

April 12th, 2019 · No Comments

As the Songkran holiday approaches, enjoy this clip of Thai-language choral performance by ISB’s HS delegates to IASIS Cultural Convention, March 2019.

 

Here, the delegates perform บัวขาว (Bua Khao, or White Lotus) with lyrics by Prince Bhanubandh Yugala, music by Puangroi Apaiwong, and arrangement by Atichai Tragoondet. Singers are (from left) Jillian, Saharat, Andrew, Rhea, Jitpuwapat, Rada, Nevaan, and Leah. 

The Thai speakers in the ensemble coached their classmates and MS/HS choral director Andy Marshall on pronunciation and meaning of the piece. At top is the first page of the score with Mr. Marshall’s annotations.

Enjoy a peaceful Thai New Year.
