We were delighted that Elena Tan, one of our Remove IGCSE musicians, was invited to perform at the ABRSM high scores' event in the Black Box in the Mall of Medini onSaturday, 14th January. Elena was extremely well deserving of this opportunity. Having been awarded 142 out of 150 in her Grade 4 singing examination, Elena was the highest achiever in the Johor area. Indeed, she was one of only three pupils who were invited to sing at this event which comprised of some 30 performances in total.
On the night Elena performed superbly. Her rendition of 'The Hills are alive with the Sound of Music', expertly accompanied by our Musician in Residence Mr Monk, would have given even Julie Andrews a run for her money. Elena captivated the audience, demonstrating control and finesse, something which is hard to do when performing to 200 strangers. Elena has now started working towards her Grade 6 Singing examination, and we look forward to hearing how she progresses.
