  2. 2. Newsletter Issue 26|2 Dear Parents, This morning, the tuneful MP 2 and 3 choir and the very talented TX orchestra performed for children, parents and teachers during assembly. This is one of their rehearsals for the Friends Around the World spring concert which will take place on Wednesday 1st April. The children were amazing in our school hall and judging by our sneak preview this morning, I can certainly say that they are ready for taking the stage in the Ben Thanh Theatre, alongside children from An Phu Primary and Secondary schools. The annual spring concert is always our BIS music spectacular of the year so I hope to see many of your there next week. From the Head Teacher– Ms Sue Hill Finer Diners Congratulations to Quynh An, Naomi, Yegor and Albane (Year 3), and Swastik and Hai Anh (Year 4). BIS Spring Concert 2015: ‘Friends Around The World’ As most of you will know, children who are in the TX orchestra, Milepost 2&3 choir, chamber choir and string group will be performing at the BIS Spring Concert on Wednesday 1st April in the Ben Thanh Theatre at 6pm. There are still tickets available from the office if you would like to come. During the day on the 1st April, the children will attend the theatre for a full-day rehearsal. If your child is performing, please make sure they have a water bottle, a book and musical instrument with them. The children will be given a packed lunch on this day. The school will be providing buses to and from the theatre for the rehearsal, but will not be providing buses for the evening performance. The children must be at the theatre in the evening by 5:45pm at the latest. Children must be wearing their TX orchestra or TX choir t-shirt, school shorts/skirt and black shoes.
