Over fifty music students, aged between 14 and 18 years, from ACS Cobham International School took part in the school�s annual Candlelit Concert, performing a wide variety of music for parents and staff.

The concert involved all High School (HS) students including the HS Singers, Jazz Band and Chamber Ensemble performing a variety of musical pieces. The Candlelit Concert also provided a great opportunity for International Baccalaureate Music students to showcase the work they have been preparing throughout the year.

Held in the school�s Cafetorium, the concert was organised by Zoe Lees, Head of Music at ACS Cobham, with parents invited to bring their own food and drink, creating a welcoming and picnic-style setting for the evening.

Mrs Lees commented:

�The idea for the concert first came about 11 years ago, as a way of encouraging parents to attend and support the school and its students. The Candlelit Concert is my favourite event of the year as I love the relaxed setting. All the students performed exceptionally well � they�d been preparing for this since August, so I�m really proud of them.�

Next year�s Candlelit concert will be held in the school�s new auditorium, which will seat 500 people, part of its new Performing Arts Centre.

Darryl Nel has recently been appointed the Head of Performing Arts at ACS Cobham and commented:

�The Candlelit Concert is always one of the school�s most highly-anticipated events. I�m really pleased with all the effort the students have put in to the show and they should all be incredibly proud of their hard work.�
