The 2018-19 academic year concert was exceptional and the theme was Both Sides Now. Everyone cooperated to work together and put together an astounding show. There were many different types of performances, including songs, dances, and musicals, all performed by our talented MYP students!

The 6th grade showed us how well they can work together as a band; the 7th grade as well showed us their beautiful voices. The 8th grade created their original murder mystery musical. They had their self-written songs and their own plot along with a few choreographed dances.

The 9th grade, wowed us again, with their singing and dances. The Hindi group of the 9th grade pulled together a splendid dance to express how they have travelled from confusion to clarity.  Mr Andrew brought together a couple of musicians from the MYP and had them perform a few melodies. There were two different groups, The Ascend Ensemble A and The Ascend Ensemble B, divided by their level of playing or singing. The main song ‘Both Sides Now’, was played on the bass guitar by Arjun Mahajan from the 8th and Anya Daftary from the 7th. Together, they sounded magnificent and blew everyone’s minds away.

 

For PE, the 6th grade performed a few asanas from yoga and the 8th grade did a very well-choreographed dance. The last but not the least was the Final Medley put together by Mr Andrew, that contained all the songs sung or played in the concert and all of the grades came together to perform this. To end the show, Ms. Meg gave all the students a warm heartfelt message and the curtains were closed.

Along with every single child, the parents were also thrilled and enjoyed themselves so much. There are so many people who can be held responsible for how well the show went along. There is Mr Andrew alongside all the other teachers and of course, the students. But we always forget to thank the people working behind the scenes, like Mr Nitin and Mr Ramesh. So to conclude, it’s life’s illusions I recall, I really don’t know life at all; BOTH SIDES NOW.
