On April 24th, IGCSE and IB students attended a rehearsal with the Solistes Européens Luxembourg (SEL) at the Luxembourg Philharmonie, where they rehearsed the IB Prescribed piece, Danses of Galánta by Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály. The orchestra also rehearsed Johannes Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 as well as Béla Bartók’s Suite No. 2 for orchestra. Students had the opportunity to speak with the Conductor, Christoph König and the General Director of the orchestra, Eugène Prim. Students actively engaged in various discussions about the life of a conductor and orchestral musician, orchestral programming, how orchestras prepare for concerts, score study, as well as many other topics. Students returned later the same day to watch the actual concert and see how the process all comes together. ISL thanks the SEL for providing invaluable opportunities and experiences to our students and their continued support of music education is much appreciated. #authenticlearning
