NAE – Juilliard Trio Composition Project – Workshop & Performance
Congratulations to our MS String Orchestra students under the direction of Mr. Tim Hainsworth, who welcomed a Juilliard Trio to WPS last week to perform a piece of music they composed in four movements called IRMA. The piece tells the story of the hurricane which swept through the Caribbean and through Florida. They were one of five music ensembles out of the whole of Nord Anglia chosen to work with Juilliard violist and composition specialist, Jessica Meyer. They enjoyed working through the extensive composition process with her through Skype workshop sessions over a four-month period, and it was simply thrilling to see and hear their creation brought to life by such high caliber musicians as the Juilliard Trio. Mr. Hainsworth is confident they will remember the moment their music came alive in such a magnificent manner for the rest of their lives.

On Friday, April 20th, four of our WPS Dance Team members attended a clinic put on by the UCF Dance Team. Along with dancers from other local high school dance teams, they worked on jumps, turns, and other skills and learned two different dances. Dancers in attendance were Maya Tharoo, P.J. Brown, Lauren Arnold-Wahler, and Silvana Toledo. It was a great way to get more dance experience and see what college dance team is like!
