On Saturday October 28th, 2017, Shen Wai International School’s Primary (Grade 2 – 3 ) Choir, alongside the Dongguan Sunshine Central Primary School choir, sang with the world-famous Vienna Boys’ Choir from Austria. The Vienna Boys’ Choir were on their 2017 Asia Tour and held their gala concert at the Star Theater of the Dongguan Public Arts Centre.
This marks the second year in which Shen Wai International School (SWIS) has been invited to sing with the Vienna Boys’ Choir. SWIS is the only school in Shenzhen to be afforded this honor.
This year the SWIS Primary Choir sang two songs with the Vienna Boys’ Choir: “Due Pupille Amabili” by W.A. Mozart and “Coming together to sing: Singing for a better future” by Gerald Wirth. The audience was thrilled with the children’s performance and applauded enthusiastically. Afterwards, the SWIS children were able to listen to the heavenly voices of the Vienna Boys’ Choir as the boys performed their tour program. The children will always remember this extraordinary performance.
A heartfelt thank you is extended to the parents, staff and students of Shen Wai International School who worked collaboratively to provide this unforgettable experience for the children. Well done everyone!
