Students on stage: 84 Students in ensemble: 53 Choral & Instrumental works: 15 Onsite Audiences: 550 對于本次圣誕音樂會 音樂中心主任Nikita博士表示： This year’s Holiday Concert Series features the most extensive repertoire in the school’s history. The concert contains soloists (both instrumentalists and singers,) two choirs, and an instrumental ensemble, as NAIS students – after two months of preparation – showcase their musicianship on the stage. Performances include classical, popular, and traditional works by composers all over the globe. From classical duets to popular band compositions, the music – along with students’ enthusiasm and artistic abilities – harvests a perfect holiday environment filled with joy and entertainment. These concert series allow the audience members to hear and appreciate the abundance of talent at NAIS. Concomitantly, the Christmas tree on the stage and the holiday spirit at the theater – the one which will transform itself into the Phantom’s soul in approximately five months – lets the listeners engulf themselves in two hours of magical performances. Some of the highlights include student conductors leading the school’s choir and ensemble, merging Eastern and Western instruments, students’ capabilities to combine electronic sounds with instrumental, and unique arrangements of various music literature designed explicitly for the NAIS ensemble. The innovatory nature of NAIS concerts does not stop here, as students not only lead the entire show through production and performance but likewise engage with non-performative components, including program notes creation, program construction, stage crew management, and lights/sound control.
