Professional musicians from Orchestre de Chambre de Luxembourg (OCL) will be performing together for the first time with students from the ISL on Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February 2018.

Members of the OCL and twelve high-school (IGCSE and IB) students from ISL will be performing a children's musical fable called "The Magicians Shoes" by American composer and pianist, Richard Lane. The piece will be conducted by the renowned German conductor, Kiril Stankow. 

The Magicians Shoes is a story about the grass not always being 'greener on the other side' with the main character (a pair of shoes!) learning to appreciate what he has. It's entertaining for adults and children alike. During the captivating show, there will also be puppetry, theatre and dance.

This collaborative interdisciplinary project began because teachers at ISL and musicians at OCL wanted to create an educational partnership that would enable students to have an authentic learning experience.

There will also be musical performances by other students from ISL and St George's International School, including pieces for piano, flute, voice, clarinet and a rock band as well as two student-composed world-premieres!

The free performances will take place at the ISL Upper School Auditorium, on Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February 2018 from 19:00 to 20:00.
