To celebrate Chinese New Year and Valentine, Ivy School conducted a musical party in Pakuwon Trade Center. It could have been that many of us were still flying high from the Christmas party that occurred the month before. Though, the energy that came brought up the idea of running this event. It was held in Friday, February 12th, 2016 at 01.00 p.m.
The first performance from Grade 1-3 ‘Ivy Voice’ Choir started to draw people attention at 13.15. It was so nice that so many people that milling about stopped by and enjoyed the performance. Ms. Sherly, the principal of Ivy Elementary School led the prayer a minute after. Now, the celebration is officially started. The next performance was the girls from Grade 4, singing Mandarin song, Huan Ai. As the first performer singing in Mandarin this group has succeeded to draw people’s attention to come and getting closer to the stage.
The following one is a dance performance from Grade 6 which showing off a skillful dancer-boy; Dony Samuel Pehatta, followed by a group of dancers led by Hsie Aiko Sachi. It was such a cool show. A surprising moment appeared when Ms. Feli and Mr. Yoshua walked up to the stage and sang a duet song, A Whole New World.
The crowd went bigger when Edward from Grade 4 played a piano solo from the legendary Paganini’s piece of music. A group of dancers from grade 5 was up to perform Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean song in a very nice dancing. They drew a lot of crowd’s attention. Grade 3 came a few minutes after. They sang and presented dancing in such a fab. The girls went up first and then the boys followed after it.
The well-known music duo, Sophie-Jessica, toned up the party. Sophie played up her violin while Jessica completed it with the piano playing. They both were playing the collaboration in two songs, Blue Danube and Gong Xi. A performance from Grade 2 was another allure. A cool fan dance of Grade 1 surprised the visitors. Since it was their first performance when entering the elementary, that must be a great deal of impression for all of them. The last performance was a choir by Ivy Voice from the students in Middle School. They sang Can You Feel The Love Tonight in such an impressive way.
The event closed after the announcement of Reading Challenge won by Michael Edward Tulus from Grade 5, and Middle School Cooking Competition which brought up the group of Grade 8 as the winner. It was such a great show and it’s really worth visiting.
