Congratulations to all students who competed and performed at the COBIS Music Festival 2019.  

The COBIS Music Festival 2019 took place between 3-5 May at The British School in The Netherlands. It was a wonderful weekend of workshops, competitions, performances and fun social activities.

This event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate talented COBIS students from around the world through a full musical programme, providing them with the opportunity to meet and socialise with students from other countries.

The event began on the Friday evening, with a wonderful warm-up workshop led by renowned conductor, Dominic Peckham. The competitions then took place throughout the day on Saturday. On Saturday evening, students were invited to a fun evening BBQ by Scheveningen Beach. 

On Sunday, students got the opportunity to work with some amazing workshop leaders:

At the closing concert on Sunday, students performed the pieces they had learnt during the choral, orchestral and band workshops. It was a very impressive show, which demonstrated the high level of musical talent across COBIS Schools. 

A huge thank you to our event hosts at The British School in The Netherlands. Thank you also to everyone else involved in the success of the competition - students, teachers, parents, workshop leaders and judges.
