On Tuesday, March 22nd, the Espace Léo Ferré in Monaco burst to life with the performance “Reach for the Stars” for the 2022 ISM Arts Festival.
53 performers from Year 2 to Year 13 graced the stage with performances ranging from vocal solos, duets, and group performances to dancing and a jazz band. Musical styles included pop, musical theatre, and opera, with an eclectic mix that truly showcased the wide range of talents of our students. Here are a few impressions from our performers and audience members:
“The arts festival was very fun and a little stressful…. But I really enjoyed it! I am looking forward to next year!!!!!!” Federica, performer
“I was one of the proud parents in the audience last night.” Audience member
“This is the most professional show I have seen. You won’t see a show of this level in any other Monaco school.” Audience member & industry professional
“This Arts Festival was one of the best live performances I have ever seen.” Student audience member
Many thanks to all members of the Arts Festival Committee for directing and producing the show and to all individuals who helped with the choreography and preparing individual pieces. Thanks too to our PTA for its continual support and to all ISM parents, teachers and Year 12 student helpers who assisted backstage during the day and on the night of the show.
