This year’s rendition of the Annual BHJS Music and Dance Night marked a successful and fruitful end for our performance arts teams. More than 200 students from our Dance Team, School Choir and School Orchestra took part in the rehearsals, and preparation work as well as in the much-anticipated concert. Similar to previous years, the concert featured numerous members of the choirs and orchestras, which played a broad and colourful repertoire. Pieces ranging from local composer Dr. Steve Ho’s “In One Accord” to “Eric Whitacre’s Alleluia” were sung, showcasing the musical talent and skills of different choirs. Members of the Dance Team also gave their best performance with their duo, trio and group dances. 
 
Apart from the traditional Music and Dance Night Performances, new elements were also added to this year’s program. Guest musicians from Wa Ying College’s Wind Band, Joint-School Orchestra and Choir also entertained us during the finale along with a new feature - a four-movement excerpt of Prokofiev’s cantata from Alexander Nevsky. This brought the concert to an exciting and thrilling end.

Musical

On the night of 15th July 2017, the grand celebration of our school’s 55th anniversary came to a rousing conclusion with a dazzling display of light, sound and colour – a large-scale musical production of the well known musical “The Sound of Music” by Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. A combined effort of over 100 students and teachers created a lively theatrical treat with elements of playfulness, adversity, faith and love.

“In union, there is strength.”
Completely new to the world of large-scale musicals, our teachers found the music arrangement and stage management work fun and challenging. They also had strong determination and belief in our students’ ability in tackling the problems they faced.

Mr. Alston Ng
"It is possibly one of the biggest achievements of my life up till now. Knowing that musicals consist of drama performance as well as orchestral accompaniment, coherence between the two and the cooperation among all parties was crucial. Different parties trying their best to work things out with mutual trust and understanding was not as easy a task as it may sound. There were times when things didn’t go very well, however, it was a lesson for me to learn. It was a blessing that all parties were able to work as a team and deliver an extraordinary musical. It gave me great confidence and encouragement for my future endeavours. "
