Music Festivals for 2019-2020: Please respond by 3 May, 2019 

As our program continues to grow every year, we are looking at opportunities for next year and would like to get a sense of who might be interested in joining different trips. In order to run a trip, we need at least 10 students. Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about any of the trips below. Each trip to Bangkok will cost parents approximately 10,000 Baht per student. The fee for the AMIS festivals will be considerably more expensive and are highly competitive. The exception to external auditions is the AMIS Asian Middle School Honor Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs, in which we can bring six students.
