Concert Choir Performs at Lincoln Center in NYC

In an extraordinary opportunity, NIST International School’s Concert Choir took to the stage in New York City on Monday, 13 April when Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) presented Ring of Fire: The Music of Southeast Asia at Avery Fisher Hall in the Lincoln Center. Featuring both traditional and contemporary pieces, the event included performers from NIST and other students from the region. The New York audience was thus treated not only to choral pieces from Thailand, but also China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore.

The entire concert was directed Thailand’s own Anthony Giles, Director of HS Choirs and HS Fine and Performing Arts Chair at International School Bangkok. Adding an international flair, our choir, led by Mr. Nicholas Trebesh, were joined by their peers from International School Bangkok Chamber Choir, The British School Jakarta, International School of Guangzhou, Mark Morris High School Vivace Treble Choir and Advanced Mixed Ensemble.

Beyond their performance, the NIST students were also able to experience the creative side of New York. Staying in the arts district of Manhattan, they explored art and music shops, attended several Broadway performances, and visited several museums and landmarks. By offering them these unique opportunities, we aim to shift learning beyond the classroom and ground it in real-life experiences. Through their dedication and hard work, the NIST Concert Choir earned the results: their own moment to shine on the stage.

The IB Mission at NIST Internation School in Bangkok

The IB Mission

The International Baccalaureate does not represent only a curriculum, but also a mission to transform the world through education by fostering thoughtful, principled learners.

An Education that Inspires & Enriches

Though we have cultivated a reputation for excellence in academics, we believe education is inextricably tied to wellbeing, character and action. Through learning comes joy.

A Lasting Impact, Service Learning at NIST International School in Bangkok

A Lasting Impact

Many of our alumni go on to work for NGOs and non-profits, become activists and reformers, and even create their own social enterprises.

Transforming Lives through Service

We believe service must be woven into the fabric of our learning, not as single projects or donations, but rather as the core means through which we translate learning into sustained action.
