Film and Media
Each section of the school puts on a musical performance and throughout the year there are community events such as WISStival, Sundowner, and International Day which give students the opportunity to showcase their musical talents. Our students with a deep interest in instrumentals have the opportunity to work with a team of international freelance music teachers on an individual basis during the school day through our Instrumental Program. The Western International School of Shanghai also hosts musical performances each year from visitors from all over the world to inspire and entertain our students, and show them the endless possibilities in the field of music. Past visitors have included the Harvard a capella group (Din & Tonics), Andy Summers (Guitarist from “The Police”), and John Altman (American Composer and Editor).
