On Tuesday, December 6, students from grades 6-12 offered an Orchestra demonstration for parents and students in grades 1-4 in Qatar Academy’s Auditorium. It was a highly successful event involving:
 
42 instrumentalists
15 different kinds of instruments
3 instrumental ensembles
Two student soloists
Mature music including: Beethoven, 5/4 Jazz and popular music arranged for orchestra!
Nearly a semester of work from students and gracious cooperation from CT/Advisory teachers and Grade Level managers!
 
Instrumentalists practiced together twice per week since September in order to hone their skills and to develop the program. Seeing their confident, smiling faces on stage was fantastic! The audience was adept at identifying IB Learner Profile attributes required for success as a CTO (Orchestra) student, and the CTO students demonstrated the very best of Qatar Academy Doha. It fulfills the school’s mission by encouraging students to be active, contributing members of society and serving the needs, interests and learning styles of each student. This single event positively impacted students from 10 separate grades!
 
Special thanks to Mr. William Ball, Mr. Dan Pardy, Mr. Ansar Mohamed, Ms. Raquel Martinez, Ms. Thuraya Abu Elkhair, Mr. Paul Neary, Dr. Howard Menand, and Mr. Cory Carson for their support!
