Last Night of the PROMS

On 4 March, it was an absolute pleasure for Harrow Beijing to host the Beijing International Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Maria Nauen, for 'Last Night of The Proms'. This was an unforgettable evening of music and reconnection of our Harrow community.

Mrs Rachel Dent, Head of Harrow Beijing

'Harrow Beijing is a very special community and parents are a key component of that community. Throughout the last 4 years, you have supported us in so many ways that we genuinely hope this concert goes some way to expressing our gratitude and appreciation. My thanks to the Beijing International Chamber Orchestra's wonderful performance. Thanks also to Mrs Danielle Byrne and the many staff and students who have worked behind the scenes to make the night possible.'

Dr Ahmed Hussain, Chief Education Officer of AISL

'On behalf of AISL Harrow, I would like to say thank you to the parents of Harrow Beijing for their commitment, togetherness, and resilience to stick with this school community. In the past few days here at Harrow Beijing, I've seen our students whose English is way beyond those in similar schools. Their reading and writing skills are equivalent to native level English students.  It's together that we achieve success for the children. I'm fully confident we will help your children achieve the very best they possibly can.'

The evening program included a variety of popular classical film scores such as 'Moon River', 'The Lion King', 'Mission Impossible' and more.

We were proud to see not only Harrow Beijing staff play with the orchestra, but seven talented students play alongside them in this celebration of a new chapter of welcoming audiences back to campus.

The Prefect team also represented the student body, as well as our music ambassadors, who played a range of music at the champagne reception. These students showed the true spirit of our core values of fellowship and courage.
