The members of Rock Club, a new after-school activity at Tashkent International School, kicked off the new lunch-time Music Tradition on Thursday, January 17 with a 20-minute set of electric improv, rock ‘n’ roll and smokin’ guitar licks. Three of the Rock Club members were able to participate – teacher George Scorgie and students Finn and Mac.
The new Music Tradition was launched by secondary music teacher Patrick David and the TIS Co-Curricular Council. The weekly event is really an opportunity for students to showcase their musical talents for their peers. Each Thursday at 1:30 p.m., the last half of the secondary lunch period, brave musicians can take center stage and provide live entertainment by singing, playing an instrument or doing both. Students will need to bring their own instruments; no other equipment will be provided.
The weekly Music Tradition performances will be held outside the school kitchen every Thursday beginning at 1:30 p.m. When lunch is held in the MPR due to inclement weather, performances will also be indoors. Students can sign up for a time-slot on the form outside Mr. David’s classroom. More than one student or group can perform per day.
