Eighteen talented individuals from Dwight School Seoul have been given the honor to perform on stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 31st. Under the theme “Dwight Showtime! A Celebration of Music From Stage and Screen,” students from grades 8 to 12 will join their peers from Dwight sister schools in New York, London and Shanghai for an evening of incredible music.
Since its establishment in New York City in 1872, the Dwight School has created a global network, building campuses overseas with the newest addition Dwight School Seoul opening its doors in 2012. The Dwight School in New York was the first school in the United States to offer a comprehensive IB curriculum from preschool to grade 12.
Accordingly, Dwight School Seoul is the only international school in Seoul to offer all three IB programs. The prestigious school puts special attention on the arts, encouraging students to practice various art forms from visual to performing.
Mijung Koo, a Dwight parent with two sons who will be performing at Carnegie Hall, expressed her delight, “This program gives children the platform to learn and work individually, within their school community and as a global member of the Dwight network. One of the elements of music is harmony; my children are learning harmony as it applies to music as well as harmony amongst people of diverse backgrounds.”
