I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to Shanghai American School, to the Pudong Campus, and to the 2018 APAC Band Festival (Asia Conference).
Plato has been attributed with saying that “Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” It is my hope that this rings true for this Festival, and that by being a part of this, a passion for music in the wider SAS community will be ignited and enrich all of our lives.
Our community is excited and honored to be hosting this APAC event. We are looking forward to the fantastic music, the opportunity to learn from other schools and guest directors, and the chance to meet new friends.
On behalf of the SAS Activities Office, the Shanghai American School staff, students and parents, we hope you have a wonderful experience while with us.
