On August 27-28, British International School, Phuket (BISP) was honoured to host the Pro Musica Junior Camp 2016, a project to develop string playing in Thailand inaugurated by His Majesty the King of Thailand.

Dr. Tassana from Silpakorn University in Bangkok led the weekend of workshops, which was attended by students from all over southern Thailand and included several BISP Primary and Secondary students.

Students that showed great potential were to be invited to a further camp in Bangkok leading to a prestigious performance, and only one student was invited to audition for this next stage – Caterina Bendi in Year 7 at BISP.

Caterina has just achieved an amazing distinction in her Grade 5 Music Theory examination and is clearly destined for a great musical future! Well done to everyone who took part and to Cat in particular.
