Students with special needs and peers from mainstream schools get to perform together
Deftly, the young artists swooped and swirled the sand beneath their fingers, animating it into imaginative pictures while, in front of them, musicians rang out a musical backdrop with handbells.
Coming from different schools and of different ages, around 350 young artists opened the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) with a concert on June 30 at the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
The concert was special for another reason: It featured a handbell performance by 13-to 18-year-old students with special needs from Grace Orchard School, collaborating with mainstream students from Guangyang Primary School and CHIJ St Joseph’s Convent.
