It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Richard Gill on 28th October 2018. Richard inspired everyone at ISCMS when he led our chorus at ISCMS' Tenth Anniversary Festival in Beijing. He led rehearsals with humour and exceptional musicianship, and he inspired everybody who was in the room. It's a testament to his warmth and approachability that at every break and mealtime, he would be surrounded by a gang of students eager to soak up more of his wisdom, expertise and of course, his jokes!

He will be sorely missed, and we are grateful to have been able to experience Richard's brilliance. The ISCMS family send our condolences to Richard's family and friends back in Australia. Rest in Peace, Richard.
ISCMS XII will be hosted by Y K Pao School in Songjiang, Shanghai from 20th - 23rd February 2019.

The Festival Gala Concert will be held at Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Concert Hall on Saturday 23rd February at 7pm.
In 2008 the International Schools Choral Music Society (ISCMS) hosted its first festival, culminating in a performance of Faure’s Requiem. More than 100 students from 9 International Schools participated.

In February 2017, ISCMS celebrated its 10th anniversary, back in Beijing, with a spectacular Gala Concert at the Forbidden City Concert Hall with over 350 performers.
