Hua Hin, Thailand - It is often said that Dusit Thani Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s leading hotels with the classic and elegant touch. During three days in April, Dusit Thani Hua Hin will live up to its reputation by welcoming members of the 6th Silpakorn Summer Music School (SSMS) to the hotel where they will be showcasing their budding talents in a mini-series of free chamber and orchestral concerts.
The 80 SSMS students are amongst the finest young musicians from all over Thailand. Chosen through highly competitive auditions and come together for a week each summer at the Rehearsal Camp on the beautiful campus of Silpakorn University at Hua Hin, located only two hours away from Bangkok. Once primed, the ensemble will be performing two chamber concerts at the lobby of Dusit Thani Hua Hin from 7 – 10 April, followed by a full orchestra concert at Napalai Ballroom in the majestic setting before giving a closing performance at Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok.
A staggering 1,000 musicians, ranging in age between 14 to 25, have auditioned for SSMS. The students who have been selected received the full scholarship or partial scholarship programmes to study with an exceptional array of principal players from renowned symphony orchestras around the world, including Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Symphony Orchestra, NHK (Japan) Symphony Orchestra, as well as those in Italy and the USA. The special guest conductor for the orchestra this year is musical maestro Hikotaro Yazaki, who will be wielding his magical baton over a magnificent concert programme featuring works from Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8 in G.
The free chamber concert programme at the lobby of Dusit Thani Hua Hin will be performed at 5.30pm from 7 - 8 April, with a gratis orchestral concert taking place on 9 April in Napalai Ballroom at 6pm. A closing concert will be performed the following evening, 10 April, at Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok at 7pm. Tickets will be priced at THB200 for adult and THB100 for student.
