The performance was given by the International Schools Music Society Festival Choir made up of more than 300 singers, accompanied by Big Band and was directed by US conductor, Dr Robert Hasty.
Mr Artley’s work was very popular in the concert, which also included Michael Tippett’s Five Spirituals and Benjamin Britten’s Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. Here is a message he received from a student at the host school:
Joey Lau - Hi Mr Artley, it’s such a great pleasure having you in this festival. Your song and your enthusiasm for the festival have given us students a superb impression. We all think that you're a great musician, and that you should keep your good work. Best, Your choir member
