Siam Commercial Bank Public: SCB supports “Silpakorn Summer Music School”
SCB supports “Silpakorn Summer Music School” by providing young Thai people with opportunities and skills in music education
The Siam Commercial Bank has continuously supported the Silpakorn Summer Music School (SSMS) from 2010 to the present day, providing learning opportunities for those interested in Western music directly from faculties and experts and enabling them to share and demonstrate their musical talents. The camp encourages young people to spend quality free time to practice teamwork, promote unity, leadership, division of labor and problem solving, allowing them to grow into quality adults while creating music for the benefit of Thai society. At the 17th and final camp, seventy young participants and players of stringed instruments such as violin, viola, cello, double bass and classical guitar participated in honing their musical skills with national and international experts from foreground. Participants also attended masterclasses and workshops to learn about improvisation and music marketing and to develop ideas for creating music to benefit society. The summer camp was held at Siam Commercial Bank Training Center in Tawanron Beach.
At the end of the camp, the young learners performed Simple Symphony by British composer Benjamin Britten and music composed by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center under the direction of British conductor Leo Philips. All the young musicians who participated in the project gained valuable experiences that they can use in their future careers while passing on their knowledge and skills to the next generation.
