Spotlight On Our Student Marlene

Marlene, Grade 11, has been an inspiration within the music department at ISR.  She prepares her own performances and supports other students with their performances. Marlene is a standing member of the ISR orchestra, volunteering her free time to hone her performance as well as help others. At the same time she makes sure she devotes enough time to her academic studies.  Marlene has always worked diligently to ensure consistently high grades for her coursework & her final exam.

Recently, at the Schuhmannfest 2019, Marlene not only performed her own piano composition but also the Solo Clarinet part in Monas composition. If that wasn’t enough, she went above and beyond her commitment, by acting as the Master of Ceremonies for the ISR Schumannfest Event, even preparing introductory speeches in German for the local audience. Marlene, along with Adrian, prepared the questions for the exclusive interview with global piano star Ms. Gabriela Montero, representing ISR in a truly professional manner.

Marlene approaches all that she does with enthusiasm and a very positive, can-do attitude. Truly an inspirational student, who will go far in life.

We are proud to spotlight Marlene, one of many of ISR’s outstanding students!

Our “Student Spotlight” project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, “Staying Ahead”. No matter if academic achievements, special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
