ISA Circle of Musicians (ICOM)

Overview

The ISA Circle of Musicians (ICOM) is the sole music club at ISA. It is made up of Grade 5 to Senior high school ISAer musicians who are willing to pursue, show, and improve their talents in music.

ICOM is a great venue and an important part of the school’s varied life, where musical talent is nurtured and leadership is essentially exercised and fostered through rehearsals, jamming sessions, club meetings, and performances.

Furthermore, ICOM provides practice spaces and a diverse range of instruments that are well maintained, an opportunity for members to get together and discuss music, express themselves, and be involved in a variety of musical activities, allowing them to meet new people, develop and acquire a diverse range of musical abilities.

Notable Activities and Events

CANTA'TA

The Canta’Ta is a music collaboration project that takes place on a monthly or bi-monthly schedule, with mini-productions and trainings taking place within the club.

The main objective of the project is to allow the club members to explore other areas of music performance, such as composition, playing by ear (oido), improvisation, the capability to “jam” (perform with other musicians), and the ability to actively distinguish elements of a musical piece instead of just passively listening to it.

The project will also include several themes in which participants, listeners, and viewers will learn to appreciate other cultures through music. The members will perform selected classical music, Asian and Western pop music covers. Finally, this is an excellent forum for ISAers to further their interest in listening to OPM music.

This event is a yearly on-campus and school-wide competition for music composition and lyric writing. The event will be a joint project among other ISA clubs.
