Penelope Anstruther (GIH 2010)

After completing my IB in 2010 I studied Art in Florence, London, Osaka and the US; graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute last year with a BFA in Printmaking. I have several exciting shows this summer: three group exhibitions, one in London and two in the US: Visions of Nature at the Chelsea Fringe Festival in London (May-June); Longitude, Latitude & Elevation at the Valley Arts Center in Oregon; a Book Arts show throughout July and August and the Chasing Paper exhibition at the 25th Annual Lake Oswego Festival of The Arts in Oregon (June). A solo show of my works entitled In Darkness Merge (My Shadow & I) was up during May at Hi-Lo Press in Atlanta, quickly followed by a solo show at Artist Television Access in San Francisco throughout June.

Joanne Clara Sy (Sennocke 2010)

I am now based in London and was commissioned by Akram Khan Company to compose for Portraits in Otherness, a dance production performed in June at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London, which is set to tour in Europe and Asia. As an alumna of Sevenoaks School, I was offered the opportunity to work with Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra last year, where my orchestral piece ‘Moved’ received its world première as part of my instrumental EP release ‘Lifted’. The solo pieces from the EP were then performed in London and Seoul in a concert series, and went on tour in the major cities in Israel this summer. Over summer, I began scoring for a new short film, Daughter, which is scheduled to release next year. (2018)
