“Mums in Touch” cook lunch for CMIS graduating class
A group of Chiang Mai International School
parents, who call themselves “Mums in Touch” and who helped all year to
support the school sports teams, and who also organize support for the
students in various ways, prepared a ‘home-cooked’ lunch in honor of the
2003 Senior Class in the week after the final exams were taken. This
luncheon event was held in the school assembly hall during a break in school
of “Mums-in-Touch” from CMIS, who organized a special lunchtime event in
order to honor the 2003 Graduating Class of High School Seniors. Thank You
Mums! Nothing would have been possible without you! (Photo by Geoff

Bangkok Symphony String Orchestra a sell-out in Chiang Mai
Surachai T. Bunditkul
Bangkok Symphony String Orchestra performed live at two
concerts at Chiang Mai University. The demand was way beyond the
organizer’s expectations, with no seats left for some of the crowd who had
queued to gain admission.
Karnchanawerayotin performs a flute solo during the Bangkok Symphony String
Orchestra sell-out concert in Chiang Mai.
The Faculty of Fine Arts, CMU and the Bangkok Symphony
String Orchestra entitled the performances the La-Ong Concert. There were
only two performances, with one reserved solely for students.
The music was conducted by His Excellency Privy Councilor
Rear Admiral M.L. Atsanee Pramoj, who presented music by Vivaldi (Flute
concert in D major), Mendelssohn (Violin concerto in D minor) and M.L. Usni
Pramoj (Suite for String Orchestra). Ms. Tassanee Nakwatchara and Worrapong
Karnchanawerayotin were soloists in the classic performance.
The concert was incredibly successful. Although it was raining that
night, the concert hall was full with both Thais and foreigners making up
the audience. The performances had been booked out beforehand, and although
many came in the hope of purchasing a ticket, they were disappointed because
there was no further room available.
