Benefit Concert for Children in Nepal

Posted by Cherry Yuan on April 23, 2013 at 2:35 AM

On April 14, 2013, Children in Need held a benefit concert at HOTA in San Domenico School. The concert started at 7:00 pm while members showed up after 6:00 pm to set up the place and rehearse their pieces. Club members executed themselves professionally from reception to performance. The overall concert was filled with high spirits and enthusiasm.


The concert started with Kuni’s introduction and Fiona’s short speech about the purpose of this concert. That was to raise money for the orphanage in Nepal where she would represent our club to teach art and English this summer. After the brief introduction, the concert started with Mirah's playing of a cello suite by Bach. Then the club musicians brought audience an array of classical music including pieces by Beethoven, Liszt, Sarasate, Kreisler, Kuhlau and Zili Lee. Freshman, Linda Li, performed for the first time at our club’s event. Club members are multi talented such as Amanda’s and Elena’s flute playings as well as Amanda’s piano and Elena’s violin performances. The high point of the concert was RJ’s playing of a piano piece by Franz Liszt, “Mazeppa”. His spirited performance was spectacular and impressive. Cherry’s sensational playing of a violin piece by a Chinese composer, Zili Lee, also brought a different flavor of music to people.


We especially like to thank Miles Graber for contributing his time and efforts in accompanying the performers.
