On November 24, 2013, Club President, Cherry Yuan and guest performer Irene Jeong performed at SF Towers. This concert was dedicated to the typhoon victims in the Philippines as the club’s first fundraising effort for this cause.
Both Cherry and Irene are students of San Francisco Conservatory of Music Preparatory Division. Irene started the program by performing Après un Rêve by Gabriel Fauré and The Swan by Saint-Saens. Before each of her performance, she gave some background information on the composers and pieces. Her matured and artistic performances had warmed the audience. Then Cherry played Fuga in g minor by Bach. Her flawless playing made the difficult piece sound pretty and fascinating. After Cherry, Irene played a piece by Astor Piazzolla called Le Grand Tango which had a different flavor from the rest of the program. Cherry concluded the program by playing a touching and enchanting piece called Estrellita by Manuel Ponce. The audience was greatly captivated by Cherry’s beautiful music.
