On April 14, 2014, Cherry Yuan and I went to the Stanford Children's Hospital to perform for children on dialysis machines. It was one child's birthday, so we opened by playing Happy Birthday . Before playing our prepared pieces, we gave the children a short introduction about the pieces and the composers. We then played several short, lively duet pieces written by I.J.Pleyel. After that Cherry played three solo pieces: Love's Greeting by E. Elgar, Meditation by Jules Massenet and part of La Ronde des Lutins (The Round of Golins) by A. Bazzini. Our little audience members seemed to enjoy the music very much. There was one little girl who was sitting up in her bed and staring bright eyed at us through to the end of the performance. We hope that our music brought them happiness, hope and energy.
