Our First Benefit Concert for Earthquake Victims in Haiti

Posted by Crystal on March 27, 2010 at 4:45 AM

     On March 25, 2010, our club had the first benefit concert. Congratulations to every excellent performer! We arrived at Smith Ranch Homes around seven thirty and received a cordial welcome. People there led us directly to the performance hall. The hall was already filled with seats which had our designed program sitting on them. Everyone felt nervous. Musicians, Gaby, Caitlin, Maggie, Kim and Angela, were busy with practicing while Alison was warming up her voice. The concert started at eight. Violinists, Caitlin and Maggie played two pieces each and Gaby played one. Alison sang two songs. Flutists, Kim and Angela, played one piece each. The one-hour-concert ended with the pianist, Toki’s melody. Everyone clapped their hands and thanked us for giving such a fabulous evening. I was the Media who took the pictures and supported my teammates. I feel proud of having all talented teammates. Great job!

     Also, thanks Peggy, being a great announcer. Thanks Mr. Graber for his piano accompaniment. Thanks Joanna for being in charge of the music stands during the whole performance. And, thanks for everyone who attended the concert, and all people who pay close attention to our club. We are planning for our next concert. We raised $400 from this concert and it was for the earthquake victims in Haiti.
