On Saturday, 17 September, KSMA string students and faculty joined with HKSMI students and faculty in a play-a-thon for Earthquake Relief. Playing in front of the clock tower at the Cultural Centre, on a bright sunny day, students performed non-stop for about 75 minutes. Selections ranged from the Twinkle variations to violin Book 8; including the Twinkle parades to begin and end the play-a-thon, the most advanced students played about 40 pieces! After the playing was finished, students had a chance to get “refreshed” at Mobile Softee 🙂
We are excited to have students and parents turn in their donations to contribute to CARE and Unicef to help displaced families have access to clean water, food, and aid in rebuilding their homes. Please make sure to turn yours in no later than 30 September.
Even if you were unable to join us on Saturday, you can still participate in the play-a-thon by getting sponsors and then making a special time to play, whether in front of friends, or just with your own family.
Congratulations to all of the students for their efforts, and for their good energy and attitude standing out in the sun for such a long time!
