Music from Young Heart Concert
For the Children in 5.12 China Earthquake
The Benefit Concert to Aid Sichuan Disaster Orphans and Disabled Students
From Chinese-American Youth in New Jersey to Chinese Youth in Sichuan
(Organized and performed by Juilliard Pre-College Chinese-American Students)
In Sichuan Province of China, a magnitude 8.0 earthquake has taken tens of thousands of innocent lives and injured many more, including many young students!
In the State of New Jersey of the United States, this terrible tragedy struck the souls of our Chinese community. All of us, including many young students, feel deep sorrow and heartache.
Among these students, a group of them decided that they could not permit themselves to be shaken by the tragedy; they decided that they should use their special talents to express their love and care for their Chinese peers who are enduring pain and suffering.
They are New Jersey Chinese-American students who study at the Juilliard Pre-College in New York City.
They belong to a similar age group of those in Sichuan, from 11 to 18 years old. They hope the voice of their music will inspire other Chinese-American youth in New Jersey, working together to organize a special benefit concert to raise funds. They want to channel the energy on the stage and in the audience into a single force and send a special loving message from Chinese-American students in New Jersey to their peers in Sichuan, China.
There are 21 student performers. They are:
Yuqing Meng, Betty Zhou, Lynn Chao, Kevin Chen, Jiayan Sun, Lilia Xie, Jonathan Young，Angie Zhang， Albert Cao, Richard Shen, Elizabeth Lu, Kevin Jang, Dawn Wang, Anita Chen, David Ko, Lily Qiu
The Benefit Concert to Aid Sichuan Disaster Orphans and Disabled Children will be held at 3:00pm on Saturday, June 7, 2008 in the Auditorium at East Brunswick High School, located [insert address]. The young performers hope to unite with other young music students, their families, and the entire audience to make this unprecedented benefit concert a venue of unity in purpose and charity in action. Through this endeavor, they wish to spread a loving message and give encouragement to those in need. At the same time, they long to learn and grow from the experience.
All proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships, net of expenses (renting space, advertising, and printing programs), will be donated to China Children Charitable Foundation, designated to aid Sichuan Disaster Orphans and Disabled Children. DVD and CD for the concert together with the donation check will be presented to Chinese Consulate General of New York for final beneficiary.
