Tonight I did a performance which I can claim to be very proud of – I performed in a charity fund raising concert for the Senior House Yee Hong Community, in which I not only played piano (solo – “Serenade”) but also showcase my Kungfu skills 😛 .
This concert was organized by my piano teacher Debby Du who has taught me piano for like 4/5 years since I was 6. I made a bit mistake during my piano performance, though :S , as the big piano was a bit new and I couldn’t adjust properly. The Kung Fu piece I did was excellent, however 😀 , which won me the most applause in the full Markham Theatre – I mixed my straight sword with some traditional Chinese bare hand forms including Eagle Fist, Drunken Fist, Wing Tsun, Monkey Fist, Praying Mantis Fist and Chang Quan. I think I did really well. 😀 The biggest Mandarin Chinese TV station in Canada “Talentvision TV” (城市電視) interviewed me before the performance and I got a certificate after the show. I am proud that I can help raising funds for seniors, they remind me of my grandma (of my mom”s side) who always take care of me wholeheartedly, and my grandparents who left me and went to heaven when I was still young. We should all love, respect and help seniors. Oh yeah, forgot to mention – my mom is one of the sponsors to this event as well. She took all those photos for me.
Here is the Program of the concert; and I was mentioned as a “Special Performing Guest” for my Kung Fu showcase 😛 ‘I am proud of supporting Senior House Yee Hong Charity Concert as performer! You may also checkout a bunch of photos from my performance that night over here.
