Music for Children at Stanford Children's Hospital

Posted by Joyce Kwon on November 21, 2012 at 2:35 PM

On October 28, 2012, Children in Need held a benefit concert at Tamalpais Methodist Church in Mill Valley. This concert was to raise money for the uncompensated children who receive dialysis treatment at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.


The club’s musicians and helpers started to come to the church around 5 pm to rehearse and set up the reception table and food. There were a lot of energy and cooperation among the students despite the fact that they come from different high schools. At 6:30 pm, Joyce Kwon started the concert by giving an opening speech. Then Kuni took the piano seat and started his melodic interpretation of English Suites by Bach. Cherry also played a Bach’s Partita No.2 in D minor for violin with impeccable techniques and tone quality. Then, Cherry and Sandra together played a violin and piano duet, Sicilienne by Maria Theresia von Paradis. Following was Gabrielle’s melodious Bruch Concerto in G major. Matthew then played Beethoven Sonata Op.81 “Led Adieus” with his flawless musicality. A new club member, Nayvin, also a member of San Francisco Youth Orchestra, played a soulful violin piece by Bach with a beautiful tune. Then, a gifted piano player Sandra played Brahms Rhapsody in G minor, wonderfully and gracefully. Cherry, once again, took the stage and enchanted the audience with her Kreisler’s Recitativo & Scherzo. Katarina, a virtuoso pianist, then played Mendelssohn’s Variations Serieuses Op. 51 with energy and fire. The concert ended with San Domenico Virtuoso Chamber Group played by Niki, Elena, Matthea, and Joyce. The four-girls’ energetic playing of Brahms’ C minor Quartet and “Por una Cabeza” by Carlos Gardel resonated within the church and ended the program on a high note.


By the end, the concert was able to raise $500. Proceed will be sent to the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health designated to the children at the Dialysis Center. After visiting these children in September, we hope our efforts could help those children financially during the long treatment process while waiting for their kidney transplants.

Through this concert, Children in Need was not only able to raise money, but also able to reascertain the cooperation and the spirit among the club members. Each and every individual member is invaluable to Children in Need and the club is thankful to have such supportive and committed members working diligently for a better cause.
