The School Concert “The Joys of Spring” was held successfully on 14 April in the College Theatre at the Lee Shiu Building of the HKU SPACE Community College. That night, many talented teachers, students and alumni were invited to perform on stage, bringing a musical feast to the audience. Nearly 300 music lovers came and gave the show a rapturous reception.
The evening started with a sublime 4-hand piano duet from Elsa Lee and Cherie Tsang. This was followed by Alex Chen, who joined Mida Pang, to sing some Broadway hits, including New York New York and All I ask of you.
After Felix Ungar took the stage with the rest of his brilliant string quartet of John Ma, Biffa Kwok and Toni Roig Tarros, he gave a stunning solo viola performance.
Before the audience could draw a breath, Cal and Zoe stepped into the spotlight with a sensationally energetic display of tap dancing that got a big round of applause from the audience.
With everyone’s feet still tapping, the busking trio of Samuel Ng and students Yue Hin and Thomas Yeung brought the concert to a terrific finale with some Cantopop favourites, before Alex Chen returned to sing goodbye with the Cantopop classic 憑著愛, bringing the show to a nostalgic climax.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the musicians, teachers and alumni for their extraordinary efforts and captivating performances. Our sincere thanks also go to the event sponsor, Mr William Au Weng-hei, SBS, JP, and all other patrons, for their generous sponsorship. All proceeds will go to the HKU SPACE Bursary Fund to assist full-time students with financial needs.
