Kowloon Junior School Music Concert

The Kowloon Junior School Music Concert was held in the school on Wednesday, 28th March 2007. All the hardwork, persistence and commitment on the part of all the students who participated in the concert, bore fruit.

What an awesome performance it was !!

Absolutely astounding, totally breathtaking. It was quite literally an “out of the world” presentation from the 211 students who presented a varied selection of items from their school’s Extra Curricular Music Programme.

Aparna is a member of the Year 3 String Club of the Kowloon Junior School. This young group comprised of 8 violinists and 2 cellists. The Year 3 String Club played for the members of the audience during both halves of the concert.

During the first half, they played two pieces

Concerto in a Minor 1st movement

and

Blackjack




During the second half, the Year 3 String Club accompanied the Year 3 Choir in presenting “February Twilight”.

The tandem that the children in the Choir and the children in the String Club demonstrated during this song was unbelievable.


Such was the concentration and determination on each and every young face that one had no choice but to acknowledge the wonderful commitment of these talented students of KJS who prepared, practiced, rehearsed and performed with huge enthusiasm.

And the deafening applause that used to fill the school hall at the end of each and every piece that was presented, stood testimony to that fact.

Geoffrey Latham once said “Music is the vernacular of the human soul”.

And that was what the huge audience of parents witnessed. The Music Concert brought together children of many different nationalities, presenting varied musical items in more than one language – and they did it with great grace and panache.

Thomas Carlyle once said “Music is well said to be the speech of angels;in fact, nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near to the infinite”

The hour and a half of joy, pride and peace that the children bestowed upon their audience during the concert, was priceless. It was infinite, it was immeasurable.
