The second annual Seeds of Hope Fundraising Concert at the China Conservatory of Music in Beijing on March 19th, 2012 marked another milestone in YCIS history. Over 350 student and teacher musicians from Yew Chung International School of Beijing, Shanghai and Qingdao campuses gathered on one stage to play a three-part concert series that entranced audience members and transported them around the world with a global selection of music.

A ceremonial presentation started the concert with a video highlighting the milestones of the Seeds of Hope charity. Present at the concert were YCIS Beijing Principal, Wayne Richardson, and two students from Qufu Yew Chung and Yew Wah Hope Primary School to accept a symbolic cheque of RMB 500,250 toward the cost of construction. One student held a small tree to symbolize the growth of a seed sown one year ago at the Qingdao and Yantai Seeds of Hope Concert

To continue this tradition, YCIS student and parent representatives along with Director Dr. Betty Chan, Professor Paul Yip and honored guests planted a new seed to represent the sowing of support for building the second Seeds of Hope School located in Wanan Town of Li County, Baoding City, Hebei province.

With the new “seed” sown, a fanfare of music kicked off the concert, which included jazz, dance, choir and a piano solo from Johnson Li, an eight-year-old Lang Lang Music Scholarship recipient. The dynamic conclusion an original music piece called “Seeds of Hope,” written and conducted by Gary Sanderson, Head of Music and Visual Arts Division. With all performers on stage, the passion for Seeds of Hope could be felt by the entire audience as the final crescendo of instruments and singing resulted in a standing ovation.
