Our Largest Christmas Concert to Date!
On Sunday, December 1 2013, Caritas held it Annual Christmas Concert at the Shanghai Library in Puxi. With over 600 people in attendance it was our largest turnout so far. There were 13 wonderful performances including 35 children from YK Pao String & Vocal Ensemble, Soloist Jude Barrett, Christ the King International Choir, Sacred Heart of Jesus Church Band & Choir, JZ Youth Rock Band, Soloist Antoinette Kwan, Dynamix Performing Arts Academy, Heqing Migrant Children and Will Foundation boys.
The concert atmosphere was decidedly festive, with every style of music being played from Christmas carols to jazz and rock & roll music. The Dynamix students gave a very exciting performance and the Will boys sang a song in Chinese, followed by kung fu moves that delighted the entire audience.
Before, during Intermission and after the concert, guests could purchase baked goods, wines, seasonal flowers and music CDs. Three happy winners walked away with beautiful gift baskets from our lucky draw. There was even a visit by Santa Claus, who joyfully treated all good girls and boys with sweets!
Each year we strive to bring joy at the beginning of the holiday season with our fundraising Concert and this year was no exception. A big thank you goes to the organizers, performers and all the volunteers who helped make this such a special event.
