The Golden Top Fundraising Concert was a great success on May 28th at the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral in the heart of downtown Vancouver! This concert has received extensive attention from all walks of life. It is a musical event that brings together famous musicians in the city to perform great music.
Ms. Elizabeth Volpe Bligh the former principal harpist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, performed her own composition “Downstairs Spider”; and Mr. Joseph Elworthy, the President, and CEO of the Vancouver Academy of Music collaborated with pianist Mr. Bogdan Dulu on the serene Quartet for the End of Time,’ Praise to the Eternity of Jesus’ by Messiaen. The finale of the concert ended with two world famous pieces Faure’s Pavane and Beethoven’s 5th Symphony performed by A Little Night Music Orchestra conducted by Music Director Alana Chan, which brought the evening to a climax.
The concert organizer – Lynn Liu, President of the Canada International Art and Music Society, gave a speech at the beginning of the concert.
“Since the epidemic two years ago, this is the first live concert held by the society, and I am very happy to invite our artists to return to the stage. Tonight, we will combine music with health and pass on music and love. The funds obtained will be used to support the education and training of the new generation of artists and platforms to display their works, and some of the funds will also be donated to the North Vancouver Lions Gate Hospital Foundation for the update of radiotherapy technology equipment. Thanks to every audience present. Your presence gives the cast and crew the greatest encouragement and affirmation!”
Ms. Louise Campbell, Vice President of Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, the partner of the party, delivered a speech. She introduced the Lions Gate Hospital and its radiotherapy program, fully acknowledged the contributions of the organizers and sponsors, and expressed her heartfelt gratitude.
