PREVIEW: Rebuilding Haiti by Osage Art Foundation

Enough has been said on the predicament of Haiti. Now, it is time to do something about it.
I am invited to attend this benefit concert on March 6, 7pm to 12am at Sigma Space, Kwun Tong. Initial reaction was that the venue is not exactly convenient and most probably it will be some loud music by some "indie" bands in Hong Kong. Well, surprisingly, the programmes is quite appealing, at least to me.

It will start off with selections from Schubert's String Quintet in C, D. 956 to be performed by members of the HK Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by some jazz music by Peter Scherr and Friends, solo frame drum and overtone singing (whatever that means) by John Lee, Arvo Part's Speigel im Spiegel (will be looking forward to this one as Part is one of my favorite contemporary composer) to be performed by William Lane and Sheryl Lee and Caleb Burhans: In Time of Desperation to be performed by Sheryl Lee. The bad news is that from 10pm onward, new and electronic music will be "DJed"! Anyway, by that time, I would need my beauty sleep.

Seriously, it is HK$500 only for the entire evening which include drink and food. It will be a great way to spend the Saturday evening. The best part of it is that all proceeds will go to UNICEF. For more information, check out their website:
