Tunghai University Christian Church (東海大學路思義教堂) Orchestra and Choir held a concert at Guogou Elementary School Auditorium on May 5, from 4:00 pm to 5:20 pm. This is their first countryside outreach event and the purpose is to celebrate Mother’s day with the community. The Biblical theme is Psalm 139 verse 13-14:
13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
The Orchestra and Choir came around 2:30 pm in two buses and left shortly after the concert, around 6:00 pm. The weather is cloudy, mild temperature and humid. This is the first time ever for Guogou villagers to see such a large size classical music group.
The program consists of music from Baroque to Classical to Contemporary periods.
