最初的愛- 東海大學基督教會管弦樂團暨詩班母親節音樂會

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:

P1060026

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.

  1. Wondrous Love
  2. What Star is This
  3. Ave Maria
  4. Tell it on the Mountain

The 16 elders, Ruth, her son Carl, the tour guide and myself traveled with four cars. I drove the Camry with the men. The weather is warm and breezing with some clouds.
