Our second talent show was a spectacular success! Performances included song, dance, and musical instruments all of different shapes and sizes ranging from electric bass to classic piano to the Chinese Pipa.
Leading off the event was the the Silicon Valley Youth Orchestra, a group of performers who had performed at similar fundraisers for students in Tanzania, Typhoon victims in the Philippines, and Earthquake relief in Sichuan, China. Another highlight of the show was a group of hiphop performing girls hailing from The Triple Threat Performing Arts Dance Studio, a nationally acclaimed dance team that also sponsored the event. Later, Justin Wang, an elevenyear old piano prodigy, who was recently invited to play at Carnegie Hall, performed “Ah vous diraije, Maman," a classical variation of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” We also welcomed community leaders, Matthew Morrison and Pleasanton City Councilmember Karla Brown.
The talent show raised over $3,000, which will support the education of 35 underprivileged students and starving orphans in Africa.
