Music bonds us together. More than a hundred students from diverse backgrounds participate in IVI Giving Ambassador Ms. Sang Hee Lee’s benefit concerts for IVI every year. Having such a diverse group of musicians, ranging from elementary to college students and to a 90-year-old senior citizen, perform on stage is not always an easy task to handle.
Here are five students who help behind the scenes to make the concerts happen harmoniously and seamlessly. For these students, preparation usually starts months before the actual event. Students start practicing music in the repertoire and/or provide support in PR, logistics and other activities, preparing materials including posters and certificates needed for the concert. On the day of the event, they take the stage clad in uniform and their best suits to perform their flutes, violins, violas, and more.
IVI Director General Dr. Jerome Kim met with several high school students and Ms. Lee via Zoom to learn what made them devote their time and efforts during school hours and how they have contributed to present a beautiful benefit concert and make every event a great success.
