MONTVILLE, NJ - A spectacular event took place at the Montville Township Library on June 2. Sixteen wonderfully talented musicians performed a concert, hosted by MTHS juniors Amy Zheng and Cameran Ko, for the Montville community. With the Montville Chinese Community Youth Club hosting their fourth Youth Club Spring Concert, this event brought joy and admiration to Montville residents. Players such as NJ Symphonic Orchestra rising concert mistress, Yoojin Kang, and award-winning pianist, Crystal Su, demonstrated their talents. However, Yoojin and Crystal were not the only spectacles of the concert. Children from ages 6 to 16 played violin, piano and also sang for the audience, showcasing their hard work and passion for music. Our special guest of honor, Matt Kayne, a member of the Montville Township Committee, came to enjoy the concert.
During the concert, many styles of music were exhibited. The musical pieces ranged from classical pieces by the renowned Bach and Chopin to modern compositions such as Faded by Alan Walker. All these diverse styles of music made the concert a joy to watch.
The mission of the Montville Chinese Community Youth Club is to "inspire the young generation to utilize their growing intelligence and skills as a way to contribute to the community." This concert achieved that goal. Yoojin Kang, an extremely talented violinist, held an impromptu training session to give tips and pointers to the younger violinists who participated in the concert. This short yet sweet gesture from Yoojin shows how much the Chinese Youth Club is committed to their mission. Additionally, the Club fundraised for the Garden Club of Montville, which is a club that helps keep Montville clean and beautiful. Montville Garden Club’s president, Carol Sokol, came to the concert on behalf of the club and said she enjoyed the concert immensely.
In the end, the community was brought together through music. People of all ages were able to enjoy the different forms of music that were performed that day, all thanks to the Montville Chinese Community Youth Club.
