Stars Youth Orchestra Music Scholarship Foundation

Submitted By Lei Zhang

Stars Youth Orchestra Music Scholarship Fund-Raising Events have been officially launched with the joint initiation of Senior Health Education Association and SYO. These events, headed by Lei Zhang, Music Director and Conductor, are intended to improve community music attainment through general music education, and to raise music scholarship for children of special talents and special families through routine assessments, performance, exchange activities and contests. All applicants for participation have the chances of winning various awards, and receive professional training from Stars Youth Orchestra. As we all know, music is a good activity for children. Children trained by SYO tend to excel in many other areas and get acclaimed by the public, along with the rapid improvement of their music capabilities.

Class enrollment has just started for fall semester which runs from September 7 through December 14, 2008. All students who can play orchestral instruments will receive well-arranged instruction from experienced musicians and senior educators like Lei Zhang and others. Applicants who meet certain conditions and have special talents will benefit from special discounts of the events and some of them may qualify for free enrollment. In addition, SYO is planning their first touring performances and music camp in Taiwan next summer.

For detailed program information, visit Rehearsals are between 2:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. every Sunday. The address is Fremont Adult School's Noll Center, 4700 Calaveras Ave, Fremont.

The Senior Health Education Association is a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. With Lei Zhang Violin Academy and Star Youth Orchestra, we successfully held a concert for "Sichuan Disaster Donation" on June 15. All the funds raised were counted immediately by three people in charge, and delivered to Sichuan disaster area for orphans' relief via the China Consulate in San Francisco. The event portrayed the overwhelming support from the public concerning the 2000 orphans in the earthquake-affected area. We, on behalf of the affected orphans, sincerely thank you for all your donations and help.

We appreciate the positive support, generous contributions and enthusiastic participation for this Music Scholarship from businesses and individuals in the Bay Area. Donation checks should be made to "SHEA". We will send the 501(C)(3) receipts for your tax deduction.
