Chinese Orchestra at 50+ Expo

After giving my TALK at Room B, Suntec City Convention Centre from 12 noon to about 12.45 pm, I was free till about 2.30 pm.
In the interim, there was a group performance by the Chinese Orchestra led by my fellow Active Ager Award Winner Mr Goh Seok Hiong. He was playing the Guzheng.
They entertained with some traditional Teochew melodies and other Chinese pieces as well.
It was a pity that the most of the crowd were not of that kind of background. The nearby loud music from the Line Dancing section also drowned out the beautiful music they were making.
Nevertheless, the members played on in the right spirit of the occasion of such a huge Expo.
