ALL THE RIGHT NOTES

MUSIC FOR THE GROWING MIND, FOUR SEASONS HONG KONG HOTEL; NOVEMBER 12
Inspired by El Sistema in Venezuela, a charity that uses music as a social reengineering tool to transform the lives of more than a million underprivileged children, Music for the Growing Mind strives to provide classical and Chinese music education to underprivileged children in Hong Kong and China. The charity’s inaugural gala dinner was held on November 12 at the Four Seasons Hong Kong Hotel, where a parade of aspiring young musicians performed under the tutelage of Luca Silipo, founder and chairman of Music for the Growing Mind. As board member Jennifer Zhu Scott addressed the audience to talk about the charity and thank the many table sponsors, she took a moment to mention Elements 6 Art in New York and sculptor Juginder Lamba, for their generous donation of his hauntingly beautiful bronze sculpture Enigma, which was up for a silent auction.
Among a host of generous guests, notable names included Anastasia and Damien Chunilal, Shahneela Farougui, Reyna Harilela, Shirley Hiranand, Jean Ho, Deborah Kan, Lumen and Andrew Kinoshita, William Mackay, Alessandra Schiavo, Sharie Ross Tse and Nissim Tse, Daniel Vaughn, and Kirsteen and Richard Zimmern.
By the end of the melodious evening, more than half a million dollars had been raised for the charity’s projects.
