“I believe music is a platform for sharing joy. After each concert and music lesson, I would love to see everyone leaving the concert hall and classroom with their smiling face. Musicians are part of the community. We might stand in different roles and respond to the society differently. We should keep thinking and finding ways to contribute our music to our communities in need and relating us to each other.”
