StART Society’s (an academy dedicated to serve the underprivileged children community) annual charity concert which features performances by the foundation’s children and celebrity friends will be back this year from 5th to 6th July (Thursday and Friday) and will be held at the MBPJ Civic Hall.
As a a non-profit organization that provides underprivileged children with free lessons in music, arts, dance and drama, the society’s long-term and continuous tutelage of the arts among underprivileged children will be translated into two nights of music, song, drama and dance. Among the guest celebrities slated to also hype up “The Change” concert next month are:
- Shawn Lee
- Arthur Kam
- Ain Zulkifly
- Vince Chong
- Genervie Kam
StART’s celebrity ambassadors Asha Gill, Emily Lim, and Liang will also be present at the event to lend support to the children.
“Our role in StART is to provide underprivileged children with equal opportunities to learn and experience the arts. The very core of this society is to help unearth these talents and to nurture them further”, Joshua Lee (Programme Director of StART Society) said.
“After months of training and learning, ‘The Change’ concert is the perfect platform for the children to showcase their talents and to demonstrate what they have learned. It has been amazing to see how some of these children have evolved over the past few months. I urge everyone to spare some time to come support these children and to be mesmerized by their performances”, he added.
StART Society will also be hosting an art exhibition called, “UOB-StART” in collaboration with United Overseas Bank (UOB) prior to the upcoming concert. The exhibition which will be held from 16th June to 3rd July at Citta Mall in Ara Damansara, will showcase a range of some of the best works by the children of StART.
“The Change” concert is open to public and tickets are going for only RM50. All funds collected from the concert will be channeled to funding the society’s programmes.
