The PSPA Singers put up an “almost stellar” performance last night, at The 7th Night of July charity concert. The two-part show saw an international recital in the first half, and a musical in the second half.
During the recital, the singers were garbed in national costumes from around the world, to deliver popular songs in various languages.
Following the opening track of 7th Night of July from Hong Kong were Anak in Tagalog from the Philippines, Itsumo Nando Demo in Japanese, Arirang in Korean, and Malaysia’s very own Gadis Kampung and Bujang Lapuk in Bahasa Malaysia.
The musical was about a widower who raised his daughter single-handedly, giving her the best life he could, including tertiary education in the United States. To his dismay, upon graduation and return to Ipoh, she got engaged to a beef noodle proprietor, her childhood friend.
Captivating the audience with many an emotional scene, this musical was different from previous PSPA productions.
The interactive conclusion of the play had a question posed to us, of what we should do if we were in the father’s shoes. Would we accept our daughter’s relationship with someone who seemingly doesn’t match her in social and financial status?
PSPA Singers is a community choir under the auspices of Perak Society of Performing Arts (PSPA). The beneficiary of this charity concert was Lighthouse Hope Society (LHS). President of PSPA Datin Rosalina Ooi was on hand to present a cheque for RM3000 to LHS President Dr. SS Gill.
LHS is a non-profit organisation that reaches out to the homeless, helpless and hungry in our community regardless of race or religion.
