"Very often, we get caught up with our day to day busyness and we forget the joy of living and giving. Today, I had the privilege to bring a little bit of joy, through music, to a group of Alzheimer patients. It brings back perspective to life... to take a pause in life and celebrate life as it is, not as what it should be; giving is a privilege. Big shoutout to the youth orchestra for organising this outreach community service for the young ones." - Amanda Loo (parent of youth orchestra member)
