The evening's programme began with a delightful Fisherman’s song, for both violin and piano, followed by three songs for solo violin. The second half features Brahms’s music works, which are sonata for violin and piano. Combined with the previous Eastern and Western music style, the concert was reflected as an artistic experience through time.

Year 4 Public Relations and Advertising (PRA) student Hu expressed her love for music. During her preparation for the IELTS, attending the concert offered her an opportunity to relax.
