Children of migrant workers sing for love

    THIS writer was impressed by clear voices when a group of children in school uniform started singing at a charity event in Shenzhen last month.

    The talented young singers, aged between 7 and 14, are from Ciwei Philanthropic Chorus, composed of the children of migrant workers in Shenzhen.

    The chorus, founded by Shenzhen Ciwei Philanthropy Institute in 2007, provides professional vocal training at its centers in Dapeng, Pingshan and Longhua new areas respectively.

    Traditional Chinese etiquette is also taught.

    Over 500 children from relatively poor families have received training in the last five years, and performed more than 100 times.

    The chorus is headed by Zhou Chunhu, a well-known Chinese conductor and arts professor at Shenzhen University, while professional musicians are responsible for teaching the children.

    Last year, with the help of volunteer teachers and social workers, they started teaching the children to use computers and play various instruments.

    The chorus has received support from charitable funds, enterprises, volunteer organizations and individuals.

    It made its debut in April 2009 with three profile boosting performances, and later sang with a French children’s chorus.
