One Family Folk Music Gala

One Family Folk Music Gala banner

Folk music had been the prevailing music in the 70-80’s, when many Wahyanites have enjoyed the acoustic sound and collaboration with fellow schoolmates. To rekindle the culture of traditional music in the two Wah Yan and among alumni and friends of Wah Yan, the Foundation will jointly organise a Folk Music Gala with the Past Students’ Associations of Wah Yan Hong Kong and Wah Yan Kowloon on 30 August 2009. This Gala, in the form of a Singing Contest, will draw many of our music lovers to showcase their talents again on stage.
