The Risen Christ Youth Symphony (RCYS) performed a charity concert in aid of Assisi Hospice on May 24.
Inspired by Fr John Sim, parish priest of the Church of the Risen Christ in January 2013, the RCYS had also performed for the church’s Feast Day celebration on Easter Sunday last year, as well as a fundraiser concert for Novena Church’s redevelopment fund in December 2013.
The RCYS has also been invited by the National Library to perform a Christmas programme in December this year.
The orchestra aims to perform good quality concerts for the purpose of generating monies for the poor and the needy. Its underlying ethos is to propagate Christian values and teaching, most notably the catechetical teaching of championing the integrity of the human person through the music it performs.
