Spreading the message of hope at Deutsche Bank’s Born to Be charity concert in Hong Kong

October 2016 │ Hong Kong

Deutsche Bank charity partners and clients, along with staff in Hong Kong brought home a message of hope in the first weekend of October, through the Born to Be charity concert held at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre on October 2.

Organised in partnership with the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra (MYO), the concert was a platform for four Deutsche Bank-supported scholars -- including three special needs boys who play the violin, and a girl from a migrant family who is a talented bassist -- to perform on stage along with the MYO, in front of a sold out concert with a 2,000 strong audience. Deutsche Bank leadership including APAC CEO Werner Steinmueller, staff and clients also turned up to show their support for the scholars, with many leaving the concert inspired.

It also helped build awareness for MYO, with some in the audience attending a concert by the MYO for the very first time. “I really enjoyed the performance. We didn't even know that Hong Kong had a youth orchestra, let alone such a talented one! Thank you for the opportunity to hear and watch them play,” commented a client who attended the event.

The event also featured a talk by renowned international animator Davy Liu who recited the story of Kendu the fox, a timeless parable of promise and hope. Leading up to the concert, Liu assisted by Deutsche Bank volunteers conducted a creative workshop for 80 students, teaching them to think outside the box, work in teams and stretch their imagination. The theme of the event was 'You can do it' in line with the concert's message of hope.

Peter Lo, Chief Country Officer of Deutsche Bank Hong Kong thanked the volunteers for making the day special for the four scholars who were able to perform proudly in front of their friends, family and music lovers across Hong Kong. “This is what they were born to do and we simply facilitated,” he added.
