The 2021 Middle School Music Night was like no other as it coincided with Telethon. Our very own Oliver Lim, who is heavily involved in the music program, was one of the telethon kids so we had to make it big!

From the concert band to the classical guitar, the Schola choir to the jazz combo, it was a night to remember. There was a balance of musical ensembles, choral music and individual performances but the highlight of the night was when the music students came together to sing ‘Oh Happy Day’ lead by Oliver. We were surprised when the staff, dressed in choristers gowns, joined us on stage with the singing.

Oliver gave a heartwarming speech about what he’s been through and you could tell he was truly grateful for all the support Aquinas has given him. As this was my last Middle School Music Night l could not have thought of a better way to have spent it.

Thanks to Oliver and all the talented students, it was definitely a night to remember.
