Studio Classroom and Heavenly Melody held three Christmas Concerts in Kaohsiung and Taipei on December 9 and 17, after two years of no in-person concerts due to the pandemic. More than 4,100 people attended the concerts, and many watched online via livestreaming.
In a year filled with uncertainty, change and conflicts in many parts of the world, the theme was Hope and Peace. How the world needs the hope and peace that Jesus brought to Earth over 2,000 years ago. Heavenly Melody sang Christmas classics like “O Holy Night”, “Joy to the World”, “Jingle Bells”, “Silent Night”, and “One King”. The concert also featured lovely men and women’s trios and a live band. One highlight was “Mary, Did You Know?” sang by Heavenly Melody’s Mei Wang, Sharon Ting, and Cher Mai. This year’s skit was heartwarming and humorous with Heavenly Melody singer Peggy Wang, English teachers David Lee and David Morton playing angels inquiring about God’s plan for the world, and Gabriel Harbour playing the angel Gabriel. Longtime teacher Hazel Johansen gave a short message of the eternal hope that baby Jesus brought to the world. Our hope is many will find lasting hope and step into the new year with courage.
