It is separated from the other topic because there is a long passage below about this recording.

It's for piano four hands, 2 violins, recorder and vocals, arranged by us. (Piano part was improvised)

Graduation Medley - Live Performance:
Video (please click to "videos") and music are available. It is the show performed by our class in the graduation dinner.

Totally 20 different songs form the medley.
The first sentence is our school song.
Then after 7 pop or old songs in Hong Kong, it comes the bell ring (The Maiden's Prayer), and there are 11 songs afterwards and it ends.

There is a little section cut in the middle, the reason is unknown.

For details of artists, please see the description there.

Unfortunately, the piano is outside the hall, a microphone is needed to transfer the signals to the hall.
Therefore we (playing the piano) can't listen to the violins and vocals, what a pity!
And hence, the cooperation among us was not as good as expected. Sorry for that.

In addition, we played the piano slower than that during practice, so sometimes our classmates sang faster than the violinists and pianists.

Before the "Maiden's Prayer", which is the bell ring of our school, the piano is not loud enough, however, the latter part is much better.

For the recorder part, I and my brother took turn to play the recorder for some sections, but as the piano was outside, and the microphone was put in the grand piano, the sound of recorder almost could not be recorded. (If your ears are good enough, you can listen to a little)

The first sentence is our school song.
Then after 7 pop or old songs in Hong Kong, it comes the bell ring (The Maiden's Prayer), and there are 11 songs afterwards and it ends.

Hi Alvin

An interesting video (who did the choreography? ;\) )

I imagine you learned a lot from this experience...I should also imagine it was very hard to lead the choir form another room...yikes!

thanks for sharing
