"This Life, This Lifetime" Concert
"This Life, This Lifetime" concert is the first concert of the JHF Choir since its establishment in 2019. We hope that you will come to this special concert and enjoy the performance.
This concert is special in multiple ways:
The program includes wonderful choral songs by Ching-Ju Shih, a well-known composer born in Taiwan. The lyrics of the songs are in Mandarin, Taiwanese, Hakka and English. The theme song of the concert, "This Life, This Lifetime" debuts in this concert.
The articulation of each song was guided by the composer Ching-Ju Shih herself and the late conductor Bor-Jen Lin; It was continued by the joint effort of several choir members and outstanding singers who have been trained professionally. This collaboration has allowed the group to sing with an unusual conducting arrangement that pays tribute to the late conductor.

百合花/Lily , 佛手/Buddha’s Hand
墮落天使/Fallen Angel, 流轉/Flowing Around

Share a Bit of Gem in You
An Open Stage for All
“Share a Bit of Gem in You” is not a competition, but more like an open stage for K-12 students to share a bit of themselves in a presentation. There is no preset categories for submission. Just share with the fellow participants, friends and families something about yourself that you treasure the most. Sky is the limit for the scope and theme, as long as the subject and the presentation are constructive, positive, beneficial and not harmful to our society.
We wish the most important reward for the participant is the experience from recognizing something they like the most to making efforts to share with other folks. J&H Foundation also gives a few participants $300 scholarships and the other participants some gifts based on the merits and efforts of the project.
There are 4 advisors who are psychiatrists and educators for the youth to give feedbacks to all participants.
