Great Pianist Mr. Fou Ts'ong, who has performed in our Music Festival many times, has passed away after contracting COVID-19 last December.
We would like to extend our sincere condolences.
His passion toward music has deeply engraved on our hearts.
We have realized anew how dreadful the novel coronavirus is as we have lost a person close to us. Preventive actions of each one of us protect our loved ones.
Let's wear a mask, wash hands, keep social distance and refrain from dining with others.
