Nanoseed, a student-run organization that offers low-interest loans and grants to students and entrepreneurs in rural China, will hold its second benefit concert at the Rothschild Performing Arts Center on March 13 at 7 p.m. All proceeds will go toward loans and student scholarships.
The event will feature a wide variety of student performers, including piano performances by sophomore Yejin Song, sophomore Spencer Cha and junior Audrey Liu, as well as violinist Sophia Horng, grade 11, and guitarist Wilson Zhang, grade 11. Student a cappella group Signature also will be making an appearance, and dance acts will include a ballet performance by Arely Sun, grade 10, a duet by seniors Anna Miner and Emiko Armstrong, and a group comprising Miner and Armstrong as well as seniors Chloe Chen, Vance Hirota, Ethan Hu and Kai-Ming Ang. Performers from other Bay Area schools are also set to appear. The performances and speeches will reflect the theme of this year’s concert, “Give to Grow.”
