April MAP - Bridge over communication difficulties with autistic children


Presented by the PMA Music Foundation in association with the Music Therapy Development Centre, the fourth voluntary service of the Music Angel Program (MAP) will be held at the Heep Hong Society Parents Resources Centre for the children with developmental problems or autistic disorder on April 16, 2005 (Saturday). In this MAP service, Mr. Jim Chim, one of the greatest and widely loved actors will be our “Star of Angel”.

22 Music Angels are defined into different instrumental groups and will perform for the children & parents of the centre with harmonious music. Meanwhile, Mr. Jim Chim will bring lots of fun to all participants with his own brand of humour while leading various games.

In order to deliver proper concepts and knowledge in dealing with people with various disabilities, all Music Angels and their parents to take part in this service will attend a pre-service seminar entitled “Keys to Harmoniousness”, which will be conducted by Miss Joanna Chan Mei Yuk, the founder of the Music Therapy Developmental Centre on Apr 11, 2005 (Monday) at 8pm at CR1, Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

Through the MAP, the PMA Music Foundation wishes to encourage the youths to participate in voluntary services. As Music Angels, the youths will learn to develop themselves into a philanthropic role model to bring music, caress and laughter to the pre-defined target groups. Most of the Music Angels are selected from the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra (MYO).

Enclosed is a list of the scheduled services by which the Music Angels are to be in various forms of musical ensembles to pay visits to the pre-defined target groups once a month in a weekend from January to June 2005.

The MAP – a meaningful and interesting program for our next generation to learn to serve our community by means of music.
