On the evening of September 25th, “The Youth Sings for the Motherland”—a chorus competition celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of People’s Republic of China, was hosted by Southeast University at the Jiu Ting Biao Building of Jiulonghu Campus.The chorus, In the Bright Sun, sung together by the School of Public Health and the School of Medicine, won the first prize with a score of 96.21. Li Tao, secretary of the Party Committee of our school, and Feng Qilong, deputy secretary of the Party Committee and deputy dean of our school, also joined the chorus together with the freshmen.
With the lights shining on the stage and the command raising his hands, all teachers and students sung with strong passion. They wore simple and artless costumes, sung with deep affection, saluted in dignified and proud manner, and tributed to the 70th anniversary of the motherland. The five-minute gorgeous performance on the stage was owing to the diligent rehearsal of every student on and outside the court. Since the military training, the members of the choir have gradually mastered the vocal skills of the chorus under the professional guidance from the school choir and the teachers of Nanjing University of the Arts. The repeated practices and rehearsals have led them to become the shining stars on the stage today.
This activity inspired the heartfelt patriotism and the aspiration of serving the country in the teachers and students of the School of Public Health. Just as the song says following the Communist Party and construct a big China, entering the new era, the public health students will remain true to their original aspiration and keep their mission firmly in mind, to build blocks for the health undertakings and make greater contributions to the healthy China strategy.
