You are cordially invited to Children’s Medical Foundation (CMF)’s Benefit Concert presented by Premiere Performances and in partnership with Chamber Music Society of Yale Club of HK to feature the world renowned Ulysses Quartet and distinguished musicians of Chamber Music Society of Yale Club, including Rachel Cheung.

Witness the beauty when two ensembles join together for a first-time collaboration in Hong Kong to raise funds for critically-ill newborns in rural Asia. Proceeds will benefit CMF’s lifesaving work to ensure every child, no matter where they are, is granted access to quality healthcare.

For 23 years, Children’s Medical Foundation (CMF) has been improving the quality of medical care to underserved regions of Asia. Through specialized training of doctors and nurses, provision of advanced medical equipment, and financial assistance to families who cannot afford treatment for their children, CMF treats over 43,800 babies every year. Proceeds raised from CMF’s Benefit Concert will serve critically-ill newborns in rural China.
