Santi Music School Charity Concert Proceeds

300 plus students from the Baan Nong Pla Man School in Mae Rim were on hand to greet Ajaan Santi.

At the start of the long school holidays, Ajaan Santi Saengthong along with part-time resident soprano You-ree Rho and others organized a very well-supported charity concert at the AUA auditorium. Ajaan Santi has organized such charitable concerts before and hundreds of pupils and students have benefitted from events like this over the last 7 years. The aim of the concert was to provide two worthy causes with money or gifts to help them in their work.
From the total proceeds of the evening, which came to a sum in the region of 19,000 baht after the deduction of essential expenses, a sum of 5,000 baht was given to the Blessing Foundation Organisation, one of whose directors attended the concert and talked briefly about the work of the Foundation.

The remaining money was then doubled in a generous gesture by Ajaan Santi and on Friday June 21st, Ajaan Santi accompanied by some of his staff, and musicologist Jai-Pee who acted as master of ceremonies at the March concert, went to present musical instruments valued at almost 30,000 baht to a chosen school in Mae Rim. The grateful beneficiaries were the pupils of the Baan Nong Pla Man school, who received 33 melodicas and 47 recorders. The Director of the school, Khun Sayamrat Kunpradit made the visitors welcome and on behalf of his 300+ strong schoolchildren and staff, gratefully received the instruments in front of the assembled youngsters.
The school, Ajaan Santi and all the other organizers and performers would like to thank those who supported this concert so generously and as a result, have enabled many young students and pupils to benefit from hands-on musical experiences that they otherwise would not have had. Apologies for not publishing this information earlier, the delay being due to the fact that the school did not re-open until the start of this month when the official arrangements were made.
