All the chorus members overcame difficulties in work and life, sacrificed the precious time for rest, and rehearsed their chorus again and again so that they would perfect it finally under the guidance of a music teacher. They enthralled the audience and the panelists with their consummate performance, winning a second prize by the high score of 97.26. This is the best result that the School of Foreign Languages Union Branch has ever won in history.
