Hee Ah Lee in Concert in Bali August 14, 2009.

Inspiring South Korean Pianist in Bali to Help Raise Funds for Westin's UNICEF'S "Check out for Children" Program.


(8/8/2009)

As part of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali's collaboration in the UNICEF Check out for Children Program, a remarkable musical event will be held at the Auditorium of the Bali International Convention Center (BICC) at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, August 14, 2009.

Dream the Impossible Dream

24 year-old South Korean pianist Hee Ah Lee is a professional musician who travels the world thrilling audiences with her artistic virtuosity. She has performed with her idol Richard Clayderman; played in recital at The White House in Washington, D.C.; and won numerous awards including First Prize at the Korean National Music Contest when she was just 7 years-old.

Such achievement in one so young is noteworthy, but for a girl who was born with severe physical deformities, Hee Ah Lee's undeniable talent is breathtakingly inspiring. Born with only two fingers on each hand, afflicted with down syndrome and legs that end at her knees - doctors who attended her birth did not expect the child to survive. But, survive and thrive she did. Unable to even hold a pencil in her deformed hands, Hee Ah Lee took up the piano at the age of six with a discipline and determined ferocity that saw her sitting for hour on end at the keyboard. The results of this life-long connection with the keyboard are seen today in sparkling performances that dazzle and impress fellow pianist who concertize with a full set of fingers.

Following rave reviews for her appearance in Jakarta in March 2007, Hee Ah Lee travels to Bali on Friday, August 14th for her second Indonesian performance, entitled "Dream the Impossible Dream."

Proceeds from the performance will go to the UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge which raised more than AU$93,000 in 2008 towards efforts to immunize thousands of children in the Asia Pacific region against major childhood diseases.

In 2009, "the Challenge" has again adopted child survival as its theme. Every hour more than 300 children die because they lack access to lifesaving vaccines. UNICEF supply vaccines to 40% of children in the developing world, yet each year more than 30 million children miss out on needed immunization. For only US$30, a child can be immunized against the main childhood diseases of diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, measles, childhood tuberculosis and hepatitis B.

Tickets for the concert cost Rp. 50,000 (US$5.00).
