(11/11/2002)

High atop Bali's Bukit Jimbaran, in the dramatic setting of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, an evening of emotive music and song was presented in memory of the victims of the October 12th Kuta-Legian terrorist attack. The 70-piece Twilite Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Addie M.S., presented a program of choral, serious, and popular music, which was televised nationally on the SCTV network.

In an evening punctuated by brief interludes of inspirational spoken word, the program opened with the Indonesian National Anthem, Indonesia Raya, followed by Australia's "Advance Australian Fair".

Indonesian male pop-star, Rio Febrian, provided a moving rendition of the traditional "Amazing Grace", returning later in the evening to contribute a very well-received rendition of John Lennon's – "Imagine".

Edward Elgar's – "Nimrod" allowed the Twilite Orchestra a chance to demonstrate its high level of technical proficiency, a fact further underlined later with John William's – "Hymn to the Fallen" and the Indonesian patriotic "Tanah Tumpah Darahku", both admirably performed with the backing of Bali's talented Udayana University Choir.

Indonesian pubescent singing sensation, Sherina, a solo-headliner in Jakarta, managed to charm the audience with the well-known song in praise of the Motherland - "Ibu Pertiwi". Later, she reappeared on the stage for a less successful effort when she was miscast, both in terms of repertoire and vocal prowess, in a duet with the fine Indonesian tenor Christopher Abimayu. Together, singing David Foster's emotionally moving "The Prayer", the powerful tenor generously restrained his considerable gifts, finding himself short-handed in delivering a song written for two serious voices.

Soprano Linda Sitinjak, backed by the choir, beautifully delivered Rodgers and Hammerstein's – "You'll Never Walk Alone" with Christopher Abimayu and the choir providing a poignant end to the broadcast singing Barry Manilow's – "One Voice", as the 7,000 attendees held lit candle aloft as a sign of solidarity in the face of the unspeakable evil of only 3 weeks before.

The successful concert, put together in less than 10 days and performed in a the dramatic open air setting of the chalk canyons at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, was sponsored by the Association of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) and Sampoerna cigarettes in cooperation with the United Care for Bali group.
