Beauty and the Beast - Raffles Alumni CO

I cried listening to this. Especially when the 高胡 (something like the first violin) started playing. There's something about string instruments hitting the high notes that brings out the tears. Makes me miss playing in an orchestra. It's been ages since I touched my 二胡 (something like second violin), and I just miss the feeling of working with everyone in the orchestra to create music. The end makes me especially emotional. You just feel this sense of achievement and the power of teamwork. Doesn't beat completing a novel, of course. More like a short story. And Raffles Alumni Chinese Orchestra is really impressive.
