Our Secondary students bolstered a meaningful effort for the visually impaired

On September 25th, a group of Secondary students from BIS Hanoi launched a music documentary titled ‘Darkness to Light’ as part of their community project called 'Silver Lining'. The project aims to give those who are less fortunate a platform to express themselves through music.  

The documentary featured the visually impaired students from Nguyen Dinh Chieu school in Hanoi, highlighting their enthusiasm and devotion to music, as well as their behind-the-scenes stories. The audience will be taken on an emotional journey from the beginning to the end of the film as they watch some beautiful performances by the students and listen to how they overcome obstacles and go above and beyond to pursue their passion for music.  

As the name implies, 'Darkness to Light' is a virtual stage that brings the talent of visually impaired students into the light and closer to the audience. It has offered an amazing chance for the young people to demonstrate their consistent effort in music, from singing to playing musical instruments. On another level of significance, music here also becomes a source of light for the performers who have never seen life through their eyes but through the warm and clean sound.

Music is the source of light, love, and inspiration; it also opens doors of opportunities to a brighter future. Through music, I want people to realise that the blind artists are extremely talented and admirable, and they can contribute to the society just as much as sighted people. Nguyen Bao (Year 13), founder of the project

Another key message that the project members sought to convey through ‘Silver Lining’ is equality in music. The students believe that music is for everyone, regardless of race, colour, gender, or disability. There is no barrier that can stop anyone from accessing the music world as we listen and feel the music with our hearts.
