April 1, 2022 marked a very special day for 12-year-old Rachael Xu, who gave her very first live accordion solo concert at Gade Community Concert Hall in Chengdu, China, to an audience of 200 people.

Rachael played a 11-piece program, varying from classical, light jazz, ethnic, to pop music. Her performance truly captured the hearts of the audience and received a long standing ovation afterwards.
Rachael will donate the 1500 EUR income from ticket sales to the “Global Friends” program of the International Music Council, so that more children globally will have the opportunity to have access to education through music.

This was the first off-line event after the postponement due to the global pandemic. In the following months, Rachael will take her talent to many other cities across China and Asia, thereby also working towards her goal of donating 10,000 Euro to IMC on this year to year tour.

The global pandemic has slowed down the pace of events, but not her desire and determination to use her talent to support the Five Music Rights.
Rachael was born and raised in the city of Chengdu, hometown of the giant pandas, located in Southwest China. She is currently a 6th grader at Chengdu Montpellier International Primary School.
