Harvard University’s Krokodiloes thrilled all the students at Soong Ching Ling School with an afternoon of singing, performances and classroom visits.
Arriving in Shanghai just a few days before, they quickly got into the pace of the SCLS student life. They of course love the school (it was their third year to visit SCLS).
During the concert, they delighted the SCLS students with a wide variety of popular American songs including House of Blue Lights, The Shaker Songand That Old Black Magic. New elements such as Swing, Jazz and Tap dance were introduced into the performance which gave us a brand-new feeling. Krokodiloes especially prepared Chinese songs such as the Moon Represents My Heart, Tong Hua and Mo Li Hua that students cannot help singing.
Students admire Krokodiloes members not only by their song performance but also their passion, energy, concentration and devotion. During question and answer section, students asked Krokodiloes members various questions such as What’s their major? Where do they come from? Where does the name of Krokodiloes come from? What brings Krokodiloes members together? What’s their favorite things except singing?
Krokodiloes members also interested in the history, education philosophy of Soong Ching Ling School as well as student’s campus life. They even checked the classwork of grade 1 students carefully! Maybe someday they will try to become a primary school teacher!
About Harvard Krokodiloes
The Krokodiloes are a 12 member group of A Capella singers. The singers are currently in Harvard’s school of economics, chemistry, computer science, psychology, government, social studies, regenerative biology, astrophysics, human developmental and applied mathematics. Members of the Krokodiloes must be positive and happy, devote 20 hours a week to rehearsals, “pull their share” of the work, be team players and keep their voice in good shape. The gentlemen are also active in doing community service, participating in sports, tutoring other students, attending classes and yes, studying.
What a wonderful experience all the SCLS students had…it was magical, intellectual, creative, musical and exploratory. It was a full and exciting experience and we all look forward to having the Krokodiloes back next year.
