TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Yuan Ru Gallery is hosting "An Evening of Music, Art and Charity" on Jan. 12 with ticket revenue to be donated to the SOS Children's Villages Taiwan.
The Yuan Ru Gallery was founded in 2016 in Songshan District of Taipei City. Julie Hsieh, the director of the gallery, is a doctor who lived in America and returned to Taiwan years ago to enter the art business.

As an artist, a gallery manager, and a former family doctor, Julie believes these three identities have the same purpose, which is to help people. She has been longing to hold charity events in order to help society and vulnerable groups.
The idea for the event "An Evening of Music, Art and Charity" was born during conservations between Julie and her friend Susana Galván, the director of British Council, who has lived in Taiwan for ages and loves to do charity with her husband as well.
The charity concert will include seven beautiful pieces by various musicians including Susana's husband, Sebastian See-Schierenberg, who is also a conductor and a violinist, Julie herself, who has studied vocal for 8 years, and Jackson Chen, a 12-year-old violinist who lives in Australia.

Additionally, the gallery will exhibit multiple artists' works to ensure the audience will be able to enjoy the music and artwork of Lien Chien Hsing , Julie Hsieh, Michael Kalish and more during the event.
The event will be held on Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. with a NT$1000 (US$33) entry fee. Ticket sales will be donated to the SOS Children's Villages Taiwan to help the orphans. For more information please visit the Yuan Ru Gallery website or Facebook page.
