At this special moment, IBA Surabaya would like to share their happiness by donating all the profits from the concert to Panti Asuhan Marganingsih and Seminari Menengah St. Vincentius A. Paulo.

Sebastian Wilbert Basuki, a 10 years old boy, then continued the program with Kabalevsky Piano Concerto No.3 in D Major. The next programs, O Divine Redeemer and Granada, were sung by guest Tenor, Rubin Lukito. Nitya Primantari and Cosmas Sebastian Atmadja closed the 1st half of the concert with Chopin Piano Concerto in F minor and Totentanz by Franz Liszt respectively.
The 2nd half of the concert contained an interesting collaboration of two pianos, IBA orchestra, and ballet dances, performing the well-known composition by Camille Saint-Saëns, Le Carnaval des Animaux.
