Their first song was Waves of Gulangyu Islands, during whose performance, Miss Lu acted as the leading singer and conductress and the whole chorus were 20 plus women. The performance was very artistic and eye-nailing. Their second song (NNU Anthem) won great applause when 10 men joined the chorus. When the last line of the song "Great fame echoes in the world" was sung out, four male songsters raised their signs: "Love Our NNU"!
Amongst the songsters were seen College Chancellor Xihe Jiang, Vice Dean Tiesong Zheng, Nutrition Chair Tao Zhou, English Chair Yunzhi Zhu, guitarist-singer Hong Ye, Youth League Secretary Jian Gao, Instructor of Japanese Ying Huang, etc.
