Zhang Haidi, president of the China Disabled Person's Federation, wrote in her greeting message that over the years many visually impaired people have got rid of poverty and enjoyed the benefit brought by better and wider cover of barrier-free environment.

They endeavor with great difficulties, showing extraordinary perseverance to learn and work, and have created a colorful spiritual life. Many of them have the talent beyond imagination, which is really inspiring, Zhang said.

Gan Bolin, a well-known visually-impaired erhu player and former honorary chairman of China Association of the Blind, in a video he sent to celebrate the concert encouraged visually impaired music practitioners to learn hard and called for more support to these music talents especially providing more job opportunities and a better career environment.
