    Pyongyang, April 16 (KCNA) -- A performance was given by members of the art group of the Mangyongdae Schoolchildren's Palace Saturday on the occasion of the Day of the Sun. Present there on invitation were foreign guests and overseas Koreans including artistes participating in the 24th April Spring Friendship Art Festival and delegations attending the 8th Kimilsungia Festival.
    The performance began with the song and dance "Biggest Holiday". Put on the stage were colorful numbers such as songs, instrumental music and dances in which the performers truthfully represented their great pleasure of commemorating the Day of the Sun. They impressively depicted their ardent will to hold President Kim Il Sung in high esteem as the eternal sun and always remain loyal to leader Kim Jong Il. In such numbers as dance "We Are Little Young Soldiers of General Kim Jong Il," accordion trio "Pleasant Dance Music" and gymnastic dance "We Are Future Masters" they truthfully represented the admirable and proud appearance of the schoolchildren stoutly growing up to be successors to the revolution who would shoulder upon themselves the future of Songun Korea.
    The performance closed with chorus "Let's Uphold the General, Our Father, by Becoming Knowledgeable, Virtuous and Healthy." The children's presentation won a high acclaim of the audience as it successfully reflected the schoolchildren's intense loyalty and optimism with high artistry.
