Come celebrate with us as we present our 30th Anniversary concert, SOAR, showcasing traditional and contemporary works for Chinese orchestra. All our repertoire are Canadian premieres, with one of the earliest works for the traditional Chinese orchestra, Variations on Xinshuiling (1925) by LIU Tianhua, the imaginative Re-So-La-Re (2012) by HUANG Xincai, and an excerpt from WANG Danhong’s Ode to the Sun (2015). We will also present Singaporean composer WANG Chenwei’s We Soar (2013), the inspiration for our concert theme, and his medley Remembering Teresa Teng (2017). Finally, the powerful New Dragon Dance (2012) by XU Changjun will feature our percussion leader, Bobby Ho and his team, with special guests from the Community Music Schools of Toronto. Join us as we explore the wonderful world of Chinese orchestral music led by conductor Jonathan Wong and associate conductor Mike Liu.
