The following poem was written by a fan in Dec. 2010. It has also been translated to English.
In condolences or celebrations,
You will meet them,
Without reward or glory,
Without abundance in materials or facilities,
But in the convictions of the musicians are:
Persistence, diligence, dedication!
From the leaders to the students,
From the elders to the youth,
Knitted together by passion and faith in music,
It takes the soul to play heaven`s melodies,
To enrich the lives of Canadians,
To share the treasures of the Chinese!
They are: Toronto Chinese Orchestra
They deserve my praise:
They are the pride of the Chinese,
The legacy to our children!
