Toronto Chinese Orchestra 多倫多中樂團

Member Profile: Jaimie

Meet Jaimie, the eldest of the Chan sisters power trio.

TCO: How long have you been with the TCO?
J: I have been with TCO for about 5-6 years.

TCO: What keeps you coming back?
J: My father, sisters, and everyone else in the orchestra keep me coming back. I have far too many good memories with many of the members. 😀

TCO: What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing?
J: I currently play the double bass and have been playing it for about 4-5 years.

TCO: How did you get started with this instrument?
J: I actually began with the cello, but I eventually taught myself how to play the bass since there was no one to fill in the position in the orchestra. 😛

TCO: What other instruments do you play?
J: I also play the cello.

TCO: Other activities that you enjoy on spare time?
J: Volleyball, badminton, and eating (especially mango-related food, Korean food, and Japanese food!).

TCO: Anything you’d like to share with other TCO members and fans that come to the concerts?
J: Mango is the most awesome fruit in the world! 😀 Just kidding.
I want to thank all the members who continue to put in their time and effort to make beautiful Chinese music. I am also extremely appreciative of those who come to our concerts every year — we definitely wouldn’t be here without your support.
