Toronto Chinese Orchestra 多倫多中樂團

About Us 關於我們

多倫多中樂團乃非牟利團體,成立於一九九三年,由一群熱衷於推動中國民族音樂的人士所組成。樂團於九三年八月在萬錦市萬錦劇院舉行了首場絲竹管弦夜中樂演奏會,由於反應熱烈,給予樂團極大的鼓舞,同時亦肯定了本地廣大民族音樂愛好者的存在。樂團成立後除參與各類型推廣民族音樂的演出外亦積極參與社區的慈善活動,為此地學校、社團、電台、電視及不同族裔社區作民樂的演出。現有樂團成員超過四十人,均是具備一定演奏水平的中樂愛好者。為提高樂團的水平,除堅持定期排練外,多年來不斷邀請國內、外專業演奏家參與演出及與不同風格的指揮家合作,為團員提供多方面的嘗試及學習機會。現時多倫多中樂團已成為加國具規模的民族管弦樂團,亦為本地少數能演奏大型中樂作品的樂團。

Toronto Chinese Orchestra is a non-profit organization established in 1993 by a group of Chinese traditional music enthusiasts. TCO is the largest Chinese orchestra in Ontario and the longest running in Canada. Members include professional and amateur musicians trained in Asia as well as Canada.

讚《多倫多中樂團》

抗震救災、年節慰問,
人們常會見到這様一個群體,
這裏没有報酬和榮譽,
缺乏充裕的財力和設備,
可在幾十位音樂人的執着信念中:
從不言敗、堅持演練、無私奉獻﹗
從團、指到學生、從白髮到娃娃,
同被對音樂的鍾愛和信念的追求吸引,
要用自己心靈去演奏天籟之音,
豐富加國的多元文化,
傳播美好的中華文明!
這就是:《多倫多中樂團》
它是我心目中當之無愧的:
華人的驕傲,
炎黄好子孫!

In Praise of Toronto Chinese Orchestra

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!
