多倫多中樂團踏入第十六年了,在一個樂團來說,這不算得很長,在我們的團員來說,卻是經歷了很多的日子。今天喜見樂團逐漸成長,必須感謝團員的努力,更感謝音樂總監彭進秀先生的悉心教導和無比耐性。過去一年,我們的活動可算非常緊密。去年《豐收鑼鼓樂韻揚》音樂會後,團員便忙於準備一年一度的試音。十一月一日, 我們舉行的一個室樂演奏會,每一位團員都必須參與最少一個項目,通過室樂的演奏,團員都增強了合奏的合作性,可謂獲益良多。接著便開始今天音樂會的籌備和排練。除了一些大大小小的演出外,於去年十月初,樂團的五位團員更遠負香港,參加了《香港國際中樂節》,與來自世界各地的中樂團交流。 今天的音樂會,我們很榮幸邀請了阮演奏家苗曉芸老師及笛演奏家周金美博士(Dr. Kim Chow-Morris) 為我們演奏多首獨奏樂曲。苗老師演奏的大阮獨奏和中阮協奏,周博士演奏的葫蘆絲獨奏和巴烏獨奏,都是多倫多很少能夠欣賞到的,非常難得。 去年音樂會,因剛發生了四川大地震,我們發起了捐款運動,團員和樂團一共籌得兩千加元,音樂會當晚,觀眾亦踴躍捐款,整晚共籌得三千多加元,捐與加拿大世界宣明會。我們覺得作為一個社區樂團,我們應該繼續盡我們的所能,參與公益事務,因此,今天的音樂會部分收入,將撥捐加拿大世界宣明會作慈善用途,觀眾在欣賞音樂的同時,又能幫到有需要的人,可謂賞心樂事。 This is our orchestra’s 16th anniversary! It is not a very long time in the history of an orchestra, but for our members,…
