Event

Taiwan Impression
This concert showcases Taiwanese folk melodies and works by Taiwanese composers, performed by Taiwan's premiere ensemble "The Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra" and members of Vancouver's own BC Chinese Orchestra.

The Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra ("gCO") was founded in October 2000 by its artistic director and conductor Chih-Sheng Chen. With over ten years of experience, the gCO has matured into an ensemble of both technical and artistic proficiency. A strong musical force in Taiwan, it represents a new generation of Chinese orchestral music. It strives to demonstrate the energy and passion of its dedicated musicians with every performance. The gCO breathes new life into an art form that holds ancient roots, and devotes itself to promoting Chinese music on the world stage.

The gCO's repertoire ranges from the classics of Chinese traditional works to the latest contemporary compositions by Taiwanese and Chinese composers.  The orchestra also collaborates frequently with the Atlas Ensemble in Amsterdam and Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra, commissioning or performing original works by North American and European composers. The gCO offers a full season of about thirty concerts a year at the prestigious National Concert Hall in Taiwan, presenting both the full orchestra of over one hundred musicians and smaller chamber ensembles throughout the year. In recent years, the orchestra has presented large-scale interdisciplinary projects, combining theatre and multimedia with orchestral music.


co-presented by the Sound of Dragon Society and Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Society
