Calgary Chinese Orchestra will be hosting a special holiday concert on December 8th, 2019 at 6pm, featuring our young guest conductor Bang Zhang.
The repertoires — hand-picked by Zhang —showcases his unique tastes in Chinese ensemble music. Mixed with classics like Spring River in the Flower Moon Night (春江花月夜), Dance of the Yao People (瑤族舞曲), and popular TV theme from The Grand Mansion Gate (大宅門), you’ll be hearing some newly composed and arranged works.
We are also thrilled to have guest performers from University of Calgary World Music Ensemble. Directed by Dr. Rod T. Squance, the World Music Ensemble taps into ethnic cultural music from around the world, including Trinidadian steel drums, Balinese shadow theatre music and kecak, Indian classical raga music, Japanese taiko drumming, Arabic popular songs and Sundanese gamelan.
For the past 20 years, CCO has been a hub attracting like-minded people to share their passion of Chinese music with the local community. The sound created by the diverse array of Chinese instruments is indescribable.
