Taiwan New Year’s Concert—Expand its Global Reach
Jointly organized by One Song Orchestra, the StanShih Foundation, and Formosa TV, the 2023 “Sounds of Taiwan—New Year’s Concert” has hit its 5-year mark. The Concert opens up possibilities for citizens to hear the sounds of Taiwan in the form of classical music, and at the same time, presents the music to international audience so that the beauty of Taiwan becomes more visible.
The Concert highlights a diversity of sounds in Taiwan: including original works with Taiwanese elements created by specially invited Swiss composers, new works by Taiwanese composers, traditional Peking Opera, indigenous music, etc. The three colors emblematic of Taiwan used in the poster are Formosa red, blue, and gold. Elements associated with classical music such as the shape of a violin, musical notes, and staves are also incorporated. This modern visual design intends to leave a lasting brand impression when it is promoted overseas.
Music is one of the most accessible cultural aspects in people’s lives. “Sounds of Taiwan“ is performed by emerging Taiwanese artists, using classical music as the language of international communication, to perform works that belong to Taiwan. We believe it is not only a great opportunity to enhance musical literacy of the citizens, but also to create a sensational night for the world to enjoy the uniqueness of Taiwanese music.
I look forward to making “Sounds of Taiwan—New Year’s Concert” from the East will continue to accumulate popularity and gain influence, and may one day be recognized as an Eastern counterpart of the Vienna New Year's Concert in the West, so that the "Sounds of Taiwan—Across the Globe" will become one of the most representative New Year's concerts in the world.
As the Chairman of the One Song Orchestra Fan Club, I am calling for more fans to join the Friends of One Song. Let us stand with the Orchestra as it strives to spread the music of Taiwan to a wider and global audience. Let us stay tuned to the Orchestra. It is my firm belief that more people will hear the sounds of Taiwan!
