The CCCS 2020 New Year’s Concert: “Home Is Where the Heart Is”【歸宿】-劍橋合唱團2020新年音樂會,用音樂帶你回家

The Cambridge Chinese Choral Society (CCCS), the premier Chinese-language choral group in the Greater Boston area, presents its 2020 New Year’s concert. Our music director, Dr. Yufen Yen, will lead the CCCS to perform its 2020 New Year’s concert “Home Is Where the Heart Is”, painting a picture of what “home” is to our members and audience through a heartwarming selection of choral music on themes of family, friendship, and community. The program will feature many contemporary compositions revolving around these themes, including The Seal Lullaby, Glow, and This Marriage by the well-known choral composer Eric Whitacre. Ubi Caritas by Ola Gjeilo, inspired by Gregorian chants, reflects upon our love for each other and for God, while Please Stay by Jake Runestad provides a powerful reminder that we can all make a difference to those around us battling their inner demons. The CCCS has also selected songs popularized by the Shanghai Rainbow Chamber Singers, such as the heartwarming remembrance in Grandma and the inner dialogue of a secret crush in I Like. Regardless of what “home” is to you, “Home Is Where the Heart Is” is definitely the concert of the year that you do not want to miss!

Date/Time: Saturday Jan 18th, 7:30pm
Location: United Parish Brookline
210 Harvard St., Brookline, MA 02446.
Tickets: $10 early bird (last day 1/15), $15 regular

MIT CCCS 2019 Spring Concert: Passion and Glory

The MIT Cambridge Chinese Choral Society proudly presents its 2019 spring
concert, “Passion and Glory,” featuring masterworks of European
composers.

Led by music director Dr. Yufen Yen and accompanied by Dr. I-Ying Lin, this
musical journey starts in the Romantic period in Germany where Brahms, with
his sentimental and passionate melody of “Zigeunerlieder,” or “The
Gypsy Songs,” brings us a taste of the happiness and sorrow that spring
from a heart full of love. Afterward, a selection from contemporary British
composer John Rutter explores the mystery and paradox of life. We then
conclude our concert in Baroque Venice with Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria.
Performing with a chamber orchestra, we will bring you the full rendition of
this joyful hymn of praise and worship to God.

Come join us for a magical night of traveling through heaven and earth with
music, and experience the spiritual glory and passion of love that has
resonated with humanity through the centuries.

Passion and Glory – 劍橋合唱團2019春季音樂會

劍橋合唱團本季將演出全系列歐洲作曲家作品,包括韋瓦第「榮耀頌」、布拉姆斯「流浪者之歌」(吉普賽之歌)、及當代英國作曲家暨合唱指揮約翰·盧特的三首合唱小品。
「流浪者之歌」(吉普賽之歌)是浪漫時期作曲家布拉姆斯最有名的聲樂作品之一。全組曲共11首歌,以德文演唱,聲響色彩豐富,全部使用四二拍,展現吉普賽民族的熱情與傷感,本次演出輯選其中四首。
生於義大利威尼斯的韋瓦第,早年曾擔任神職,是巴洛克時期重要多產的作曲家。這首「榮耀頌」的樂譜,在韋瓦第逝世約兩百年後才被發現,目前咸認創作年代是在1713-1717年間,為他當時任教的一所專收女童的孤兒院的聖誕慶典所作。由於本身是小提琴家,伴奏部分可以聆賞到豐富的絃樂音效。賦格的運用、各聲部的競唱、活潑爽朗的樂風與音群,都展現巴洛克時期音樂的豐盈。這也是劍橋合唱團近年開始與職業音樂家合作以來,樂團編制最大的一次演出
時間:5/25(星期六)晚間 7:30
地點:MIT Kresge Auditorium (48 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA)

[前事今聲] – 劍橋合唱團 2018 冬季音樂會,以音樂讀詩

劍橋合唱團今冬將帶來全中文曲目音樂會「前事今聲」,由顏毓芬博士指揮、鋼琴家林宜穎博士伴奏,呈獻黃友棣、周鑫泉、冉天豪三位分別在不同時期活躍於台灣的作曲家,擷取自過去一千兩百年來傳頌於中文世界的詩詞譜寫的作品。詩是故事的載體,兼有文字的精練與聲韻格律之美,不分古今,都是作曲家靈感的泉源。

本次上半場從唐詩宋詞到清代小說「紅樓夢」中出現的小曲,全為重視古典傳統、致力於以音樂弘道的黃友棣作曲;下半場有冉天豪作曲的「風、雪、戀、星」組曲,展現詩人徐志摩自由奔放的熱情;隨著時代的洪流推移,余光中在1970年代旅美期間對外呼應美國反戰潮流與台灣的民歌運動、對內懷抱中年離鄉的自我叩問,被周鑫泉譜成了茫茫風中的「答案」;張曼娟的短文小品「月光箋」,將現代都會裡難以投遞的幽微寂寞,寄託於唯一不變的圓滿。

今聲唱前事,回顧風雲,也聽風月。

時間:12/15(星期六)晚間 7:30
地點:Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church (1555 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138)

MIT CCCS 2018 Spring Concert: 【賦別】Every End is a New Beginning

MIT CCCS 2018 Spring Concert: 【賦別】Every End Is a New Beginning

MIT Cambridge Chinese Choral Society (CCCS), the premier Chinese-language choral group in the Greater Boston area, will perform its 2018 Spring Concert “Every End Is a New Beginning” on Saturday, May 26, 7:30 PM at MIT Kresge Auditorium.

Coinciding with the centennial of the end of World War I and taking place on Memorial Day weekend, the program revolves around themes of parting and remembrance. The centerpiece of the concert is Howard Goodall’s Eternal Light: A Requiem, while the Chinese-language selections give a nod to graduating students and the immigrant community, for whom parting is an inevitable shared experience.

Eternal Light: A Requiem is a contemporary requiem by British composer Howard Goodall that removes the heavier parts about “judgment” and “damnation” the traditional Latin text, replacing them with classical English poems focused on bidding farewell and eternal rest.

Leading up to the requiem are several highly emotional Mandarin and Taiwanese choral classics including The Sojourner by Tyzen Hsiao, To Forget by Huang Yau-tai, and Farewell in City South by Jenny H. Chou and John P. Ordway.

Whether you are an immigrant, veteran, graduating student, or simply interested in choral music, “Every End Is a New Beginning” is promised to be a memorable experience for everyone this Memorial Day weekend.
