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.

團員專訪:周慶瑛 Julia Jou                        


My name is Julia Jou and I am an alto in the choir.  I have been a member of CCCS since 1998. I work for state government as the Budget Director for the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education.

I didn’t have any choir experience before I joined CCCS other than attending music class in elementary school. I enjoy listening to many kinds of music so appreciate the variety of music we sing in the choir ranging from classical to Broadway.

I joined the choir because I wanted to meet more friends in the Chinese community after having grown up mostly in United States.  My parents had operated a restaurant in Somerville at the time and one of the customers was a member and told me about CCCS and encouraged me to join.

I have become good friends with many of the members in the choir over the last 18 years and stayed in touch with several of them even after they have left the choir.   We would have a mini CCCS reunion whenever I visit Taiwan.  I had a difficult time at the beginning singing the alto part. I often ended up singing some of the soprano part because the melody is either more familiar or easier to follow. Fortunately with the help of fellow Alto members and conductors, I learned to sing the Alto part more consistently now.  I am also part of the Cambridge Ensemble which performs separate pieces in the concert as well as representing CCCS in outside performances.

I have been involved in the management of the choir both as treasurer (past and present) and as president.  When I was president, the choir was down to 12 members (mostly women) since so many members had left and we weren’t able to recruit new ones.  I didn’t give up on the choir because I enjoyed singing in the choir and I could tell how much the community appreciates our performances.

I am happy to see the number of new members who are willing to contribute their time and effort to raise funds for the choir and promote CCCS to a wider audience. I believe that CCCS will only get stronger in the future with the support of its members.

團員專訪:徐子宜 Ziyi Xu 





劍橋合唱團的氣氛融洽,每個人都非常友善。大家來自各行各業,有著不同的生活經歷,這些並沒有妨礙到團員之間的相處,反而讓各自更加珍惜每週五的排練。在我看來,每週五的排練是一個學習的過程,學習如何與他人相處以及如何配合其他聲部和聲,我個人非常享受。特別重要的是, 團員對於音樂的熱愛以及團內工作的配合,尤其是指揮、團長和委員會對每季演唱會的精心安排,讓我覺得劍橋合唱團有非常強的凝聚力和生命力。
