New Asia Chamber Music Society’s
Songs of Gratitude 讚頌 Live Virtual Concert

Supervised by Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan)
Organized by Taiwan Academy Houston
Co-Presented by Asia Society Texas Center, Foundation for Chinese Performing Arts, and Miller Outdoor Theater

As we approach to Thanksgiving, we hope to show our gratitude and support on to the front-line medical workers with music, as well as our beloved family who has been with us. The concert starts with the audience’s favorite, Dvorak’s “American” string quartet, followed by the czech composer Josef Suk who is one of Dvorak’s favorite pupils and future son-in-law. Corigliano's string quartet, "Snapshot," is describing his impressions of his father. Mrs. Amy Beach, one of the most accomplished female American composers of the Romantic period. The concert will conclude with an Indigenous tribe song by Taiwanese composer Tyzen Hsiao, who is well-known in Taiwan and around the globe, a way of us to feature Taiwan's native tribe dance music!

在即將到來的感恩節日,又在今年的整個COVID-19疫情,我們希望透過音樂來表現我們對於第一線醫護人員的感恩之外,也對於一直陪在我們身邊的家人們感到無比的欣慰與感謝。感恩節是家人聚在一起的時光,希望這場音樂會可以為身旁的朋友、家人帶來鼓勵,透過這場線上音樂會帶來我們對這個世間的一個『讚頌』。這次挑選了大家耳熟能詳的德佛札克所創作的弦樂四重奏”美國“做開場,捷克作曲家Josef Suk是德佛札克最喜愛的弟子之一,也是未來的女婿。Corgliano創作的弦樂四重奏”Snapshot”是在描述對自己父親的印象。Amy Beach比奇夫人,浪漫時期是最出色的女性作曲家之一。音樂會將會由台灣的蕭泰然所創作的原住民組曲來做結尾,希望藉由這首曲子把享譽台灣以及國際的台灣作曲家蕭泰然大師以及台灣的民族舞曲音樂帶給大家!
