Toronto TAIWANfest New World Concert

Vancouver Metropolitan
Orchestra Founder

Since the pandemic, the concept of normalcy has adapted a “new normal” for people on earth. Movements of people have been restricted like never before and relationships between people have been reimagined; we seem to be on a journey to a New World together.  Maestro Ken Hsieh and the TAIWANfest Orchestra are going to celebrate the all-time great movements of people through the works such as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, Dvořáks’ Symphony No. 9, An Era of Unsung Heroes(Justice in Time), as well as Arirang, a song speaking about leaving and reunion, sorrow, joy and happiness.

If the great Beethoven could un-dedicate his Third Symphony to Napoleon, why can’t we revisit the perceptions and understandings of our own culture or other cultures in Asia? Throughout the existence of humanity, people explore, experiment and evolve generations after generations. Some of these greatest movements have been exemplary and inspiring for the new generations as they continue to create a vision for their New World.
