Vox Nativa, known as Taiwan’s Vienna Boys Choir, and Taiwan’s only aboriginal strings orchestra Chinai Strings Orchestra will perform together in Hsinchu County for the first time at the 2015 Building Love Concert, held at the Performance Hall of the Cultural Affairs Bureau of Hsinchu County at 7:30 pm on the evening of December 5. Magistrate Chiu Ching-chun invites everyone to give the children from aboriginal villages an enthusiastic support and a warm welcome. All ticket proceeds from the concert will be donated to the two groups.
During the concert, one of the songs Vox Nativa will be performing is Widerspruch (contradiction in German), the greatest hits of Vienna Boys Choir, which they sang with the 517-year old choir during an exchange visit to Europe in September this year.
Vox Nativa will also perform the well-known song Jasmine Flower for the first time in Taiwan. For this cultural exchange with Austria, music producer Ran Tian-hao was commissioned to rearrange the song and it became a highly challenging four-tone a cappella. Chinai Strings Orchestra will perform the Atayal Overture, inspired by traditional Atayal songs, and an aboriginal song compilation that will include parts of six songs, including the well-known My Home is Naruwan.
The organizer, Hsinchu Building Love Association, was formed early this year. Its directors include people who work in the high-tech industry as well as people from the music, architecture, legal and business fields; all uphold contributions to society and promoting the cultural and arts aesthetic education of young people. Successfully inviting two renowned groups to perform at the first concert is a notable achievement.
