2020 TAIWANfest | The Island and the Maple Leaf

The Island that yearns to gain recognition and bring joy; the Maple Leaf that hopes to leave behind a bright future.
Led by conductor Nicholas Urquhart, the Vancouver orchestra Harmonia is joined by Indigenous youth ensemble Chin-Ai String Orchestra for “The Island and the Maple Leaf”, an evening of cultural conversations through music. The repertoire follows the theme of the Taiwanese’s aspiration to spread joy around the world, and the Canadians’ pursuit to nurture a promising future for the country. These ambitions go hand in hand and join together to inspire everyone who has been affected by the world’s crisis.
This virtual concert is available for two days only starting Sept 5th on https://vancouvertaiwanfest.ca/concert/

HALF/ASIAN with Amy the CODA #ShowcaseBC Live Performance

Originally we were going to be performing at Tiny Lights Festival then that had to be postponed. Then we were supposed to go and facilitate a yoga retreat with Ascend Mountain Yoga but we had to cancel our tour. So instead we are streaming a live concert. We are thrilled to be able to open up the live-stream for free to our online community because of the generous support of Creative BC through the #showcasebc program.
