About the Performance

“Singing songs of Formosa, songs of Taiwan, our homeland, is our way to sing out our hope.” It is with this spirit, that Formosa Singers presents the audience Songs of Formosa. By performing songs particularly meaningful to the local community in the chorus, the group aims to introduce Taiwanese songs to a greater audience, make new friends with music, and share what it has achieved in promoting Taiwanese choral music over the years with more music lovers on the island.

In the concert, in addition to a number of choral classics of western origin, a wide variety of local pieces covering Taiwanese, Hakka, and indigenous Taiwanese tunes will also be performed. Formosa Singers, the performing group, has been dedicated to creating and publishing rearranged Taiwanese ballads and songs on a regular basis.
