About the Performance
“Catering Party” is a kind of festival culinary culture full of local Taiwanese features. Its unique cultural specialty is the precious cultural asset of culinary customs in Taiwan. The concert “Catering Party” is performed in the form of Chinese wind and percussion
instruments combining with vivid stories. It can vividly present various kinds of interesting activities when chefs are preparing a catering party. By using daily utensils such as pan, bowl, ladle, pot, stove, firewood, desk and chairs and others, it intends to show the unique Taiwanese catering cultures through the integration of the sounds and playing skills in playing traditional percussion instruments. This is to express the boisterous and joyful scenes of local festivities. NCO was highly-acclaimed for this play performed in 2016 and 2017. The classic of the NCO will be put on the stage once again this year. Chang Meng-yi, Taiwanese opera artist and winner of the 2017 Melody Awards for Traditional Arts and Music for Best Actor, will also be invited to take part in the concert, bringing more traditional opera elements into the show. We welcome all of our friends to feel the boisterous and festival atmosphere of “Catering Party”.
