Cantus 2017 Why Formosa Singers

WHY Formosa Singers? 2009 年到台北参与音乐节时,当然不忘顺便拜访音乐书局寻找道地的台湾合唱曲和录音。记得当时看到了福尔摩沙合唱团出版的一系列合唱曲感到相当震惊,数量庞大,音乐品质一流。当时的我,福建话可能只会面薄甘不要辣,客家话也因外婆是客家人的缘故听得懂,但不会讲。虽是如此,空空的行李箱,回返新加坡时却塞得满满都是福尔摩沙的华语,台语和客家音乐! 2015 年国际合唱音乐协会主办的澳门世界合唱博览会,让我和我的合唱团有了难得的机会听福尔摩沙合唱团现场表演。我当时听到的福尔摩沙,给我的感觉,是一群真的对诗歌有着深厚的敬爱,细腻地表达诗词。2015年的我,福建话还是很糟糕,但碰巧对望春风还算熟悉,也因他们的歌声而感动万分。他们是怎么做到的?我邀请他们的指挥苏庆俊老师喝杯茶,因对音乐,教育和美食有着共同的热诚而一拍即合! 在一个高压竞争的社会中,凡事要求更大,更快,更高…痴迷于统计数据,如何提高回报,如何完成指定目标… 我们该如何衡量艺术品质和音乐表演中的感动和诚意?人们如何量化人类的精神?在人们似乎没有任何时间的时代里, 人们是否能全神贯注地听完两个小时的音乐会,如果人们愿意用心学习聆听,是否能听出表演中那激荡人心的细腻情感呢? 身为成长于”讲华语”运动的年代,我们真的应该听听福尔摩沙合唱团的演唱。随着新加坡庆祝52年独立,我真诚地希望通过这次的音乐会,人们可以再次开始聆听并欣赏我们(祖)母语的美和其存在的价值。 前进吧新加坡! 郑维诚 (Albert Tay) 柯大宜音乐学院院长 新加坡习唱堂艺术总监 WHO?
