The 29th CCSR Annual Concert

The Chinese Choral Society of Rochester (CCSR) presented its 29th Annual Concert on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 7:30PM at the Penfield High School Auditorium. The concert theme was Seasons of Songs, featuring music of each season containing traditional art songs and folk songs from mainland China, Taiwan, America, and other European countries, all performed in English or Mandarin. Most of the repertoires were performed with a special orchestra which consisted of both Eastern and Western instruments: string quintet, timpani, Er-Hu, Chinese flute, Gu-Zhen, and Chinese percussion instruments. Guest performers included Bass-Baritone Caleb Woo, Er-hu Soloist Yingjian Zhao, and Jefferson Road Elementary 4th Grade Chorus singing both Chinese and English songs with Kimberly Minchella conducting. The CCSR chorus was conducted by Music Director David Chin with Pianist Cherry Tsang. It was a wonderful night of music.Check out the review of the concert by Penfield Blog on Democratic and Chronicle.

For the first time in CCSR's history, a slideshow of the lyrics of the songs was presented in both Chinese and English during the concert, which was greatly appreciated by the audience.

The songs and the instrumental music performed in the concert are now available online. You can either download the audio files (mp3 format) or play them online, or watch the concert videos on the Youtube
