Xi’an Symphony Orchestra Chorus
If there is a kind of instrument which has the characteristics of natural, rich and changeable, the only answer is human voice. Because of singing, we convey tender feelings, express minds and chant ambitions, to make the language more pleasant, to make the melody more understandable. Because of chorus, we come together, correspond with each other, become rich and harmonious. We release our hearts through the flow of songs and come close to the faith, also achieve mutual understanding and appreciation through the flow.
A city needs a representative chorus to communicate with the world, to attract more professional chorus groups from abroad to interaction. This is the original intention of the establishment of the Xi'an Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and also our vision.
Our members are selected from the colleges of music and their chorus. The standards of building and recruitment is not only professional, but also outstanding. Our performances go beyond the singles and concerts. We also want to shine the pearl on the crown of stage art, the opera, by our singing.
Only professionalization can make us sing more professionally, and only by professionalization can we go further, which we know quite well. October 2017, Shaanxi Grand Theatre was up and open. This is also the first year of our birth. The self-rehearsed opera Turandot was used to commemorate the birth of the chorus.
Several years later, when the members of Xi’an Symphony Orchestra Chorus think of the year 2018, they may miss the persistent and courageous attempts, and the loud applause reverberated in the hall for long time.
In 2018, we established great communication with the friends who loves vocal music and chorus in Xi’an. We visited the solemn and solemn halls, traveled the pure and fresh mountains; we worshiped the inspirations of renaissance masters, deplore the hard-Red Course of forefathers.
In this cherish year, the mature fellows return to the familiar home field of the Grand Theatre to show the opera groups as it should be. The combination of free singing and skillful cooperation is the perfect summary of this year. “Turandot” stepped out of the gloomy and cold palace; “Carmen” brought boldly and hot dance. The audiences and love are like two free birds. When the curtain falls, the birds don't want to fly away; when the show starts, they always fly back.
