Let us start this Taiwan Film Festival with music representing “Songs of Taiwan”. Jointly organized by Impression Taiwan and HoHaiYan Arts, the opening concert opens up possibilities for everybody online to hear the sounds of
Taiwan in the form of classical music and, at the same time, presents the music to an international audience so that the beauty of Taiwan becomes more visible.

The Concert highlights a diversity of sounds in
Taiwan. It is our privilege to invite emerging Taiwanese artists having solid classical music background to perform works of Taiwanese composers. We believe it is not only a great opportunity to enhance musical literacy of the citizens, but also to create a sensational moment for the world to enjoy the uniqueness of Taiwanese music. Kind reminder: if you are in Taiwan
(GMT+8), the live-streaming events begin at 20:00 on Facebook.
