「台南樂集」於2014年成立,並連續榮獲「2018、2019臺南市傑出演藝團隊」。團長暨音樂總監杜潔明先生,出生於臺南市,自返鄉著手推動國樂教學與發展,深耕於府城已三十餘年。除了致力於教育外,有感於多年來府城在地的文化底蘊極為豐富,近二十年國樂演奏人才輩出,遂偕同執行長賴秀宜女士成立「台南樂集」,提供府城的青年演奏家們定期演出的舞台。

樂團成立至今,為使節目內涵更豐富多元並磨練團員自我提昇,每年邀請兩岸四地知名演奏家合作並與臺灣當代藝術團體交流演出,所舉辦的音樂會與講座,深受各方愛樂者的喜愛與迴響。

在歷時數年的摸索與耕耘後,確立四個項目作為持續的發展方向:

一、藝術性的「年度製作」:以"70人大型國樂團”與”絲竹室內樂”兩種形式,每年至少各製作一檔節目。

二、公益性的「關懷演出」。

三、偏鄉紮根「育成計畫」

四、「委約創作」累積樂團特色作品。

臺南是個文化薈萃的古都,樸實的生活風貌及其深厚的學術底蘊為樂團的藝術發展提供無盡的養分。作為一個在地樂團,對於音樂與藝術在地方文化的整體發展上,我們期許能以承先啟後之姿,帶給觀眾的更美好體驗。

Tainan Chinese Orchestra Brief Introduction

“Tainan Chinese Orchestra” was established in 2104 and won the “Best Group Performance in Tainan City” consecutively in 2018 and 2019.

Mr. Chieh-Ming Tu, the chief and music direction of the group, was born in Tainan City. He has devoted himself in teaching and development of classical Chinese music for over thirty years after returning back to Tainan, his hometown. Due to abundant cultural resources in Tainan and growing talents in classical Chinese music in nearly twenty years, he invited Mrs. Hsiu-Yi Lai, the CEO of the group, to establish “Tainan Chinese Orchestra” that serves as the media for young artists to have regular performance opportunities.

After several years of exploration and cultivation, we have established the following four aspects for future sustainable developments: The“Yearly Production” for artists purpose: Producing two forms of music performances, “Sizhu Chinese Music Ensemble” and “Chinese Orchestra”, at least once each on an annual basis, and strengthening interactions across different cities and counties.

The “Benefit Concert” for charity purpose: Performing regularly at the elderly care centers and the opportunity centers. The “Incubation Project” rooted in suburban areas: Initiated by the group, planning and assisting in fund raising, providing musical instruments and teachers, so that the students of the suburban towns have opportunities to learn music and practice performing.

“Authorized Composition”: Accumulating more self-made composition pieces for the group.

Since the establishment of Tainan Chinese Orchestra, in order to enrich and diversify the contents of the program, as well asl to hone the growth of our members, we have invited well-known musicians across the Taiwan straits and contemporary art groups for cooperative performing each year. There have been more than 30 concerts and lectures held in just a few years, and had incredibly huge positive feedbacks from all music lovers from all over Taiwan.
