今年是我們室內樂團第四年參加橙縣台灣傳統週系列活動 — 音樂台灣 : 古典與新潮。

今年我們樂團新增 Recorder (木笛) 來演奏巴哈的樂曲。Mary Van Cott-Hand 客座參加木笛演出。年輕的團員組成絃樂四重奏、提昇選曲的高度技巧。首次與福爾摩沙之愛合唱團合作、我們樂團伴奏月夜愁、由林麗貞女高音獨唱。

我們樂團歡迎有志於推廣台灣民謠與古典音樂的音樂家參加我們的團隊。

We are grateful to Mr. Peter Yang who had done excellent video recordings for the performance of our Ensemble.

Embracing Community

Since 2013, NTU Alumni Chamber Ensemble (NTUACE) started to play in the Sunday Worship at the Tustin Taiwan Presbyterian Church, in various community events and in family music parties.
