Handel’s “Sarabande” may origin from Corelli’s “La Folia”, a famous music piece spanned for 400 years.

2007 Annual Recital

NTU Chamber group historically hosts an annual recital of remembrance & Thanksgiving to serve the community. The annual recital provided an opportunity for the students to perform in public. It provided a platform for the musicians to learn from each other and the event also served as a social gathering for the parents and the teachers. Besides annual recital, the group performed in churches, in Chinese festivals and homes of the group members and friends. Sometimes, the group was invited to perform in supporting the recitals from the other musical groups.

This year's annual recital was held at Irvine Presbyterian Church on October 5th.
