Dear Members, Parents and Staff,
We are glad to announce that:
Youth Orchestra, CYCNY will be joining with Da-Feng Elementary
School Alumni Youth Orchestra to tour at Tokyo area of Japan, playing a
concert at Tokyo College of Music (July 3rd) and a concert in Taipei
or New Taipei City (July 6th). The updated itinerary is in the attachment.
The Music Director and Conductor will be Dr. Jeffrey Liang,
who was YOC Conductor from 1999-2010. Music Director from
2002-2012. We appreciate Jeffrey's 13 years of serving
YOC will be responsible for the managing and
concert expenses of the Tokyo Concert, while Da-Feng Alumni Youth Orchestra
will be responsible for the concert in Taiwan. Although Da-Feng has more than 30
members going already, while YOC has about 10 members going so far. The concert
will have enough members to perform.
Our sponsor in Japan might ask Tokyo College of Music to
present some program of their students at the Tokyo Concert on July 3rd for
cultural exchange experience,
We credit our past many successful concert tours to Music
Director Jeffrey Linag, Executive Directors Rosalind Chia and Anita
Lin of YOC and Jacy Meng of COTSNY. Without them, it is hard to have a
Our last tour was on 2012 to Osaka and Taiwan, at that
tour Jeffrey and Anita were still with us. It is hard to arrange tour if not
enough musicians are going, luckily, Jeffrey could move members to concert tour,
at the end of March, 2015, Jeffrey took 150 members and parents and siblings to
Singapore for concert tour.
This is a good chance to meet our Counterparts of Taiwan
and Japan on stage and on tour. Not to mention
sightseeing Tokyo and be arranged by Jacy Meng of COTSNY. It is some travel agency that we can trust and we have been seeing his
travel agency developed into one of the best and biggest in our community.
I know many of our members have other engagements for the
If you know someone who wants to join us. please refer our
tour to him or her.
The music program level for tour would not be
as difficult as YOC 2014-15 concert programs.

the same scores that New York Philharmonic and other professional
orchestras are playing?
