"This Life, This Lifetime" concert was intended to be performed in August, 2020, but it was delayed until 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first concert of the JHF Choir since its establishment in 2019. We hope that you will come to this special concert and enjoy the performance.
This concert is special in multiple ways:
The program consists of songs from the repertoire of Ching-Ju Shih, a well-known composer born in Taiwan. The lyrics of the songs are in Mandarin, Taiwanese, Hakka and English.
The articulation of each song was guided by the composer Ching-Ju Shih herself and the late conductor Bor-Jen Lin; It was continued by the joint effort of several choir members and outstanding singers who have been trained professionally. This collaboration has allowed the group to sing with an unusual conducting arrangement that pays tribute to the late conductor.
The choir weathered through the pandemic period using various virtual choir technologies. Though the technologies have not been perfect, the continuing virtual rehearsals helped to keep the majority of the members together, which made this concert possible.
