Loop 38,是女兒和一幫青年音樂家共組的一個室內樂團,12月6日晚7點半,休士頓MATCH Gallery全新登場!

為何取名Loop38? 據蜂鳥採訪共同創團者Yvonne說,Loop是休士頓人眾所周知的環城道路,全長共38英里,正好,17名成員因緣際會,從四面八方落腳國境之南,正好,都住在Loop內圈。

這群「圈內人」,有志一同,為古典音樂邁向新紀元開發新元素、激盪新的火花,也將為這個全美第四大城的文化圈,帶來新氣象。

下面附上MUSIQA Houston新聞一則,對於Loop38的源起,有更詳盡的說明。

There is a new contemporary music ensemble in town, and it aspires to introduce a whole new sound and level of musicianship to Houston. Loop38 — a 17-person collective of passionate, virtuosic musicians co-founded and by conductor Jerry Hou and pianist Yvonne Chen — presents its debut concert, “Loop38 Live” Tuesday, December 6, at 7:30pm at the MATCH Gallery.

Before settling in Houston, Chen had spent her undergraduate studies at Juilliard as a soloist inspired by the innovation and drive of the large ensembles that reside in New York City. Hou, on the other hand, had collaborated with many of the leading composers of the day and developed a knack for interpreting new music, working with groups such as Ensemble Modern (Frankfurt).

By May 2016, Chen was in the midst of her doctoral studies and Hou had finished another year as Associate Conductor at the Shepherd School of Music. Chen and Hou had performed new music together in concerts at school and for Musiqa and discovered that there is a fantastic repertoire of contemporary music particularly for large ensembles that isn’t being performed in Houston. The idea of founding a ensemble began to take hold.

“Once we started talking about it with friends and peers, we found ourselves with a group of virtuosic musicians eager to showcase their talents with these technically and musically demanding pieces,” said Hou. “Our members come from all different parts of the world, with the desire to share their unique experiences and perspectives in music with the Houston community.” 

“Our size gives Loop38 the flexibility of a large ensemble,” stated Chen, “while mimicking both the richness of a full orchestra and the intimacy of a chamber group.”

“We’re proud to support the launch of Loop38,” stated Musiqa artistic director, Anthony Brandt. “Another group of talented, energetic musicians committed to contemporary classical music demonstrates Houston is a destination for innovation and overflows with creative vitality.”

是不是很厲害,要6日演出完才知曉.

但,絕對是很認真、很執著、很可愛的一群年輕音樂人.
