The Consul General of the German Consulate General in Shenyang City, the leaders of Jilin Provincial Foreign Affairs Bureau andthe Culture and Education Bureau of Changchun Economic and TechnologicalDevelopment Zone Management Committee attended the concert. 

10 月25日晚,为庆祝中华人民共和国成立70周年、纪念柏林墙倒塌30周年,由长春市德国学校协会与长春美国国际学校携手精心打造的“东方遇见西方”音乐会 在长春美国国际学校精彩上演。德国驻沈阳总领事馆总领事、吉林省外专局及长春市经开区管委会文教局领导亲临音乐会现场。

It started with "Full of Joy", a kind of traditional folk music with ajoyful melody full of jubilation. Subsequently, other examples of songs such as"Every Step Higher", "Full Moon and Blooming Flowers" were performed. After the Folk music, "Mozart Serenade","Hungarian Dances" and other classic symphonic music repertoires were staged. The gentle and sonorous symphonies, cooperate with our Chinese ancient folk music, as if to take us to roam in the east and the west culture, let us to understand and appreciate different experience from these beautiful notes.

      演出在节奏欢快、充满喜庆的传统民乐《喜洋洋》中拉开帷幕,接着《步步高》、《花好月圆》等民乐曲目轮番上演。就在观众们刚刚体验完民乐的温婉悠扬后,经典交响乐《莫扎特小夜曲》《匈牙利舞曲》等曲目仿佛又将观众们带入了另一种感官体验。时而柔美,时而铿锵的交响乐,配合我们中国古风民乐,仿佛带我们遨游在东方与西方的文化中,让我们尽情体会和欣赏由这些美好音符带来的不同体验。


The classic interludes in some movies such as "Captain America", "Scent ofWoman" and "Spirited Away" were unforgettable. Each music repertoire was about a story and each melody represented memory. "Heroic Polonaise in A-flat minor" and "Habanera" were played by two parents which made the atmosphere unforgettable. It perfectly ended with"My Motherland and me" jointly performed by all musicians.

一 段音符,一段记忆—《美国队长》《闻香识女人》《千与千寻》等电影中的经典插曲令人难以忘怀,也勾起了所有观众的美好回忆。由我校学生家长带来的钢琴独奏 《英雄波兰舞曲》和歌剧卡门选段《哈巴涅拉》更是将音乐会的气氛推向了高潮。最后由全体音乐家共同演绎的《我和我的祖国》,为本场音乐会画上了完美的句 号。




Inaddition to the beautiful music there was an art and photography exhibition which were hosted by Benny Kharismana, an art teacher of Changchun American International School and a student’s parent of our school Mr. Andreas Kelske. The third-generation clay figurine Zhang of Guandong was also invited to make clay sculptures for everyone. It also greatly enriched the concert night activities and brought the audience both auditory and visual enjoyment.

当 晚除了美妙动听的音乐,长春美国国际学校艺术教师Benny Kharismana与学生家长AndreasKelske的艺术、摄影作品展亦如期举行。学校还特别邀请了第三代非物质文化遗产传承人-关东泥人张现场 为大家制作泥塑。关东艺术与西洋艺术,相得益彰,也极大的丰富了音乐会之夜活动,为宾客们带来了听觉和视觉上的双重享受。

After the concert, a full minute of applause to everyone left a deep impression. Musichas no national boundaries and the culture is the treasure shared bycivilizations. Notes to each other all over the world are interlinked, but isnot the same. We explore a way of different civilizations, and the music is a microcosm of culture.

音乐会后,整整1分钟的掌声给所有人留下了深刻的印象。音乐无国界,文化是文明共享的财富。全世界的音符彼此相通,却不尽相同。因为音乐是文化的缩影,是我们探索不同文明的一种方式。

Let us lookforward to more exciting activities of CAIS!

就让我们期待这场文化盛宴后更多的精彩活动吧!
