計劃詳情   

雅樂合奏團

尋訪香港的管風琴與社區音樂特輯

 

 

·      雅樂合奏團為香港的非牟利慈善團體,今次製作這音樂特輯的計劃宗旨是希望籍此能提高大眾對香港古蹟、歷史、藝術及文化的欣賞。

 

·     今次雅樂合奏團的音樂特輯希望能帶大家來參觀香港兩間歷史歷史悠久的教堂,分別是於1954年札根在紅碪的聖公會聖匠堂,和中環位建於1911年,屬於一級歷史建築物的聖公會聖保羅堂。

 

·     在音樂特輯內,我們將介紹教堂的歷史及分別是由Nicholson & Co. and W.C. Blackett 製造的管風琴,介紹給觀眾認識。

 

·      我們將於教堂裡的用管風琴、聲樂及樂器去演奏歐洲16至18世紀樂曲。還有特別委約了香港現代作曲家李慧珊去創作及演奏一首全新的管風琴作品。

                                                         

·      音樂特輯為網上節目而設,以多集紀錄片形式將於網上平台例如Youtube and Facebook給公眾免費收看。

 

 

為什麼資助此計劃?

 

  • 作為一個小型非牟利團體,雅樂合奏團能夠持續發展,以推動演奏及創作音樂的目標,是富挑戰性的。自2004年以來,我們一直堅持我們的使命,結合藝術與文化展現於觀眾,使藝術家、製作團隊、藝術及文化愛好者皆有得益。2019年10月,雅各合奏團曾經成立香港第一屆古樂節而且晉身成為2019香港電台第四台二十大古典樂聞之一。

 

·      這計劃不但呈獻音樂予觀眾欣賞,更將會探索香港的歷史遺跡,記錄它們的故事。將這些特別的地方和特別的事件記錄,記載我們都應該珍惜的香港的歷史。我們相信歷史遺產、藝術和文化結合一起將加強提升生活素質。

 

  • 在香港,昔日很多管風琴,因不敵長年累月的損耗,而逐漸被淘汰,由數碼管風琴取代,然後消失。我們希望透過拍攝此音樂特輯能把在教堂內的管風琴聲音及影象留住,還有去認識其教堂及其社區的歷史,亦希望籍此能提高大眾對香港古蹟、歷史、藝術及文化的欣賞。

 

·     在這疫症的艱難時期,香港及全球的音樂表演舞台因場地關閉,作曲家缺乏平台發表新作品。音樂演奏與創作是音樂藝術者的生命,我們希望藉這計劃提供我們的藝術家及作曲家的創作平台,在這時期尋找一線曙光。

 

 

資助款項的用途

·      捐款將會用於音樂特輯的製作費用,包括藝術家、錄像師、前期及後期的製作費用。

Project summary

Concerto da Camera's 

In search of pipe organs and their communities in

Hong Kong

 

  • The goal of this documentary project, to be produced by Concerto da Camera, a registered charity in Hong Kong, is to increase public awareness and appreciation of our heritage, our history, our arts, and our culture. 

  • The documentary will bring the public to visit two churches that have a long history: 1) S.K.H. Holy Carpenter Church in Hung Hom, established since 1954, and 2) S.K.H. St. Paul’s Church in Central, built in 1911.

  • The documentary will explore the history of the churches, their communities, and their pipe organs built by Nicholson & Co. (Holy Carpenter Church) and W.C. Blackett (St. Paul’s Church), which are of local and regional importance. 

  • European music from the 16thto 18thcenturies will be performed by the ensemble.

  • The documentary will also premiere a newly commissioned piece for solo organ composed and performed by Hong Kong composer and organist, Erma Lee Wai Shan.

  • The documentary will be released across multiple episodes on platforms such as Youtube and Facebook.

 

Why support this project?

 

  • As a small-scale non-profit organisation with no regular funding, Concerto da Camera, now in its 16thyear, relies on public support to fulfill its mission to promote arts and culture. Highlights of its recent activities include establishing the 1st Hong Kong Early Music Festival (2019) and being shortlisted for the 2019 Top 20 Classical Music News at RTHK Radio 4.

  • Your support is needed to rebuild community spirit, and to sustain arts and cultural programmes during these challenging times, where in-person events are suspended with no foreseeable resuming date due to the pandemic.

  • Community involvement is the power to raise awareness to local treasures and history. There are only very few churches here that have a playable pipe organ!

  • This is a meaningful way to show your support of Hong Kong artists and their creation!

How the fund will be used?

Your donations will be used for all costs associated with this project, including pre-production, production, and post-production expenditures, as well as honoraria for artists and crew.
