Treasure hunter Ah Kiong (Quek Ling Kiong, Resident Conductor of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra) is making his comeback to Macao, once again engaging young music fans in a treasure hunt and introducing them to Chinese bowed string and plucked string instruments. Returning to Macao this concert season with a new riddle ‘The Secrets of Woodwinds’, Ah Kiong and the little audience will find out together who is singing in the bamboo grove.
Apart from the concert’s theme song ‘Music Adventure II’, we will also hear the most ancient flute playing ‘Primitive Safari’, koudi (mouth flute) playing ‘Morning on Miao Mountains’ with the orchestra, the Bamboo Flute Brothers playing against each other in ‘The Grasshopper Teasing the Cockerel’, as well as the Reed-Pipe Family’s ‘Little Donkey’, the Sheng Quartet ‘Suite from Miyazaki Hayao’s Animation Pictures’, ‘A Hundred Birds Paying Homage to the Phoenix’ by suona and the orchestra, ‘Winds in the Bamboo Grove’ by the Multi-Talented Wind Expert and an excerpt of ‘Song for Little Angels’ by the whole ensemble. What fun awaits Ah Kiong and the Macao Chinese Orchestra in the bamboo grove? This is definitely a must-see performance for parents and children alike!
