國韻週年致意

曲,詞: Jean Ngai

我們來自遙遠的東方,相聚在這美麗的西岸。
傳承博大的中華文化,讓國韻以歌聲來發揚。

(女)我們歌頌富饒的大地:
山河壯麗,天地寬廣;五穀豐盛,牛羊茁壯;春耕秋收,果實滿倉。
(男)我們述說歷史的故事:
陽關送別,塞外寒霜;長恨綿綿,傾國紅妝;八年抗戰,保衛家鄉。
(齊)我們感嘆上天的造化:
哥情妹意,地老天荒;野草閒雲,平和舒暢;造物天心,福祐吉祥。

我們來自遙遠的東方,相聚在這美麗的西岸。
讓我們以誠懇的祝福,獻上最衷心的願望:
但願世界和平,但願人民安康;
但願(這三十年來)國韻的歌聲和情誼,在你我的心田上綻放!

2009 – Silver Jubilee Concert – 是否

是否這次我真正的離開你,是否這次我將不再哭….

(是否這次我真正的離開你), 是否這次我將不再哭
(是否這次我將一去不回頭), 走上那條漫漫永無止境的路

(是否這次我已真的離開你), 是否淚水已乾不再流
(是否應驗了我曾說的那句話), 情到深處人孤獨.

多少次的寂寞掙扎在心頭, 只為挽回將離去的腳步(腳步)
多少次我忍住胸口的淚水, 只是為了告訴我自己我不在乎(不在乎)

(是否這次我已真的離開你), 是否淚水已乾不再流
(是否應驗了我曾說的那句話), 情到深處人孤獨.

多少次的寂寞掙扎在心頭, 只為挽回將離去的腳步(腳步)
多少次我忍住胸口的淚水, 只是為了告訴我自己我不在乎(不在乎)

(是否這次我真正的離開你), 是否這次我將不再哭
(是否這次我將一去不回頭), 走上那條漫漫永無止境的路
(是否這次我已真的離開你), 是否淚水已乾不再流
(是否應驗了我曾說的那句話), 情到深處人孤獨….情到深處人孤獨

2014 – Performance in Lakeview Care Home

2014年2月13日溫哥華國韻合唱團應「湖景護老院」之邀作新春獻唱。秉承國韻的宗旨,我們常把中國美好的歌曲帶到社區及每一個角落,到護老院獻唱更是我們每年必有的環節。由於正值新春之際,選取曲目當然不乏應節和勵志,當中有「恭喜恭喜」、「青春舞曲」、「一點燭光」、「萬水千山總是情」和「好歌獻給您」….等歌曲,首首金曲,支支動聽。聽得在場欣賞的公公、婆婆如痴如醉,笑逐顏開。有些還被我們牽動了回憶,與我們一起歌唱

It is a long tradition of VCCA to bring lovely and wonderful Chinese music to all corners of different communities. Annually, we place particular emphasis on our return visits to care homes for the elderly especially around Chinese New Year.
On 2014-02-13, Lakeview Care Centre invited VCCA to perform for their resident seniors. For this joyous occasion, we carefully chose songs including “Wishing You Happiness, Dance of Youth, A Flicker of Candlelight, Love Surpasses Mountains and Seas, and A Song for You, etc.”. Every song is a time-tested standard, soothing, moving and uplifting. All the “super-seniors” present were totally immersed in the familiar and lovely tunes. Some sang along, smiling, and willingly let their past memorable moments take their emotions back to those happy times.

2013 – Flash Mob in Aberdeen Centre

2013年11月11日溫哥華影視人協會連同加拿大血液服務中心(Canada Blood Service)聯合舉辦「捐血獻愛心」大行動 (Give Love Give Blood), 溫哥華國韻被邀請到列治文時代坊作「快閃」演出。能夠為公益儘一點力,國韻當然義不容辭。是次參與演出的團員超越50人,全數嚴陣以待,迎接新的嘗試。當日時屆中午時份,時代坊內人山人海,「快閃」行動由嚴瑾老師領唱一曲「茉莉花」帶領下,從三樓美食中心一路唱到一樓的噴泉旁邊的大舞台,吸引了眾多在場人士,有些還投入與我們一同歌唱,氣氛澎湃。今次演出除了饒有意義之外,還讓我們有新的學習,給我們新的感覺!
The “Give Love, Give Blood” campaign, organized by the Vancouver Film and Television Artists’ Society and co-sponsored by the Canadian Blood Services, took place on 2013-11-11 at the Aberdeen Centre in Richmond, BC.
Vancouver Chinese Choir Association (VCCA) was invited to the event and participated in the form of a ‘Flash Mob Performance”. Over 50 choir members rehearsed diligently beforehand and welcomed this new challenge and experience. The Aberdeen Centre was packed on the 11th. Around midday, led by Ms Jessica Yan, our choir group started the song “Jasmine” on the 3rd floor food fair, and descended to the 1st floor stage in the general area of the fountain. Along the way, our song exhilarated everyone in the crowded solarium; some even joined in and sang. In addition to the event being meaningful, it also schooled us in a new form of delivery of our music
