A-Sharp Chorus & Symphony Silicon Valley

Introduction of NCCCA:

Northern California Chinese Chorus Alliance (NCCCA) is a non- profit cultural organization registering in the state of California. Based in San Francisco Bay Area, its members include hundreds of professional artists and Chinese choir members. It established its core committee in 2014 and has been active since then.

The mission of NCCCA is to bring choral music to our community, foster cultural exchanges and education, especially in the areas of music and choral art, and to promote Chinese culture. NCCCA improves the cooperation, exchange, and education among choirs by organizing all kinds of cultural activities, therefore increases the level of artistry, the visibility and impact of choral art, and community services.

In the past ten years, A-Sharp chorus, who was a core member of NCCCA, participated in or produced a number of high-profile concerts. In 2006, they took the Cantata “Lyrics of Overseas Chinese” by Mr. Guo Ke, the Chorus’ resident poet, and Mr. A Tang, a famous composer, to China and performed at five venues. It told the story of the past 150 years of overseas Chinese who have struggled through hardships for their achievements and contributions to this country. It also expressed their yearning for the motherland through its melodies and lyrics.

In 2008, A-Sharp Chorus presented another original work, the Oratorio “King Yu” by Mr. Guo Ke and Mr. Bao Yuankai, a well-known music composer. It was based on the legend of King Yu who led his people in the fight against devastating floods for thirteen years, and it exemplified the significance of the unity of a people and their nation to survive and thrive.

In 2011, the A-Sharp Chorus presented their third original piece in the “Song of the Big Wind”, another Oratorio with lyrics by Mr. Guo Ke and music by Mr. Chen Lechang, a well-known music composer. It tells the story of the formation of the identity of the Han people.

This year, the A-Sharp Chorus will perform “NuWa Patches the Sky”, co-produced with Symphony Silicon Valley. The story is a part of ancient Chinese creation mythology, wherein the goddess, NuWa, rescues humanity by repairing the pillar of heaven. This concert will be an infusion of eastern and western cultures, providing a unique musical perspective and experience.
