關於我們

台北世紀合唱團成立於1986年,由名音樂家廖年賦教授擔任團長,首任指揮為名音樂家王恆先生。1990年敦聘林舉嫻老師擔任本團指揮。自1991年起,敦請留奧音樂家陳雲紅老師擔任指揮。此後音樂會的內容型態更加豐富,不管是配合節慶,亦或是學術性的主題音樂會,其深度與難度均日益增高,不但讓團員的視野與能力更上一層,並獲得樂界先進的讚許與愛樂者的支持與認同。1999年由翁佳芬老師擔任客席指揮,在其指導之下台北世紀合唱團再展現另一番風貌。自2003年起聘請留美的陳麗芬老師擔任指揮,並分別在2004、2010年帶領本團至英國及德國參加合唱比賽,在民謠部份獲得最高之成績。2007、2008年分別邀請翁佳芬老師、潘宇文老師擔任客席指揮,帶領團員更上樓,激發出更美麗的火花。在歷年多位指揮們的訓練下,本團期許維持優良傳統,不斷開創多元化曲目及挑戰自我,以能演唱更精緻的合唱音樂與愛樂者分享。 

  藉由合唱音樂達到文化交流的目的,將音樂觀放諸國際是本團努力的方向。1995年本團受邀到西班牙參加「第十四屆國際合唱節」。1997年7月赴義大利Gorizia參加「第三十六屆國際合唱比賽」,在分項比賽中,本團表現出的流暢音樂及細膩情感,獲得評審及當地居民的激賞,因而獲得「總冠軍」榮銜等八項大獎,並獲邀參加1998年於義大利Grado舉辦之「第十屆歐洲六大合唱比賽總冠軍聯合音樂會」。這些成績和受邀的殊榮不僅振奮每位團員的心,更首開中華民國合唱史的紀錄。2000年7月,本團受邀參加於奧地利Linz舉辦之「第一屆國際奧林匹克合唱大賽」,在報名的兩個項目中,分獲「混聲室內合唱藝術組」金牌與「無伴奏民謠合唱組」銀牌,為台灣參賽團體中唯一在總決賽獲得金牌之隊伍,實屬難得。2002年7月本團至愛沙尼亞參加巴倫Parnu國際合唱音樂節獲得冠軍。2004年7月,本團至英國威爾斯參加「Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod」,在「傳統民謠組」和「改編民謠組」名列雙料冠軍。2010年8月,本團至德國蓋爾恩豪森參加「第一屆歐洲之心國際合唱比賽」,榮獲「世俗歌曲組」和「民謠組」第二名和第三名,此行不僅使團員獲得學習觀摩的良機,亦接觸到世界各地愛好合唱的朋友,達到文化交流的目的。

  在歷任指揮老師的細心指導下,團員皆充分瞭解自己在團體中不可或缺的份量,以嚴謹的態度來學習、詮釋曲目內涵,以達到為業餘的身份而有職業的水準。更值得一提的是團員間協調合作的團隊精神,演出前後數不清的煩雜事務,除了指揮與專案負責人的規劃外,每位團員也都義務熱心參與,貢獻出一己之力,而團員在此間培養出融洽和睦的氣氛與默契,更使團員們對本團產生了無盡的向心力,一齊創造音樂與人生的和諧之美。
