 美驻华大使骆家辉面会并赞扬三棱减一合唱团

日前,美驻华大使骆家辉和使馆官员会见了三棱减一合唱团成员,并对他们给予了高度评价。

 

72日上午11时,三棱减一的三名代表在西雅图男同合唱团助理指挥艾瑞克的引见下,于美驻华使馆与大使和使馆官员举行友好会谈。骆家辉大使对这只LGBTQ(同性恋、双性恋、跨性别等性少数人群)成员为主体的合唱团表示欢迎。

 

骆家辉大使表示:我非常赞赏你们的勇气和精神。你们不但展示着每个人自己的力量,还通过这样的团队形式发出你们自己的声音。他对合唱团的组成很感兴趣,也关注了平时排练和演出的时间、地点及频率。

 

三棱减一的负责人之一Roy做了简单介绍:目前在社交网站组群中,我们有大约200名成员,其中不乏异性恋的友好人群,有30人左右是演出成员。排练通常安排在周六下午,一年有若干演出机会,我们最近刚刚成功举办了一场演唱和无声拍卖。

 

合唱团的指导老师之一Faye谈到更多排练相关事宜,包括目前的潜在问题是未能有一个适宜的排练场所。使馆新闻文化处副文化馆邝怡华女士对此表示关注,并介绍了北京美国中心的一些艺术活动。艾瑞克建议今后合唱团和中心能有交流的机会。

 

骆家辉大使还询问了时下中国LGBTQ社区的发展趋势,以及公众对此的接受程度。Faye表示在发达都市中,一切都正在进步之中;而在较为落后的地区,这些依然还是问题。

 

艾瑞克则对合唱团寄予着很大期待:三棱减一正是引领着发展进步的一员。我非常希望他们能参加2016年在丹佛的同志合唱节。

 

骆家辉大使认为参加国际性的演出对三棱减一是很好的机遇,他对此长远规划高度赞成。

 

邝怡华女士也称:非常高兴能够结识三棱减一,我们都希望合唱团可以实现自己的目标,在未来能与我们有更多的美好分享。

Chinese LGBTQ Chorus wins acclaim of the U.S. ambassador Gary Faye Locke



The U.S. ambassador Gary Faye Locke and officials of American embassy met members of Shining Jazzy Chorus and spoke highly of them.

By 11 AM on 2nd July, three members of SJC, with the introduction of Eric Lane Barnes, assistant artistic director of Seattle Men’s Chorus, had a talk with the ambassador and officials at the Embassy of the U.S.A. in Beijing. Gary Faye Locke, the American ambassador to China, showed warm welcome to the visitors from the LGBTQ-based chorus.

He said: “I really appreciate your courage and spirit. You not only demonstrate yourselves individually but also make your voice out as a group.” He was also interested in the composition of chorus, and asked about the time, venue and frequency of rehearsals and performances.

“Now we have around 200 members, including straight friends, in social website group, while about 30 of them are performing members. We usually rehearse on Saturday afternoon and perform several times a year. In fact we just held a successful concert and a silent auction.” Said Roy Van, one of the cofounders of SJC.

Faye, one of the musical instructors of SJC, talked more about rehearsals and revealed his worry about the lack of a suitable venue. Erika Kuenne, the assistant culture affairs officer, showed concern and introduced artistic activities held in Beijing America Center. Eric suggested future cooperation between chorus and the center.

Gary also inquired about the current social climate of LGBTQ community in China and the extent of public recognition. Faye said that in modern cities there had been great progress while in less developed area it still remained as a problem.

“So Shining Jazzy Chorus also plays a role in leading the progress. I hope they can join the Chorus Festival in Denver in 2016,” said Eric.

Gary said that it would be good for SJC to participate the international performance and he supported this long-term plan.

“It’s very nice to meet the Shining Jazzy Chorus. We hope they can achieve their goals and have more to share in the future,” said Erika.
