The I-Lan Youth Orchestra embraces all musical elements, draws on Taiwan's local energy, and uses travel performances as a musical training method to present a special interpretation of music. In addition to performing music in concert halls, outdoor performances can help interactive with audience instantly and musicians can get the feedback from audience instantly. Through the open-air concerts, Orchestra has a great hope that audience may approach music in their lives and internalize them into memories of the audience.
Passing down the traditional Taiwanese music of the opera has also become one of the important tasks of the group. The historical and literary scripts, the traditional ancient music scores, and the childhood music memories of the elders have been re-preserved, re-made and performed by the I-Lan Youth Orchestra. The new music network continues to be passed down to the next generation.
The performance on tour is to let the performers, supporters, and travellers leave the memories of life. The I-Lan Youth Orchestra has been practicing in the field for more than ten years. The young generation has grown up and returned to the orchestra to educate the next generation of young people. The same rhythm is accompanied by a group of people for another ten years. It is only time that will memorize the fragments and link them into a film of life, which will be passed on forever.
