New York City, NY (PRWEB) , May 5, 2008 — New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV) will hold the first-ever Chinese International Violin Competition in July 2008. Through this competition, violinists of Chinese descent from around the world will have a new platform to display their talents and inspire each other.
The competition is a part of the NTDTV Global Competition Series, which aims to revive and promote traditional Chinese culture by presenting different aspects of time-honored Chinese cultural expression in their most authentic form. In addition to activities typically considered Chinese, such as Chinese martial arts and Chinese cuisine, the competition series also includes some Western forms of artistic expression that Chinese people have come to excel in, such as piano, violin, and oil painting.
Seasoned violinists and musicians will judge the competition, awarding the winner with a top prize of $10,000. It is to be held July 25-27 in New York City, and all ethnic Chinese violinists meeting the 16-year-old age requirement are welcome to register. The competition will be held in 3 rounds.
According to Chia-Chi Lin, a member of the judging panel and first violinist of the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra, “In recent years, a new generation of outstanding Chinese violinists have emerged on the world stage. This competition is an opportunity for Chinese artists to showcase their talent and the fruits of their labor. As a result, we hope to inspire more Chinese people to explore classical music and incorporate some of the greatest forms of artistic expression from the West into this developing renaissance of Eastern culture that we see today.”
The competition will be broadcast via 4 satellites and cable TV networks to audiences around the world.
