The partnership with Maestro Ken Hsieh and TAIWANfest Orchestra has over the years evolved into an important platform for more than 40 local classical music artists.  Voyage Across the Pacific will consist of music from both local and international composers, inviting the audience to relive the rigorous journeys across the oceans during the Era of Exploration and re-examining the traces left by that era in the present.

Voyage across the Pacific presented by NOW Toronto.

The TAIWANfest Orchestra performance is supported by the MPTF and TMA149.
