世界和谐基金会主办中华国学歌首登百老汇舞台、走进各景区、亮相联合国》
为迎接8月12日联合国青少年日,推动联合国大会的“文化促和平”决议,让世界上更多的人有兴趣学习联合国六大语言之一的中文。8月7日至10日,世界和谐基金会、全球未来领袖组织与美国国家艺术中心联袂组织了中美青少年参与的中华国学歌巡唱活动。学生和家长们一起走进白宫、国会、自由女神岛、时代广场,一路高唱“国学歌”,并于8月11日走进林肯中心区的百老汇音乐剧舞台——马乔里·迪恩剧院。

《中华国学歌》是历时多年创作的一套极具创新特色的古诗词音乐系列专辑和丛书,联袂中美两地音乐家联手打造的中华国学音乐精品项目。该项目中的所有歌曲均采用中国民族调式创作,运用了宫、商、角、徵、羽五声调式为作曲根基,融入了京剧、越剧、评弹及众多中国民族音乐元素,采用爵士、摇滚、雷鬼等流行音乐风格编配,具有传统与现代、古典与时尚、东方与西方的融合性特征。

8月11日“中华国学歌”首次亮相纽约百老汇的艺术舞台。来自中美两地的20多名青少年联袂上演了《明日歌》《三字经》《关雎》《回乡偶书》等多首旋律优美的中国古诗词歌曲。侨报总裁游江应邀为演出致辞。合唱团的孩子们与思坦太极武术中心的学员以歌曲和太极相结合的方式表演了《三字经》,深受现场观众的欢迎!

世界和谐基金表示,希望通过演出让孩子们在“听、唱、演”的方式中,来加深他们对中华国学文化的认识,提高孩子们对古诗词的学习兴趣,以寓教于乐的方式来推广和传播中华优秀传统文化。

本次音乐会由“世界和谐基金会”主办,“美国国家音乐中心”承办。新华社、文汇报、全美电视台、国会网络电视台等媒体支持!

旅美学子、费城艺术大学声乐系大一学生景梦韬担任主持。据策划人Frank Liu表示,当天参加演出的学生分别来自纽约和中国北京、浙江、广东等地,他们是尚姝妤、郑书涵、尤圣斯、尤圣歌、王天傲、刘昕格、刘昕媛、刘翔俊、王智柔、刘恩彤、高晨鑫等。尤圣斯和尤圣歌两兄弟表演的《一去二三里》也获得观众的阵阵掌声。其中表现最突出的是景梦韬同学,他以音乐剧的方式表演了《关雎》和《论诗》,赢得了现场观众的一致好评。本次音乐会的音乐导师高歌和尤静波也登台分别演唱了歌曲《乞巧》和《蝶恋花》。

来自纽约未来领袖组织的代表,华裔三姐弟特别积极的参加国学歌学习与表演,未来领袖小大使,大姐Harmony Liu (刘昕格12岁)用古筝生动的表演了国学歌《春日》,二姐Eirene Liu (刘昕媛7岁)独唱加舞蹈,弟弟Joseph Liu (刘翔骏3岁半)年纪最小但学国学歌最认真、声音最洪亮,他们被社区称为和谐家庭的三个未来领袖。

8月13日,“中华国学歌”走进联合国,在联合国总部举行了全球发布会。景梦韬的独唱专辑《中华国学歌·国风少年》在发布会上首次亮相全世界,并通过联合国邮局发行了100套“中国华国学歌全球发布”纪念首日封。联合国记者协会现场收藏了《中华国学歌》全套图书和《国风少年》专辑,同时,世界和谐基金会主席Frank Liu(刘藩)也为景梦韬和尤静波分别颁发了“世界和谐青年使者”和“世界和谐杰出音乐家”证书。

 在新闻发布会上,尤静波向媒体介绍了由他设计的“中华国学歌”LOGO并首次向全球发布。

    这个LOGO由三个部分组成。第一部分是“中国圆”,他说:“圆形是中国人最喜欢的形状,因为它代表着圆满与和谐";第二部分是右上角的“龙”字,“龙”是中华民族的象征,中国人经常称自己为“龙的传人”,但在设计中他淡化了“龙”字的一撇,没有了这一撇,这个字就变成了“尤”,在龙的基础上隐藏着作曲家的姓;第三部分是中间的红色字,“中华国学歌”五个汉字是尤教授专门邀请他的好友尤孝芬女士挥毫赐墨,汉字下面是英文翻译。据此,这个LOGO的设计包含了“中国圆”、汉字“龙”、作曲家的姓以及中国书法”,具有浓郁的中国传统文化意蕴。
