Chiayi traditional orchestra (CTO) has been an outstanding artistic performance team since 2018. Our goals are to popularize traditional Chinese music in local chiayi, through an innovative cross- border program to extend the definition of traditional Chinese music and establish a distinct style of orchestra and unique trend of artistic performance.
CTO not only performs traditional Chinese music, but also lets music lovers hear much more Chiayi local sound. At the same time, we also try to integrate the traditional music with dance, drama and multimedia, to find the new pattern of traditional Chinese music of Chiayi. We hope to bring the new auditory experience for the audience, and create the brand-new horizon for CTO sustainable development.
