The City of Toronto invited the professional members of the Toronto Chinese Orchestra to perform at the Cavalcade of Lights, and TCO have invited me to join. Inspired by international lantern, fire and light festivals and winter solstice celebrations, Cavalcade of Lights is a free event that transforms Nathan Phillips Square, the Toronto City Hall and its surrounds into a dazzling wonderland, with its Christmas tree, free concerts, and a public skating ring. Our group played for the overture of the festival. Our last song was a version of Fool’s Garden’s “Lemon Tree” for Chinese instruments and voice.
Title: Lemon Tree
Music and lyrics: Fool’s Garden
