Music educator Lin Hung-hsing’s Dream Land Concert Hall, which has been seven years in the making, opened a few days ago in Lin’s native town in Greater Tainan’s Annan District.

Lin said at a press conference in Tainan last Thursday that he hoped the new arts venue would serve as a cultural center, providing more talented artists with a place to present their artistic virtuosity. He also hopes to enliven the local arts scene by introducing performing arts events to the district.

Following on from the opening of the Wan Sha Concert Hall’s Dongmen Branch in 2005 and its Yonghua Branch last October, both in downtown Tainan, the Dream Land Concert Hall is another privately funded performing arts venue in Tainan. The Dream Land Concert Hall is located on Haijhong Street in Annan District, rather than at the heart of Tainan like that Wan Sha’s two venues. Nevertheless, its large concert hall, which cost Lin more than NT$100 million to build, has an 807-seat auditorium and is designed to host solo recitals, chamber and orchestral concerts, theater and dance performances, and lectures. Lin hopes the new space will encourage the development of arts and cultural activities in Tainan’s rural areas. For more information, visit www.dorimu.com.tw.

音樂教育者林宏興籌備七年之久的「夢想田音樂館」,日前在其土生土長的台南市安南區誕生。

林宏興上週四在台南記者會上表示,希望全新的藝文場域,能像文化中心一樣,讓更多優秀藝術家一展長才,並透過表演藝術活化地方藝文風氣。

安南區第一間私人興建的「夢想田音樂館」,是繼二○○五年在台南成立的「涴莎東門館」與去年十月成立的「涴莎永華館」後,台南又多了一處私人表演場域。位於安南區海中街的夢想田音樂廳,地點雖不如涴莎來得市中心,但林宏興斥資新台幣一億多元闢建的全新空間,館內共有八百零七個座位,可承辦獨奏、室內樂、交響樂團、戲劇與舞蹈等演出及講座,希望藉此帶動台南偏鄉地區的藝文發展。更多資訊請上www.dorimu.com.tw網站。
