1. Kavalan 噶馬蘭
Wen-cheng Su 蘇文慶曲

Kavalan is one of the Aboriginals who lived on the Lanyan plains located at the northeastern part of Taiwan. In a legend, the daughter of the Sea Dragon King, Princess Kavalan, fell in love with General Tortoise Hill. However, the King disapproved and banished the General from the palace.

2. Guardians of the World
J. Hisaishi, J. Zuckerman, B. Wynn
Arranged by Matthew Van Driel

Two fantastical journeys, and one goal, to bring balance back to the world. Originally for western orchestra, this piece takes different selections from the Japanese animated film ‘Princess Mononoke,’ and the American animated television series ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender.’ The young heroes in these stories encounter many hopes, hardships, triumphs, and losses which are reflected in the selections chosen to create this medley. They, each in their own right, are ‘Guardians of the World.’
