NCCU held the 51st Culture Cup Choir Contest on December 2nd, and after a series of keen competition, the Department of Business Administration carried the “three -peat” vigor, continued to hold a post of championship. The Second Prize went to the Department of International Business, and the Department of Public Finance which was not the top six last year ended up winning the third place. The fourth and fifth place went to the Department of Accounting and the Department of Money and Banking respectively. While the College of Law, Communication, Department of Chinese Literature, Diplomacy and Psychology were juxtaposed with the sixth prize.
The Department of Business Administration claimed that they had made many efforts to be crowned four times consecutively. They practiced at least twice a week even before the semester began. “The Championship doesn’t come easy.”, stated Wang Shang-cian (王尚謙), leader of Department of Business Administration. He explained that they encountered lots of problems during practicing, and never thought of being awarded the champion again.
Yang Sin-yan (楊欣妍), leader of the Department of International Business, had ample experience since she joined the chorus in elementary school. She indicated that the initial goal was to rank in the top five, and that winning the second place was surprisingly amazing. “It was hard to recruit the chorus in the beginning, the number of joined members were under expectation.” said Yang. Not until the announcement of the award did she eventually feel relieved.
“Though small, accomplishes big.” The Department of Public Finance, with only 33 students participating in the contest, gained the third prize. The representative Yang Cing-ya (楊晴雅) stated that she merely hoped everyone enjoy the contest rather than winning the prize. Except for the freshmen, 9 of the 12 male students were seniors requested to sing together. They tried hard to find out spare time and solve problems, and thus successfully ranked in the top three.
The Best Conductor this year went to Ye Shih-hong (葉世宏) from the Department of Business Administration, Huang Zhi-yu (黃子瑜) from the Department of International Business, and Ciou Bing-fong (邱秉逢) from the Department of Public Finance. Ye Shih-hong (葉世宏), who had never served as a conductor stated that he attained the affirmation by sedulously practicing. Huang Zhi-yu (黃子瑜) bursted into joyful tears at the moment, though she plays piano, guitar and violin, it was also her first time being a conductor. Huang’s parents specifically came to the contest from Taichung to support their daughter. Ciou Bing-fong (邱秉逢) thanked the accompany of their supervisor, Pan Guo-cing (潘國慶),for his suggestions and encouragement.
Huang Jhih-sheng (黃志昇) from the Department of Statistics and Wang Pin-chu (王品筑) from the Department of Accounting were awarded the Best Accompaniment. Speaking of being rewarded, Huang revealed surprisingly gratification. He humbly said the elective song, “The road to mediocre life”, was not too difficult, and he felt surprised and touched by winning the prize. Wang stated that she had brought the piano accompaniment of the elective song, “Kyrie”, into full play. “
Though the Department of Japanese had less participants, their unity was recognized by the Best Spirit. The leader Huang Ming-chen (黃明茞) mentioned that though the practicing process went well, she still made every effort to have a good understanding among members. “It is fairly unexpected to be awarded”, She attributed the prize to everyone’s involvement and was proud of the honor.
The Department of Money and Banking was the big winner of this year as well, winning not only the fifth place but the Best Stage Design. “Eight Laughs”, the song presenting different forms of “laughs”, incorporated with the vocal accompaniment, special make-up and stage effect, made them successfully catch the jury's’ attention.
