A series of outdoor concerts are set to kick off on September 4 in Taitung. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, the concert will strictly adhere to disease prevention measures.
The Taitung County Government has hosted the Starry Taitung Night series since 2018. The series has created a unique nocturnal way of experiencing Taitung. This year the Taitung County Government wants these concerts to integrate sustainability, meaningful travel, and the concepts of "Authenticity, Friendliness and Beauty.” Therefore, the government spared no effort in applying for the ISO Event Sustainability Management Systems 20121 certification. The Starry Taitung Night Concert ranked top ten on the must-attend activities in Taitung. The entire program will include seven performances throughout the county this year. Concertgoers can lounge around under the starry sky while enjoying some of Taiwan’s best musicians.
The first concert will take place in Shanyuan Bay of Beinan Township on September 4. Paiwan signer, A-Bao, will get the show started. A-Bao recently gained national recognition as the artist who took home the most awards at the 31st Golden Melody Awards in 2020.
Other musicians at the Starry Night Concert include the Chin-Ai Orchestra, the Buklavu Cultural and Art Troupe and the National Symphony Orchestra. The shows are set to be staged at the Bunun Cultural Museum, Baxian Caves, and Dawu Coastal Park.
All concerts will be held under an open night sky at scenic spots around the county, said Taitung County Magistrate April Yao. The magistrate was deeply moved by one of the 2019 concerts. She hopes that everyone has the chance to experience it for themselves this year.
The Taitung County Government aims to promote sustainable travel by offering excursions day and night, year round. The threat of coronavirus is easing. Despite this, all events will still follow all disease prevention measures and social distancing rules as stipulated by the central government.
