為減低病毒擴散的機會,各地政府推出不同的政策限制市民聚集的人數,鼓勵或者強制人民保持社交距離。疫情下所有的演出都停止。 對長者而言,「居家令」和「限聚令」導致他們沒法出外「睇大戲、聽粵曲演唱」,對那些住在老人院的長者來說,平日他們依賴義工探訪、為他們舉辦活動、唱粵曲娛樂他們。但現在各地老人院禁止義工探訪,令他們的日子過得更加孤單。

不過,在困難的日子裡,人的心靈更需要藝術的滋潤。希望「萬千聲音眾志一心」全球抗疫粵曲網上直播慈善演唱會可以填補長者和粵劇迷心靈上這點遺憾。科技讓我們可以透過網上直播將優美的粵曲送到全球家家戶戶;更可以藉這個機會把粵劇戲曲這個中國嶺南瑰寶傳揚海外,讓更多不認識粵曲的人有機會接觸和了解這典雅嘅藝術,造就弘揚粵劇曲藝嘅契機。

這個演唱會能夠成事,我要感謝粵劇界多年拍檔和好友,包括粵劇紅伶吳仟峰先生、尹飛燕小姐、新劍郎先生、王超群小姐、鍾麗蓉小姐、梁兆明先生、何華棧先生、王志良先生、裴駿軒先生,以及多位香港粵樂名家的支持,還有一班跟隨我多年的學生的參與,實現了這個初看起來有點不切實際的構思,而且得到熱烈的迴響。

感謝各方好友的支持,直播演唱會消息公布後,他們立刻揮動指頭透過 WhatsApp 廣傳消息,通知全球華人朋友。特別是加拿大振華聲和清韻的積極推廣,令到北美的粵劇迷都興奮起來。亦要感謝多年的老友小湘雲,透過她促成英國倫敦和曼徹斯特華人電台轉播我們的節目,讓身處英國不懂上網的粵劇迷可以有機會收聽。截至今日,已答應直播或轉播「萬千聲音眾志一心」全球抗疫粵曲網上直播慈善演唱會的電台和電視台已覆蓋全個美國、全個加拿大、英國倫敦、曼徹斯特、香港、澳門、和大灣區。

至於未有電台電視台播放的地區,我呼籲年輕人一盡孝道,協助你們的長輩上網,訂閱或點贊「萬千聲音眾志一心」的Youtube 或臉書帳號,讓他們可以安坐家中抗疫的同時觀看他們喜愛的粵曲演唱。

最後,我要衷心感激加拿大駐香港澳門總領事南𠍇瑞先生。他在「萬千聲音眾志一心」成立的第一年已經給予我們極大支持。今日他雖然未能夠親自出席傳媒發布會,但特意為我們拍攝了一段視頻,鼓勵和恭祝我們的活動成功。

再次多謝所有支持「萬千聲音眾志一心」的朋友。希望疫情早日結來,我們可以再次在劇院見面!

In the mid-1960s, Wong Chiu-Kwan learned the art of acting from Master Tam San-San, who excelled in playing the role of the female lead in Cantonese opera. She studied “cheung hong” from Master Lau Wing-Chuen. In the 1980s she performed throughout South East Asia, and became a leading female artist in Cantonese opera after she returned to Hong Kong in the nineties. She is famous for playing female military roles, especially as the general on bound feet. Over the years she has partnered with many leading male artists, including Man Chi- Sui, Yuen Siu-Fai, Lo Ka-Ying, Ng Chin-Fung, Lung Kwun-Tin, Lee Lung, among others in forming various Cantonese Opera Troupes.

Apart from being famous for her mastery of the art of performing on bound feet, she is also recognized for her contributions in promoting Cantonese opera education and community work. In 2010 she was honoured as The Artist of the Year (Opera) by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, and awarded a certificate by the Home Affairs Bureau; in 2018 she was appointed as the Artistic Director of the Cantonese Opera Rookies’ Performance Series hosted by the Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong.
