The Society’s function for April will be a film screening at the Southern Cross Club at Jamison on Thursday 13 April.
The film is The Song of the Phoenix:
In the 1980s, Master Jiaosan headed a suona ensemble, playing at weddings and funerals. The local custom means that the masterpiece of “Song of Phoenix” could only be played to well-respected persons during their funerals. Jiaosan’s apprentice You Tianming worked very hard and stood to succeed Master Jiao with the suona ensemble. Jiao and You witness a lot of ups and downs in this musical form of suona. When fellow suona players were forced to make a living in the city as unskilled laborers, the ensemble finally broke up. However, You Tianming stuck to his promise to Master Jiao and committed himself to the traditional art.When Master Jiao passed away, Tianming played “Song of the Phoenix” at his graveside to commemorate the noble and dignified life of Master Jiao.
