Dear BCCO members,
As we excitedly awaits our first rehearsal (this coming Friday, September 10th at 8pm), there are a few things to address:
First of all, thank you to those who have completed our online registration form. We are happy to note that all members who submitted are at least 1-dose vaccinated, and most are fully vaccinated. Provided everyone follows the COVID guidelines as per the last announcement, we are confident that we will rehearse in a safe and fun environment. The BCCO Restart Task Force team will have the rehearsal space fully sanitized before every rehearsal, and we kindly ask you to arrive early with your mask to sign in on a Covid declaration form upon entry, and to maintain social distancing.
In addition, a warm reminder to carry your BC Vaccine Card (electronic or paper versions) with you when coming to rehearsals. Note that partial vaccination will become mandatory starting Sept 13, per Provincial Health Officer (PHO) of BC. Subsequently, full vaccination will be required beginning Oct 24. For more information, please visit:
We will be rehearsing 闖將令, 電視主題曲 as well as 黃土情 this Friday, please bring back the music you have from our previous season.
It is with deep regret to share the recent passing of Eric Chan, our beloved vice president of BCCMA. He left us on August 26th and is survived by his wife and 3 sons. We not only grieve at the passing of a dedicated individual but also for the loss his family suffers. Eric was a founding member of the BCCMA with deep influence in the past 26 years. Above all, he has been a good friend and a family to many of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eric’s family during this difficult time.
Prior to his passing, Eric expressed his desire for BCCMA to hold a “Celebration of Life” fundraising concert. During his final days, Eric spent his precious time drafting concert programme, designing stage setup and lighting, and inviting his friends and colleagues from the local communities to aid our ticket sales and to solicit sponsorships.
With utmost respect to Eric’s will, let’s spend this coming season to carefully prepare and rehearse! Your help and participation in BCCO would mean a lot to us as well as to Eric’s family.
If you intend to join our 2021-22 season and COVID rehearsal restart but have not registered yet, please complete the following online form before Friday:
Thank you and look forward to seeing you all on Friday!

Dear friends and members of BCCO,
After more than a year of rest, the time has finally come for the BCCO to resume rehearsal for our 25th anniversary on Friday, September 10th, 2021 at 8pm. The BCCO Restarting Task Force has been working hard to develop the following safety plan in order for everyone to be able to make music together. Please read this plan carefully and follow the outlined instructions for the use of our space and safe entry and exit of the building.
- Vaccination (2 doses) is highly recommended.
- If you have any sickness or Covid-19 symptoms within 14 days, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19, please kindly remain home.
- Members are to wear masks at all times when inside the BCCMA building. For the wind section, we will have windscreens set up, so you can safely remove your masks when you’re playing.
- Please reinforce social distancing.
- Please arrive on time and try to remain in your seats during rehearsal.
- We want to encourage one-way traffic flow through the building. Hence the main entry will be out entry point and the door near the guzheng storage in the rehearsal area will be out exit point.
- Please bring your own water bottle, as our kitchen will not be in operation. Members should briefly unmask to drink water when needed, then promptly remask. If you need to eat, please kindly do so outside the building.
- The BCCMA will sanitize the rehearsal space before every rehearsal.
- Hand sanitizers and alcohol wipes will be provided for you to clean and disinfect your chair and music stand after every rehearsal.
- During break and after rehearsal, we encourage members to mingle outside the building.
- Please register ASAP so we can revise our floor plan according to the attendance and prepare supplies and windscreens accordingly.

Dear members of the BC Chinese Orchestra:
Warm greetings to you all!
The time has come for the BCCO to restart as the pandemic situation slows down, the government guidance on gathering restrictions relax, and the community vaccination rate approaches an optimal level.
After 1.5 year of inactivity, restarting requires a lot of planning work. Some of us have taken the initiatives and started the BCCO Restart Task Force. We strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment for all members as we resume our rehearsal & performance activities.
In order for us to grasp a sense of attendance so that we can prepare a safe reopening, we ask you to share your most current contact information and register for the 2021-22 BCCO season using the link below by Aug 31, 2021. We will also be sharing our COVID-19 health & safety guideline and a safety floor plan for the rehearsals shortly.
The Alberta Performance Tour remains the highlight for BCCMA’s 25th anniversary celebration. We sincerely wish that you would join us in this upcoming tour as we recapture our stellar growth over the years and witness our successful stories. All of you have played an important role in our organization’s history and every member’s participation has been indispensable and are appreciated. Let us make music together again in September! Let us continue to build a strong future for our orchestra and the Chinese music community in Canada!
