澳門長虹音樂會成立於1979年7月,由一群熱衷於中國民族音樂、舞蹈及歌唱藝術的年青人組成。本著推展中國民間音樂的宗旨,長虹音樂會舉辦過大量不同形式的音樂專場,並參與無數澳門政府及社團舉辦的演出活動,成為澳門公眾熟悉的民樂團體。澳門長虹音樂會下設澳門長虹民族樂團及澳門長虹藝術活動中心。

自九二年起,長虹每年均舉辦大型的中國民族音樂會,並先後邀請過顧立民、丁家琳、張列、洪俠、李复斌、陸春齡、陳雄華、許昭雄、林吉良、王文禮、詹永明、戴亞、杜如松、張紅陽、唐俊喬、謝庭峰、劉雨聲、林富國、曾昭斌、馮曉泉、沈非、譚炎健、亞金達娃等不同地區,不同風格的著名音樂家來澳合作演出,既增進了本澳與各地音樂界的友誼,亦有助提升樂團的演出水準及豐富了市民的文化生活;此外,為增進各地的音樂交流,長虹曾先後與「廣東省歌舞劇院民族樂團」、「廣州星海音樂學院民族樂團」、「廣州天河廣東音樂團」、「湖南大雅音樂學校民樂團」、「湖北省歌劇舞劇院民族樂團」、「香港愛樂民樂團」、「香港余近卿中學中樂團」、「香港新聲國樂團」、「臺灣台大薰風國樂團」、「廈門大學雅風民樂社」、「廈門青年民族樂團」、「北京林業大學學生民族管弦樂團」、「湖北編鐘國樂團」、「河南民族樂團」等樂團合作舉辦音樂會,並多次應邀出訪廣州、常德、廈門、上海、海南島、山西、湖北、大連、石家庄、香港、湖南、臺灣、韓國、越南、印度、日本、緬甸及葡萄牙等地演出,廣獲好評。2010年六月上旬,長虹應邀率團前往上海參與世界博覽會演出,並於六月下旬前往葡萄牙首都里斯本參加《澳門周在里斯本》宣傳演出活動。

在音樂風格上,長虹除一貫地堅持傳統的中國民族音樂路線外,亦積極尋找一些新的突破;九五年三月突破性地與土生葡人組成的「新風格樂隊」攜手為澳門藝術節演出具有濃鬱本土色彩的樂曲,受到中葡人士的熱烈歡迎,進而促成出版雷射唱片計劃的實現,成為澳門第一隻中葡合作,具有歷史意義的唱片。
 
除演出活動外,長虹音樂會還經常舉辦聲樂、民族樂器等訓練班,並派員到澳門各學校組織樂隊及教授民族樂器。對培養澳門的音樂人材、弘揚中國民族音樂起了一定作用,近年更積極嘗試舉辦以專場音樂會的形式對中國樂器作專題介紹的「中國民族樂器系列」活動,希望藉此加深市民對各種民族樂器的認識,更好地推展民族音樂在澳門的普及發展。

 



Macao Cheong Hong Music Club was founded in July 1979, by a group of keen young enthusiasts interested in the arts of traditional Chinese music, dance and singing. With the aim of promoting traditional Chinese music, and through the hosting of a number of different music-style concerts, as well as participating in numerous performances organized by the government and the community, Cheong Hong has gained its reputation as a local organization of traditional music among the public. It has a band called “Macao Cheong Hong Orchestra” and a “Macao Cheong Hong Art Center”.
 
Ever since 1992, Cheong Hong hosts a large-scale traditional Chinese music concert annually. Over the years, it has invited musicians from different places and with different music styles to perform with local orchestras here in Macao. Those conductores and musicians include: Gu Li Min, Ding Jia Lin, Zhang Lie, Hong Xia, Li Fu Bin, Lu Chun Ling, Chen Xiong Hua, Xu Zhao Xiong, Lin Ji Liang, Wang Wen Li, Zhan Yong Ming, Dyer, Du Ru Song, Zhang Hong Yang, Tang Zun Qiao, Xie Ting Feng, Liu Yu Sheng, Lin Fu Guo, Ceng Zhao Bin, Feng Xiao Qua, Shen Fei, Tan Yan Jian, and Yakinda. Not only did their performances strengthen the bond of friendship between local and overseas music circles, they also helped enhance the overall performance level of local orchestras and enrich the cultural life of the general public.
 
To promote the interchange of knowledge and skills in music, Cheong Hong has collaborated with other orchestras through hosting music exchange concerts. These organizations include: Guangdong Province Dance and Theatre Chinese Orchestra, Xing Hai Conservatory of Music Chinese Orchestra, Guangzhou Tianhe Guangdong Music Orchestra, Hunan “Dai Ya” Musical College Chinese Orchestra, Hubei Opera and Dance Theatre Chinese Orchestra, Hong Kong “Music Lover” Chinese Orchestra, Hong Kong “Yu Kan Hing” Secondary School Chinese Orchestra, Hong Kong “New Tune” Chinese Orchestra, National Taiwan University “Xun Feng” Chinese Orchestra, Yafeng Chinese Music Group of Xiamen University, Xiamen Youth Chinese Orchestra, The National Orchestra of Beijing Forestry University, Hubei Chinese Carillon Orchestra, Henam Chinese Orchestra, and others.
 
Besides, Cheong Hong has also been invited to visit and perform in places likes Guangzhou, Changde, Xiamen, Shanghai, Hainan Island, Shanxi, Hubei, Dalian, Shijiazhuang, Hong Kong, Hunan, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, India, Japan, Burma and Portugal, and its performances were all well received by the audience. In early June 2010, Cheong Hong was invited to participate in the World Expo performances in Shanghai, and in late June to participate in the promotive performance of the "Macao week in Lisbon" in the capital of Portugal – Lisbon.
 
About its music style, although Cheong Hong insists on the adherence to traditional Chinese music, it does actively quest for new breakthroughs. As a new attempt, in March 1995 it collaborated with a local Portuguese group to jointly form the “A Outra Banda”. The Band’s local-style performance in the Macao Arts Festival created a great sensation among both the Chinese and Portuguese audience. This in turn led to the publication of the first Sino-Portuguese co-operated CD, which was itself of historic importance.
 
In addition to music performances, Cheong Hong frequently conducts training courses in vocal music and traditional musical instruments. These courses contribute to the cultivation of local music talents and the promotion of traditional music in the community. In recent years, it has also attempted to introduce traditional musical instruments to the general public through a series of special concerts. Through the so-called “Chinese National Instrument Collections” concerts, it is hoped that the public can gain a better knowledge of the instruments, while promoting the popularization of traditional Chinese music in Macao.
