SHMOG 2019：Christmas Choir under Glass Tree
December 18, 2019
In the arrival of Christmas 2019, Shanghai Museum of Glass has prepared a unique gift – a grand glass Christmas tree which made of 2504 pieces of glass wind chimes. It is named as The Tune of Rainbow, designed by the Let’s Talk Glass team and crafted by all staff of the Museum. “Rainbow” describes the pearl-like iridescent layer applied on glass; and “tune” stands for the harmonic movement which composed by 2504 pieces of glass wind chimes.
On December 7, Shanghai Museum of Glass was honoured to invite the Mei Lan Fang Choir, Dulwich College Shanghai, in the form of Museum-School cooperation. The children gathered under the glittering glass Christmas tree and sang season’s greetings for the visitors and passersby. After the performance, the little musicians visited Shanghai Museum of Glass together. The exhibition that combines knowledge and fun arouses the interest and love on glass; everyone re-discovered the charisma of glass therein.
Next day, the Museum hosted a small-scale lighting ceremony. Mulled wine and finger food was serviced and the coldness was driven by the hot drinks. The sweet sound of wind chimes hovered around the winter’s plaza.
When children’s voice enchanted the tree of Christmas, a series of Christmas celebrating activities organized by Shanghai Museum of Glass made its debut. When the glass Christmas tree was lit up row by row, we wish New Year’s dream and hope would be enlightened in everyone’s heart.
