Zhu Zongqing, chairman of the National Performing Arts Center, resigned on April 2, the first day of the Qingming Festival holiday. Before leaving office, he visited the three halls and one troupe of Guobiao Art with great fanfare, and broadcasted the countdown to his resignation on his Facebook platform without time lag. Brigade, the 170,000-word five-year tenure memoir is even more on the line, and it is selling well in major channels. Compared with the high-spirited former director Zhu Zongqing, the Ministry of Culture seems to be very low-key.
There is only less than a week left before the handover of the two directors. The next candidate who will take over the helm of the National Special Database Watch in the next four years is still there. Five miles of fog. It was not until March 30, before the holiday, that the Ministry of Culture issued a press release announcing that Gao Zhishang, chairman of Yimei Foods, one of the second directors, would take over as the chairman of the third National Performing Arts Center. As soon as the news came out, it immediately aroused discussion in the art and literature circles, but it was more likely to be confused, "Is the opera house going to start selling puffs?", "Can I take out ice cream when I go to a concert in the future?" These are a little joking His words reflect the fact that the name Gao Zhishang is mostly unfamiliar to the performing arts, especially the theater community.
Gao Zhishang, chairman of Yimei Foods, is the director of the 2nd National Performing Arts Center, and has served as the director of the National Two Halls and the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO). In addition, he is also a senior classical music fan and art collector . The cultural press release described him as "musical literacy with an international perspective" and "long-term concern for Taiwanese art and cultural exhibitions". But frankly speaking, considering the keen levels of professional requirements. At least as far as the Ministry of Culture's current announcement was until the news release of the chairman's handover on April 2, there was no mention of Yimei Foods or Chairman Gao Zhishang's performance in the performing arts industry.
