Translator (English to Cantonese)

Help us translate an English story into Cantonese narration

Project Details

What we need

  • Join a 10 minutes phone call
  • Translate the English story, Story of Ferdinand to Cantonese narration


We will produce a music story with narration (for woodwind quintet) based on an English short story "The Story of Ferdinand." We are hoping to translate the narration into Cantonese and share the music story with NGOs and local community. Some of the narration needs to match with the music, therefore, basic score-reading skills would be helpful.

What we have

The music score and the text would be provided.

Why this is important

TOA hopes to contribute musicians' talents to servicing the community through volunteering opportunities. Sharing a music story with narration, we reach out to facilitate others assess music and create a shared musical experience with the community.
