中国驻美国大使秦刚

很高兴参加天津音乐学院茱莉亚研究院首届研究生毕业典礼,祝贺你们取得的学业成就,也祝贺你们从今天起即将踏上人生的新旅程。

I am delighted to join you at the First Commencement of the Tianjin Conservatory of Music Juilliard Graduate School. Congratulations on your collective academic accomplishments! Congratulations to all of you as you start a new chapter in your life’s journey.

我知道,为了今天这个重要的时刻,在疫情相伴的过去两年中,学校和同学们经历了艰巨的考验,也都付出了巨大的努力,相信这独特的学业经历,使同学们对人类命运休戚与共有了更深刻的理解,也让大家收获了成长的力量,能够在未来更加坚韧地面对困难和挑战。

In the midst of a two-year-long pandemic, arriving at today’s important moment for the School and the students has been incredibly challenging and has required devotion and tremendous effort. I believe this unique experience has not only deepened your understanding that humankind shares a common destiny, but has also empowered you to deal with future difficulties and challenges with more resilience.

天津音乐学院茱莉亚研究院是高水平的中美合作办学机构,不仅致力于培养国际高水平音乐艺术人才,而且在推动中美人文交流方面作出了富有成效的贡献。作为学院的首届毕业生,你们既是中美教育交流孕育的优秀人才,也即将成为促进中国与世界沟通和理解的艺术使者,这是你们行囊中最珍贵的财富。

The Tianjin Conservatory of Music Juilliard Graduate School is a high-level China-US education joint-venture. It is dedicated to educating musical artists with international competence and has already made productive contributions to China-US people-to-people exchange. As the first cohort of graduates, you are talents nurtured by the China-US education exchange and will soon become artistic envoys promoting communication and understanding between China and the world. As you pack your bags and set off into the world, this experience is your most valuable asset.

同学们,你们身处充满变局和重塑的时代,面对依然复杂不确定的世界。希望你们不要忘记在学校所获得的每一份成就,充满乐观与活力,保持独立与坚定,努力成为具有高度艺术水准、富有社会责任感的“世界艺术家”。期待你们成为未来的引领者,用艺术跨越国界、沟通民心,广泛参与世界文明对话与交流。

Students, you live in an era that is full of changes and reinvention. You are faced with a world that continues to be complicated and uncertain. I truly hope you will remember each accomplishment you have achieved at the School. I hope that your experience here will equip you with optimism and vigour, that you will maintain independence and firmly strive to be “world artists,” combining a high artistic level with sound social responsibility. I expect you will be future leaders who will apply your craft to heart-to-heart communication among peoples crossing borders, and be active participants in promoting dialogue and exchange among civilizations throughout the world.

我和中国驻美使领馆的同事们,也将继续坚持不懈地致力于推动中美人文交流,为中美两国人民友谊注入动力。

My colleagues and I at the Chinese Embassy in the United States will also continue to make unremitting efforts to promote China-US people-to-people exchange in the hope of re-energizing the friendship between peoples of China and the U.S.

最后,我衷心祝愿同学们前程似锦,祝天津音乐学院茱莉亚研究院越办越好,继续以艺术教育为纽带,为世界文化交流贡献力量!

Last but not least, I wholeheartedly wish you a brilliant future. I hope The Tianjin Conservatory of Music Juilliard Graduate School develops smoothly and continues to utilize art education as a bridge contributing to artistic exchanges throughout the world!

以下是尼古拉斯·伯恩斯(Nicholas Burns)大使的讲话:

美国驻中国大使尼古拉斯·伯恩斯(Nicholas Burns)

各位在天津的大家,早上好。我非常非常遗憾,今天没法与大家齐聚一堂,但是谢谢你们的邀请。因为今天是天津茱莉亚学院特殊的一天。

Good morning to everyone in Tianjin. I'm very, very sorry I couldn't be with you today, but thank you for this invitation. Because it's a special day for Tianjin Juilliard.

我很荣幸能向各位表示祝贺。天津茱莉亚学院首届毕业班的33位同学们,这是一项了不起的殊荣。

It's really an honour for me to congratulate all of you. The 33 members of the Tianjin Juilliard's first graduating class; that's quite a distinction.

大家知道,我们把毕业典礼称为commencement(开始),因为它显然代表着起点,是毕业生们庆祝自己取得的成绩的起点,也是带着一种使命感向着未来开启人生的新起点,去成为一座桥梁,就像你们作为茱莉亚的学子所担当的角色。我们对茱莉亚的传统,从它的校友到学子,都十分自豪。从今天开始,你们会向前走,你们会在中国、在美国以及在世界各地代表这所颇具声望的学府。因为著名的茱莉亚学院,是美国最优秀的学府之一。

You know, we call the graduation ceremony a commencement because obviously, it represents the beginning, the beginning for graduates to celebrate what you've accomplished, but also to go forward with a sense of purpose in a new beginning to your lives, to be the kind of bridge that you've been as students at Juilliard; and we’re so proud of the tradition of Juilliard from its alumni to its students; and starting today, you'll go forward and you'll represent this very respected institution here in China, in the United States, and around the world, because the famous Juilliard School is one of the great institutions of the United States of America.

作为天津茱莉亚学院的代表,你们现在将成为一项非常特别的使命和传统的继承者与守护者。毕业生们,你们作为艺术家、作为公民将体现天津茱莉亚学院核心的价值观。你们鼓舞并培养世界各地未来一代的音乐家,在美国和中华人民共和国,遍布亚洲,也遍布世界各地。

As representatives of Tianjin Juilliard, you’ll now be the holders and caretakers of a very special mission and a special legacy. As graduates, you'll exemplify Tianjin Juilliard's core values as artists, as citizens. And you will nurture the next generation of musicians around the world in the United States and the People's Republic of China, across Asia, and across the world.

当拜登总统和习近平主席去年九月通话时,拜登总统明确表示,我们所有人保持我们两国之间沟通渠道通畅并保持开放是非常重要的。

When President Biden and President Xi Jinping spoke by phone last September, President Biden made clear that it was very important for us all to keep channels of communication and openness between our two countries.

要做到这一点,还有什么是比通过文化和音乐更好的方式呢?天津茱莉亚所倡导的音乐对话,是我们保持我们两国一起交流、歌唱和演奏音乐的一种至关重要的方式。音乐对话是美中外交关系历史上的关键部分,这也一直延续至今。

And what better way to do that than through culture and music? And the musical dialogue that Tianjin Juilliard promotes is one essential way for us to keep our two countries talking and singing and playing music together. Musical dialogue is a key element in the history of the diplomatic relationship between the United States and China, and that continues to the present day.

我知道就在几个月前,天津茱莉亚学院举办了一场音乐研讨会,纪念尼克松总统1972年对北京和上海进行历史性访问50周年。各位天津茱莉亚学院的首届毕业生所代表的音乐交流和音乐伙伴关系,将继续为我们两国人民之间的联结做出贡献。坦率讲,这种联结可谓我们两国关系的生命线。而这一关系在未来将会非常重要。在美中关系上我们显然处于一个艰难的时期,作为美国驻华大使,我当然认为我们所有人都有责任努力保持这种联结。你们所有人现在都有这个机会。我觉得你们有责任这样做。

I know, just a few months ago, Tianjin Juilliard hosted a musical symposium in honor of the 50th anniversary of President Nixon's historic 1972 visit to Beijing and Shanghai. These types of musical exchanges and musical partnerships embodied by this inaugural group, your inaugural group of Tianjin Juilliard graduates will continue to contribute to the people to people connections that are frankly the lifeblood of the relationship between our two countries. And that relationship is going to be so important for the future. We're obviously at a difficult time in the relationship between the United States and China, and I certainly think as the American ambassador here, that it's going to be incumbent on all of us to try to maintain these connections. All of you have that opportunity now. I would say you have the responsibility to do that.

我们祝大家一切顺利。我们赞赏你们如此优秀,能从这里毕业。我们赞赏你们,因为一个事实——你们这33位毕业生是我们两国间鲜活的桥梁。音乐正是我们所有人生活中巨大的欢乐之一,而我也是音乐迷,特别是古典乐。所以我祝愿大家能把这份职业中的欢乐带到世界各地,也带给我们两国。

So we wish you well. We commend you on the distinction of this graduation, commend you for the fact that you are the 33 of you a living bridge between our two countries. And since music is just one of the great joys of all of our lives, and I'm a great music fan, particularly classical music. I wish you well in bringing that joy in your profession to the rest of the world. As well as to our two countries.

为大家送上最美好的毕业祝愿。非常遗憾因为疫情我今天不能亲自来天津。明年我会来和你们一起,如果疫情放我们一马。再次对大家以及各位的家人和导师表示祝贺,祝贺你们每一个人。

All the best for your graduation day. I am so sorry that the pandemic has prevented me from driving down the road to Tianjin today. I'll be with you next year if the pandemic gods permit that. And again, to you, to your families, to your professors; congratulations, everyone.
