the hong kong voices collection

 
"Hong Kong Voices is a chamber choir established in 2000. Aspired to bring choral music closer to the Hong Kong people, we cultivate the ability of music appreciation among our singers, and offer our audience an artistic experience that both delights and inspires.

Our repertoire spans from the Renaissance to the modern era, including many acclaimed Baroque and Classical choral works, most recently Bach's St John's Passion and Mozart's Vesperae Solennes de Confessore. We often introduce some lesser-known choral masterpieces to the audience, most notably we gave the Hong Kong premiere of Schoenberg's Friede auf Erden in 2005. We also infuse our programme with works by Asian and Hong Kong contemporaries as a tribute to our unique cultural heritage, including commissioned works Ten Years (2007) and Carmina Burana (2015) by George Lam, a Hong Kong born composer now residing in New York.

We have collaborated with many leading local artists such as pianist Stephen Wong, soprano Yuki Ip and counter-tenor Ray Chan, as well as many young and rising musicians and vocalists. We perform regularly with our professional instrumental partners, and had joined the Hong Kong Sinfonietta in performances of Haydn's Little Organ Mass and Faure's Requiem.

We believe that music lives beyond the concert hall, hence we collaborate with claying's studio which has captured all our live concerts since 2010. We also appeared in multimedia productions such as Samson Young's music theatre Electric Requiem - God Save the Queen (2009, recorded live in DVD).

Ken Lam, currently Music Director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, has been our Artistic Director since 2001. Grace Chiang, renowned Hong Kong choral conductor and soprano, is appointed as Principal Conductor of the choir in 2015."
