LIVE RECORDING COLLECTION
hong kong voices
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 acclaimed works such as Bach's St. John Passion, Mozart's Vesperae Solennes de Confessore and Brahms' A German Requiem. 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.
We have collaborated with many leading local artists as well as 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 Fauré's Requiem. We are also involved in cross-media projects such as Samson Young's music theatre Electric Requiem-God Save the Queen (2009), and Muted Situations #5: Muted Chorus (2016) that appeared in his first Europe solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf. We believe that music lives beyond the concert hall: from 2010 onwards all our live concerts have been captured by claying's studio and are archived on the Internet for educational purpose.
Ken Lam, currently Music Director of Charleston Symphony Orchestra and Illinois Symphony Orchestra, has been our Artistic Director since 2001. Grace Chiang, award-winning Hong Kong choral conductor and soprano, is appointed as Principal Conductor of the choir in 2015.
