A World War One Tribute Concert
In May 2014 for our spring concert, we dedicated our concert to all those who fell during World War One from all nations. We sang many well known WW1 songs, accompanied by war poems – HK$15K of proceeds went to the Hong Kong and China Branch of the Royal British Legion. Thanks to the British Consulate in Hong Kong for hosting this event at the amazing Opus.
In 2012, we celebrated our 50th Anniversary with 3 concerts (Easter, Summer and Christmas) – please see below for further information.
Freedom Concert in celebration of our 50th Birthday was with the Welsh Choir and the HK Women’s Choir on September 27th 2012 at St John’s Cathedral. We sang a powerful mix of African and American Slavery Songs, Anthems and Choral Tributes based around the theme of ‘freedom’. The main beneficiary charities were the Child Welfare Scheme (HK), Olgas Promise and the Moonlight Foundation Nepal (MFN) who kindly helped organise the event and sponsorship . Conducted by Ronald Lam and Howard Topper. This event raised HK$78K (net) and we all really enjoyed singing with each other.
Spring 50: To kick off our 50th Anniversary celebrations, our Spring 50 Concert on May 3rd 2012 was themed around Herbert Howells – A Hymn for St. Cecilia and also included songs by Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, C.V Standford, Thomas Morley and R.Vaughan Williams. Conducted by Jennie Wong Yat Tsz.
