Choral group to perform Bach's "Mass in B Minor"
A concert by the Hong Kong Chamber Choir under the baton of Irish conductor Michael Ryan, with Hong Kong Soloists and six local vocalists will feature Bach's "Mass in B Minor".
The concert will be held at 8pm on Monday, May 2, at the Auditorium of Sha Tin Town Hall. Solo singers participating are Rosaline Pi (Soprano), Clara Yip (Soprano), Ray Chan (Counter-tenor), Sam Lau (Tenor), Patrick Chan (Bass) and Brian Montgomery (Bass).
Established in 1999, the Hong Kong Chamber Choir promotes and performs small-scale and a cappella choral works. The choir also believes a good solo vocalist should also be a good ensemble singer and so it places great emphasis on vocal (as individual) and choral (as chorister) technique. Over the years, the group has given a number of successful performances.
The Hong Kong Soloists comprise a group of professional musicians and active performers on the local classical music scene. Their mission is to offer a high standard of playing in the world of classical music for medium and small-sized orchestras with special focus on solo, orchestra and concerto works including vocal repertoire. The group hopes to provide an active performance platform for local musicians in Hong Kong. It also hopes to introduce to audiences rarely performed works for small-sized performing groups.
