The sensational All-American Boys Chorus makes a welcome return to Hong Kong this summer, six years after the group's previous visit. People are reminded to make reservations for tickets as they are almost sold out.
With their rich harmonies, the internationally acclaimed vocalists will take concert-goers on an enchanting musical journey.
Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the choral concert by the All American Boys Chorus is part of the summer spectacular "International Arts Carnival". It will be staged at 7.30pm on July 30 at the Sha Tin Town Hall Auditorium.
The chorus comprises a collection of versatile young singers: classical, contemporary, jazz, Disney and Broadway musicals, country music, Cowboy and Western Swing, and even Chinese folk tunes are all part of an extensive repertoire.
The Orange County Register appraised: "They are, quite simply, wonderful!" With its inspiring display of youthful energy and musical talent, this amazing choral concert should not be missed.
