Choral music has long been considered as a foreign artefact that came to Asia over a century ago. After years of experimentation and assimilation, composers have developed unique solutions to the tension between the vernacular language and the western functional harmony.

In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Hong Kong Voices presents the second concert of Contemporary Choral Music series, bringing forth works by four Asian composers. Inspirations are drawn from various Chinese and Western literature—Daodejing, Song Dynasty lyric poems ci, mystic medieval poetry, modern classics by Robert Frost and H. C. Andersen—, as well as Chinese and Japanese folk tunes. Come join us for a soirée of poetry and contemporary music!
