The Opera Hong Kong Chorus

The Opera Hong Kong Chorus was established in 2004. The Chorus was directed and developed by Mr. Jimmy Chan who established it as one of the leading choirs in Hong Kong. Mr. Chan retired from the position of Chorus Director in 2013 and was succeeded by Mr. Alex Tam who is well known locally for his operatic performing skills as well as being an accomplished choirmaster. The Chorus has attained new heights of artistic excellence.

Unlike their full-time counterparts in professional choruses in other major world cities, members of the Opera Hong Kong Chorus are all part-time singers from all walks of life. Whilst there are currently more than 60 active members, the Chorus’s size and composition varies according to requirement of each production. This pool of gifted singers includes current music students, highly qualified graduates, music teachers and experienced performers, all of whom have been selected by competitive public auditions.

Since making its debut in December 2004 in La Traviata, the Chorus has participated in over 15 fully staged operas including the Opera Hong Kong productions of The Magic Flute in The National Centre for the Performing Arts of China in 2009 and the world premiere of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen in Hong Kong in 2011. In addition to major productions, the Chorus gives public recitals of works such as The Verdi’s Requiem and operatic excerpts, including choral and solo performances, with the aim of promoting opera and high quality choral music in Hong Kong.
