Croeso

Our choir was started in 1978 by a small group of expats in Hong Kong and now we have some 70 members from a dozen different nations. Over the years we have performed on conventional and unconventional stages at home and overseas. We are an entirely amateur group and many of our performances are for charity. We frequently perform in Hong Kong and we travel as often as we can to sing in places in the Asia region such as Thailand, the Philippines, China and Vietnam. We have also performed at prestigious places and events such as the Festival of male Choirs at the Albert Hall in London and Sydney Opera House.
