History & Mission:

The Hong Kong Bach Choir is one of Hong Kong's longest-established and finest choirs. From a small group of 15 music lovers gathered for a single performance in 1969, the Choir has developed into a year-round, multi-national ensemble of more than 80 members. The HKBC presents a wide repertoire, from the Renaissance to World Premieres, while concentrating on music of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. We present two concerts at major venues each year, as well as a variety of more specialized performances.
