Chorus of the Opera Society of Hong Kong
Chorus of the Opera Society of Hong Kong was founded by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic singers.  They come from all walks of life and share a common desire to promote opera and musical theatre to the people of Hong Kong.  Since 1992, the Chorus has performed in the former Urban Council's productions under the direction of Chorusmaster and Chairman Raymond Fu.  In 1996, the Chorus presented A Night at the Opera in association with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta with great success.  1997 was another exciting year for the Chorus.  Performances included Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with Sir Neville Marriner and St. Martin in the Fields presented by the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and Melodies of New Era Concert in the 97 Reunification Music Festival.  Recent productions include opera double bill The Divorce & The Lamp of Everlasting Light as well as the film and music project Voices of Light / The Passion of Joan of Arc presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, both with rave reviews.  Highlight of the Chorus's future performance will be Handel's Messiah Concert with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra with Samuel Wong, the new Music Director, in April 2001.
