"Voices of Hope" by Music for People is an upcoming classical concert that promises to transport audiences into the rich world of 19th-century romanticism through the masterful compositions of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Antonín Dvořák. With a symphony orchestra, a hundred-member choir, and expert direction by Dr. Audrey Chung, this event marks Music for People's 5th Anniversary, as well as their first live concert since the pandemic. It aims to usher in the New Year with joy and positivity, using the power of music to inspire and uplift.
Music For People's past performance on Dvořák's Mass in D was recognised as one of the very best renditions of Dvořák's original text, with a large choir and orchestral accompaniment. For "Voices of Hope", you can expect the same immersive experience with the hundred-member choir and prominent Asian vocalists, including Soprano Dr. Jessica Chen, Mezzo-Soprano Anna Koor and Tenor Peter Chung and the MFP Festival Orchestra.
"Voices of Hope" is more than a concert; it's a celebration of music's enduring power to extends its reach beyond the concert hall. It engages amateur and professional musicians from the community and the region and supports music education for the underprivileged. Come and join us for this meaningful concert and start the year with joy and hope.
