Choralia, Wells' upper voices choir who launched their first international CD on the Naxos label last May, delivered a Christmas Special tour to Hong Kong in December 2015.
As guests of the Wells Music Society of Hong Kong, the choir, accompanied by Wells' specialist pianist and harpist, Kirsty Chaplin, gave performances in schools in Macau and Kowloon Tong, including Wells' partner school, Alliance Primary School. A large number of the Alliance Primary parents joined the concert and prepared a wonderful lunch for Wells' students and staff; they recalled with great affection the visit their children made to Wells in summer 2014.
Choralia also performed in the City Plaza and Pacific Place shopping malls, on radio and TV broadcasts (click here to watch Choralia sing on XXTV) , in a joint concert at the Academy for the Performing Arts, with APA students Xinai Ruan, Chun Yiu Alexander Chen and Xiyuan Zhen, and gave a private recital at the renowned Hong Kong Club.
The crowning glory was a magnificent concert at City Hall, where Choralia performed Karl Jenkins' Adiemus with the Hong Kong City Chamber Orchestra and Britten's Ceremony of Carols, accompanied by Kirsty Chaplin on the harp, with not one but two encores!
