Hong Kong Baptist University Choir
The Hong Kong Baptist University Choir (BUC) was founded in 1973 to develop skills in large-ensemble music and to provide opportunities for the study and performance of fine choral literature. The choir currently numbers over 100 students, staff, and alumni of the university. The BU Choir has frequently collaborated with Hong Kong-based orchestras, including the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra, and Hong Kong Baptist University orchestras in performances of major choral-orchestral works. Most recently, it presented the Mozart Requiem, the Beethoven Mass in C, Benjamin Britten・s A Ceremony of Carols, John Rutter・s Gloria, and Daniel Pinkham・s Christmas Cantata. The choir performed Beethoven・s Symphony No. 9 in November 2016 jointly with the HKBU choral ensembles and BU Symphony Orchestra under the directorship of Prof. Johnny Poon for the HKBU 60th Anniversary Gala Concert.

In addition to the choral-orchestral canon, the BUC is branching out into newer choral sounds from around the world, where various traditions are represented from Asia, South America, Africa, and Eastern Europe. The choir・s activities have covered a wide range to include on-campus offerings, performances at major Hong Kong concert venues, community outreach concerts, international festivals in Europe, and tours to Australia and Taiwan. The BUC has performed at the HKBU Department of Music :Colla Voce; and :Musical Collage; concerts regularly since 2012, and it presented Community Outreach Concerts at St. Andrew・s Church in 2012 and St. John・s Cathedral in 2013. Its recordings were also included on the Edition Peters Half Moon Rising website and sample CD.
