Fall is here. Why not slow down your pace of life to Andante - 92 BPM (Beats Per Minute) and enjoy some a cappella by 3 distinct ensembles, Brio, The Pelicans and Medipella? They will bring you oldies, jazz, Canton pop and more.
Brio was founded in 2008 by a group of choral singing enthusiasts who have been training together since they were teenagers. The group has performed at many events, including a Guinness World Record-breaking banquet with over 23,000 audience members in West Kowloon in February 2013.
Later in 2013, Brio composed and recorded the jingles for “Music is All Around”, an RTHK radio program. In May 2014, the group was selected to perform in an a cappella master class taught by the world-renowned group The King’s Singers. Brio’s members attended The King’s Singers Summer School in 2015 and 2017 in the UK, and organised the first Purple Vocals Pop-Up Studio in Hong Kong – Vocal Ensemble Workshop by Paul Phoenix.
The group’s repertoire is diverse, ranging from sacred music, folk songs, contemporary classics, musical numbers and original remixes.
Members: Sue Ann, Janet, Rebecca, Bianca, Alice, Hilda, Wilson, Andy, Roy, Wai
In the summer of 2014, a group of music-lovers and singers from Hong Kong attended the World Choir Games in Riga, Latvia, and were inspired by The King’s Singers. So in January 2015 they formed an a cappella group. They later named it “The Pelicans” because, as they explain, “The pelican is a symbol of Christ our Redeemer; for, as it was reputed to feed its young with its own blood to save them from death, our Saviour shed His blood to save us from death eternal.”
Members: Belyndia, Monique, Selina, Daphne, Julianna, Denise, John, Roger, Isaac, Lawrence, Siu Man, Colin
Medipella is a combination of the words “medical” and “a cappella”. This represents a bunch of medical doctors who love to share music through a cappella singing. Medipella is founded in 2015 and staged its first fund-raising concert in that year. Since then, it has participated in several concerts, singing a variety of songs including pop, jazz and rock in a contemporary style.
