Due to immense and enthusiastic support from HKUAA members, HKUAA Choir has had its first rehearsal and inaugural dinner on Saturday March 23. Dr. Michael Ryan, our Music Director is seen here leading choir members through the songs at the HKUAA club premises in Central. Two major performances will be staged in June 2013 and the details of which will be released at a later date.
(The evening's Inaugural Dinner was attended by President Mr. S.Y. Tse and 2nd Vice President & Convenor of HKUAA CHOIR Ms. Lucy Cheung, together with Executive Committee members, guests and choir members)
Objectives: A. Performance
1. At HKUAA Alumni Nite 2014 2. At Hong Kong University events 3. At HKUAA’s community service events, e.g. Home for the Elderly; Municipal Hall; Schools… 4. A special a cappella group to be formed for events that do not provide musical instruments
B. Camaraderie amongst HKUAA members
1. As a channel/means by which to get to know more alumni members, be they of varying age group or occupation. 2. As a platform for music lovers – not only for singers. 3. One way to enhance our lifestyle.
C. Choir's Reserve Fund for emergency and development purposes
1. As a fund-raiser, a choir is able to attract sponsors and attendees to its performances, given time and maturity. 2. HKUAA CHOIR might be able to occupy the niche now unavailable to HKUAA since our sole income earner is from our catering services. 3. The CHOIR has the advantage of being mobile in nature. It can outreach to places outside our club premise, all around Hong Kong, and even in the far future stage performances outside of Hong Kong!
Music Director: Dr. Michael Ryan
