The singers are all women and usually sing three part a cappella (mixed voices in harmony). The choice of songs is eclectic: jazz, pop and from cultures worldwide.
Teresa, a music teacher specialising in the clarinet, leads the choir because of her experience. Although an Aucklander, she formed and led a choir in the New Zealand town of Wanaka before moving to Hong Kong.
Sai Kung Choir’s recent performance in the Relief for Refugees concert at the Academy drew “fantastic” audience reaction, Teresa said. They sang alongside African drummers, such an enjoyable experience they will be doing it again.
