About the East West Gala Chorus
A non-profit organisation, East-West Gala Chorus was founded by Annie Pang in 2015. We meet regularly to explore repertoire both familiar and unusual and to build vocal skills which compliment your own choral commitments. We hold ensemble training sessions in informal learning sessions in Central London.
Come and join the East-West Gala Chorus to work with Mark Oldfield, our resident Vocal Coach. Singers with a music or choral background are welcome.
Initially set up to perform opera choruses in a charity gala for the Lord Mayor of the City of London, we have sung in Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, Hebrew and European languages at *the Fishmongers’ Hall in aid of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal * the Company of Mercers’ Chapel * China Exchange Cultural Centre * St Thomas’ and Guys’ Hospital Chapels*
COME AND SING WITH US
New singers are always welcome to join in our exciting journey of music making.
The choice of music for this season will be tailored to the individual singers’ ability and interest, and at their own pace, with the option to sing in ensembles. A variety of pieces will include works beyond the standard choral repertoire written for the EWGC, works introduced in our past workshops and repertoire which will support of vocal training.
Examples include works by Armstrong Gibbs, Vaughan Williams, Finzi (English); Ariel Ramirez (Spanish), Schubert (German).
Contemporary composers: Sarah Hudson, Samuel Louis (Dai Hai 大海/ Loong Di Chuan Ren 龍的傳人) medley arranged for EWGC (Chinese) and Ramya Thiyagarajan (Latin and Sanskrit); and traditional songs in Japanese, Hebrew, Hungarian and Slovakian.
A subscription will be payable in advance to cover costs (excluding music). Details on application.
