Conducted by Dr. Shuang Guo, the Chorus was awarded the Gold Award at the 2016 Hakka International Chorus Competition as well as the Silver Prize at the 2014 New York Chinese Chorus Music Competition. They have performed at prominent venues, including Citi Field, Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center, New York City Hall, and the United Nations.
The Chorus is honored to be joined by guest performers, the Haiyun Chorus. Proceeds will benefit Selfhelp Community Services which provides over 5,000 Chinese elders with vital services including financial assistance, affordable housing, and services for homebound seniors.
