Hong Kong Melody Makers (HK)

The Hong Kong Melody Makers (HKMM) is a youth choir established in 2004 by The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups with sponsorship from The Dragon Foundation. Its aims are to reflect Hong Kong's vivacity and give voice to the city's cosmopolitan spirit. Choir members are dynamic young people with outstanding artistic talent who are guided by Mr. Patrick Chiu, the group's Artistic Director. Their shared passion for music can benefit the entire community and enrich Hong Kong's cultural life by promoting choral and a cappella music.

HKMM is well-known for its numerous vocal bands, which perform styles such as vocal jazz and pop in a smaller group setting. They have been invited to represent Hong Kong overseas, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, China, Taiwan and Macau. In 2009, they won the “Golden Harmony Award” (first place), the “Best Vocal” award and the award for “Best Arrangement” at the 3rd Asian Youth a cappella Singing Competition in South Korea. They have also worked with many local artistes including Eason Chan, Kay Tse, Chet Lam, Hins Cheung, Khalil Fong, Ivana Wong, Peco Tsui and Jonathan Wong.

Being a well-established choir, HKMM also received encouraging results at the 6th World Choir Games 2010, where they won a Gold Medal in the Chamber Mixed Choir (Champions Competition) category. They also performed under the baton of maestro Helmuth Rilling in 2011 and 2012.

In 2012, Members of the Hong Kong Melody Makers sang in Australia and New Zealand by invitation of the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office. The tour included Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Auckland, as well as a concert at the Fringe World Festival Perth 2012. They were also honoured to perform at the Opening Ceremony of the 40th Hong Kong Arts Festival and in “Grand Variety Show in Celebration of 15th Anniversary of the Reunification” TV show in the same year.
