It was a pleasure to be able to see this wonderful choir from Beijing, China. These 22 boys and girls range in age from 8-12 years old and were kicking off their Canadian Tour in Exeter at the Trivitt Memorial Anglican Church. They were hosted by the Bach Music Festival of Canada.
The room was full of talent that night. We were treated to a piano prelude by Marissa Li before the performance even began. The Angel Voice Choir was conducted by Chao Li who also had an amazing part himself with the choir singing solo during one of their pieces. The Choir performed some songs from Hayao Miyazaki who is a Japanese film director, as well as some religious songs. One of my favorite parts of the evening were the solos performed by Houxuan Song and Sihan Ma, this is where their voices really shined.
We also got to hear performances from some of our local talent, the Cantabilettes and sisters Sydney and Amelia Harvey. To top things off, at the end all of the singers came together and performed some Canadian folksongs, it was a wonderful way to end the evening.
