Led by tenor David Quah, Bel Canto Singers is committed to introducing a wide range of vocal music to the local and international audiences, from Baroque to contemporary and classical to jazz, blending eastern and western influences. Bel Canto Singers collaborates with local composers in numerous operas, musicals, recordings, overseas tours and productions. Aspiring to amplifying the voices of Hong Kong, Bel Canto Singers continues to educate local young musicians.
