Tour around Sino Malls

(Hong Kong – May 7, 2018) A cappella, which refers to choral music sung without instrumental accompaniment, is an emerging genre in recent years. From 3 to 5 June, Sino Group taps Whim ’n Rhythm, an esteemed a cappella female choir from Yale University that counts international celebrities the US presidents among its audiences, to present 5 performances at the Group’s malls in town. What’s more, the group will conduct a couching session on the pitch-perfect unaccompanied singing techniques, where the audiences will revel in an extravaganza of music featuring outlandish imitation of the sounds of musical instruments.

A Sublime Indulgence in the Awesome Power of Pure Voice

For the public to enjoy an intimate rendezvous with a cappella music, Whim ’n Rhythm will tour tmtplaza (Tuen Mun Town Plaza), Olympian City, Citywalk,  Gold Coast Piazza and Lee Tung Avenue from 3 to 5 June. In each performance, 14 seasoned female vocalists from Yale will showcase their spellbinding virtuosity of pure vocal harmony that blows the audience’s mind.

The programme features a diverse repertoire that ranges from contemporary pop hits to classic tunes cherrypicked from the group’s self-released albums, including Like a Star, I Can't Make You Love Me and more to enchant the audiences with exceptional skills. The audience will also be introduced to a cappella techniques to gain a thorough understanding of the genre and create tunes with pure voice or simulate instrumental sounds in an innovative exchange of passion for music.

Since its inception, the choir has achieved global acclaim and performed in venues ranging from academic institutions to embassies and to the White House. Boasting a diverse repertoire ranging from jazz standards to classic tunes, and from contemporary pop hits and traditional folk ballads, Whim ’n Rhythm is revered as the best university a cappella choir for its virtuoso sound.
