About Yat Po Singers

The first professional A Cappella choral theatre company in Hong Kong. The founding Co-Artistic Directors are Patrick Chiu, Ng Cheuk-yin and Yuri Ng. Currently led by Ng Cheuk-yin and Anna Lo as the Co-Artistic Directors, the Company focuses on producing and developing original works in order to promote A Cappella art and demonstrate the innovative interaction of music and theatre. Besides, the Company aims at enriching the arts scene particularly by nurturing young composers and artists, audience building and arts education.

The Company’s first A Cappella theatre production Rock Hard received the CASH Golden Sail Music Award in the Best Serious Composition category from the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong in 2009. In 2015, the Company received the Award for Arts Promotion from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. Another A Cappella theatre work, Our Immortal Cantata (Re-run), was awarded The Best Original Music & Lyrics, The Best Sound Design and also one of The Best Productions of the Year by the 26th Hong Kong Drama Awards in 2017. In 2019, the Company’s collaboration with City Contemporary Dance Company Requiem HK was awarded the Outstanding Large Venue Production. In 2020, Love, Death, and Everything In-between, was awarded The Best Lyrics by the 29th Hong Kong Drama Awards.

Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in 2019-2022, the Company organized a three-year elderly A Cappella choral and life enrichment project: “Jockey Club Yat Po ‘Happy A-ge-cappella’”, which motivated the elders by cultivating their talent, strengthening their self-confidence and bonding with people through the A Cappella training programmes and activities. 

Throughout the three years training, the elders performed with experienced singers, with the aim of connecting the two generations. The elders also gained opportunities to perform on stages and made music videos which drew the public attentions to create an inclusive society. In 2023, the Company was recognized for the project and awarded the Award for Arts Promotion and Education by the 17th Hong Kong Arts Development Awards.

With the kind support by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Company begins a new chapter of “Jockey Club Yat Po ‘Happy A-ge-cappella’” in 2023-2026, and continues to bring positivity to the society through A Cappella.
