Live Event (limited no.)* / Zoom

How do we write intelligible ("啱音") melodies for existing text? How do we maintain intelligibility when multiple melodies combine? What should we take care of when preparing scores of Cantonese choral music? How does knowing Cantonese help us be creative in composition? This lecture-demonstration will be focusing on these topics. A short performance by CUHK Music Student Chorus will follow the lecture. Attendees of the live event will be given perusal scores of selected works.
