We strive to bring about a revolution in music history, by introducing new concepts into music shows, and by making our every performance highly professional, entertaining and inspiring. For this, we established The Show Choir Hong Kong, a choir that emphasises both performing and technical training. During the rehearsals, apart from teaching music knowledge, we also stress on training performance skills so as to boost the quality of each and every performer, in the hope of creating the best show choir experience for our audiences.
Red Vocal Academy adopts an all-round vocal method - in addition to classical vocal techniques and methods, contemporary developments in pop music and culture are also incorporated into our curriculum. Our students have performed for various organizations and charities including The Ronald McDonald House, Elsie Tu Education Fund and Caring For Children Foundation, and have worked with world-renowned stars such as Lang Lang and Eason Chan. Moreover, in 2012, a selected group of outstanding students traveled to Los Angeles upon invitation for an exchange performance. In 2016, over 120 of our students have recorded in our first Christmas album - Red Christmas, it has also reached HMV Chart No.4. Red Vocal Academy aspires to provide an innovative music education and take vocal music in Hong Kong to new heights!
