Taipei Philharmonic Chamber Choir
The Taipei Philharmonic Chorus was founded in 1972 and, through the efforts of its conductors, has put together an extensive repertoire and cultivated a reputation as one of the most prestigious choirs in Taiwan. From the 140 members of the larger Chorus, a smaller 30-voice chamber choir has been established to tour and to perform more selective musical works. This group, known as the “Taipei Philharmonic Chamber Choir (TPCC),” has an impressive history of performing overseas. They have been to all continents of the world, performed in major performance venues in more than 30 cities. They are now one of the most know choral ensembles of the world, and often represent Taiwan, or even Asia in several international events.
TPCC has participated in various International Choral Festivals, such as International Chamber Choir Festival in Latvia in 1995, the 4th World Symposium on Choral Music in Sydney, Australia in 1996, Festival Vancouver in 2000 & 2009, Asia - South - Pacific Symposium on Choral Music in Singapore in 2001, the 6th World Symposium on Choral Music in Minneapolis/St. Paul, U.S.A. in 2002, Oregon Bach Festival in Eugene, U.S.A. in 2006, Zemplen Festival and Cantemus Festival in Hungary in 2007, ACDA National Conventions in Chicago in 2011, Polyfollia Festival in Saint Lo, France in 2013, Next Wave Festival in New York, U.S.A. and Melbourne Festival in 2017, among others.
