About the Performers

National Experimental Chorus, Taiwan, R.O.C.

 "Established in 1985 with the support of the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, the chorus has a 19-year history with over 400 performances.  It has performed worldwide on numerous occasions and has accompanied tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras.  It has accepted invitations by Giuseppe Sinopoli and Kurt Mauser to perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Dresden Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra respectively and regularly turns out for important national celebrations.  Its repertoire includes the folk songs of China, art songs, songs of praise, masses and choral operas.  The chorus is composed of 80 members most of these are students of voice, many with excellent records of foreign study.  Currently the group rehearses twice a week, and is already the most in-demand national-level chorus operating in Taiwan.  It is working towards the goal of becoming a fully professional chorus."
