Due to restrictions caused by the pandemic, the annual trans-Pacific Cantonese opera project – Multi Voices One Heart (MVOH) – will go virtual in 2020 to satisfy fans’ hunger for this well-loved heritage art.
Included as part of the 25th Festival Accès Asie (the oldest festival based in Montreal celebrating Asian Heritage Month in Canada), the MVOH Anti-COVID-19 Cantonese Opera Benefit Concert will be live streamed from Hong Kong in five parts over two days (May 23 & 24, HK time). This free marathon concert will feature over 9 hours of fine singing by some of the best practitioners (including several super stars!) in this field.
As the co-presenter, PCHC-MoM will be providing information in English about the artists and songs closer to the time of the concert. For now please subscribe to either social media platforms below:

They will also match every dollar raised during the concert for “Anti-COVID Lunch Boxes” for the disadvantaged in Hong Kong up to a maximum of about $28,000 (HKD). In additional, a pledge has just been made to donate to $10,000 (HKD) per year for three years to create a doctoral scholarship at the Education University of Hong Kong.
