MVOH 2020 Cantonese Opera Concert Goes Virtual!
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.
