Sound of My Heart – Vocal Recital by Michelle Siu

Silvery vocals and eclectic enchantment as young soprano movingly explores emotional ties

“Without love, humanity could not exist for a day,” declared German social psychologist Erich Fromm. 

Love is also the central theme of the songs performed by lyric soprano Michelle Siu in her debut solo concert. Gifted with a pure and versatile voice, according to her first vocal teacher, Maggie Lai, the visually impaired soprano was admitted to the Junior Music Programme of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) at the age of 12. She is a recipient of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships in 2017, and later graduated from the Department of Music at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She is currently studying for Master of Music at HKAPA under the tutelage of wellknown soprano Prof. Nancy Yuen.

Demonstrating her diverse repertoire, Siu will undertake classical, musical numbers and pop songs that delve into the ups and downs of romantic relationships. Works include Schubert’s Gretchen am Spinnrade, Debussy’s Nuit d’étoiles, and “Think of Me” from The Phantom of the Opera. In Siu’s own composition, O Daddy and Mummy, she pays tribute to parents with visually impaired children, including her own, while for “Nella Fantasia” the young rising star will be joined by Lai.

The latter song, which envisions a fairer world where everyone lives in peace and honesty, reveals close parallels with Fromm’s idea of the ultimate form of love, extending out from loved ones to the world and eventually to life itself.

Prepare for a sonorous and stirring rendezvous with hope, joy, risk and reflection.
