The A Cappella World Tour Report (2): Hong Kong Peak
this is a very short post – the reason is that in less than two hours, I’m boarding a train to Frankfurt airport. Again, you might say, and you’re right. If someone had told me that long-haul-flights would become “business as usual” for me, I would have shrugged my shoulders and returned to my desk, looking forward to the next exciting trip to Munich, Cologne, Leipzig or Hamburg. With one phone call, four corporate roadshows (which Sao Paolo is the fourth of) and about 4-5 new US and Swiss inquiries by the same international client, things have changed. Read more about the “Voices of Sales” project in my earlier blog post, “A Cappella World Tour Report (1)”.
Now, before I hop a flight to Brazil I absolutely wanted to share two little videos with you. They marked on of the most exciting short trips of my life, my 4-day visit of Hong Kong and Shenzen, including the taping of the first Sing-Off China episode and a one-day sightseeing trip with my newly-found friend Kwok-tung Fung. Kwok-tung works for Vocalasia, the fast growing Asian organisation for contemporary vocal music. See what we had to say “on top of the world”.

Stay tuned for more footage of the “Voices of Sales” project and more global a cappella fun here on the blog. The next report will show you videos by four groups from four continents, singing the same song in their individual style. And some pictures, anecdotes and impressions from a town of 19.7 million inhabitants: Sao Paolo.
See you in London (August 15th, “Pub & Curry Night with London aca-friends, just drop a line if you would like to join us) and at The Real Group Festival in Stockholm (August 16th-19th)!
