Lutheran Academy

Lutheran Academy

 

La Musique de Chambre L.A. was founded and conducted under the baton of Mr. Nicholas Ching in 2010 when the school, The ELCHK Lutheran Academy was first operating in September 2010. In the first year, there were only four members in the ensemble due to a small student population. In 2013, forty members were recruited in the orchestra among 600 students in the school.
This orchestra was a mixture of primary and secondary school students. The youngest musician is only 7 years old whilst the oldest musician has just passed his 15th year of age.
The orchestra has performed a few times during internal school events and celebrations.
This concert tour is their premier, sharing the joy of music with all music lovers.

Special Thanks to the Lutheran Academy Scholarship and Assistantship for financial support of La Musique de Chambre L.A.
