“The Virgin Mary is a very important figure in the Roman Catholic Church. That’s why we like to dedicate an evening to her as we prepare for Our Lady’s Assumption,” said Ms Jessica Ng, local performer and a Catholic.
The concert features both secular and sacred vocal interpretations of Mother Mary through the ages. “As worshippers experience the divine love for Christ through Mary’s gaze, so can we deepen our love for Christ through music and contemplation,” Ms Ng added, “We chose ‘Stella Maris’ as the theme coz Mother Mary is our guiding star to Christ the Lord.”
Herself a soprano, she will partner with Ms Pheobe Tam (soprano), Ms Jeannette Lee (mezzo-soprano) Mr Isaac Droscha (baritone), Ms Cheryl Chan (violin) and Ms Ariele Zanini (piano) in the concert to be held in the evening of 13 August at The Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre, HKAPA.
