Welcome to the ICOHCMC website. We are delighted that you have shown an interest in our organisation and hope that you will find all the information you require.
The ICOHCMC had a wonderful 2016/17 season with some exceptional highlights. Last year we packed St Paul’s Convent Chapel, District 1 in HCMC and lifted the roof with music from our Choir, Chamber Choir, Orchestra and for the first time, our congregation too! It was a truly magical experience and one that I cannot wait to repeat again this year!
In May 2017, the ICO were involved in a very special project that included the newly formed FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) Youth Choir of HCMC. Along with a Jazz Quintet our Choir, Chamber Choir & Youth Choir gave the Asian premiere of Zimbe! a cantata written by Alexander L’Estrange. The first half of the concert showed off the orchestras talents performing with the various choirs works from Handel through to Rutter.
With our eyes now firmly fixed on the next musical season (2017/18), we are looking for new members for both our Choir and Orchestra. If you are interested, please click on the ‘Auditions’ tab above to find out more information.
For current ICO choir members, we will start back officially on Monday 11th September at Soul Music & Performing Arts Academy (SMPAA) at 7.15pm. You can find the SMPAA at 214 – 216 Pasteur Street, District 3, HCMC.
