We want to thank our last director Mark Anthony Petty for his time, talent, and dedication in leading our group from 2019. His fantastic job performance is greatly appreciated. Wishing him the best in his concerts abroad and all his music career.

We are excited to start our rehearsals after long break and always looking for a new talent. Now is the best time to join our group.
