About the choir/关于合唱团

Nine Gates Polyphony is a chamber choir formed in 2012 to bring the sounds of polyphonic Renaissance music to life in Beijing. Each performance combines the a cappella voices of diverse women and men who share a love of this ancient style of song.

The name Nine Gates recognises the ancient city gates of Beijing which, like polyphonic music, are relics of history kept alive through our shared recollections.
