木樓合唱團為室內男聲合唱團,1999年成立至今秉持「男聲合唱藝術精緻化」的理念,透過追求完美的演唱,呈現深度藝術性的音樂內涵;透過歌者與聽眾間心靈感受的對話,傳達出音樂精緻的美感。2013年起由彭孟賢老師擔任藝術總監暨常任指揮。

根據德國國際文化交流基金會(Interkultur)公布的最新排名,木樓合唱團於世界千大合唱團(TOP 1000)項目排名第五,室內合唱團(Chamber Choirs & Vocal Ensembles)項目更是連續三年蟬聯冠軍寶座,證明了木樓長年於男聲精緻合唱的成果,更用頂尖藝術代表臺灣展現文化的軟實力。

為延續臺灣合唱音樂的創作能量,木樓自2011年起推動「本土男聲合唱委託創作計劃」,邀請作曲家與文學人進行創作、譜出在地聲響,以男聲合唱深刻展演臺灣人文之美。木樓堅持提供詩詞創作的環境,深度結合文學與音樂,為木樓藝術創思之本。

「木樓」之名,源自於建國中學古老的木造音樂教室,數十年來培養出許多熱愛合唱的青年,他們藉著歌唱,在各自的生命經歷裡找到相同的感動,也譜出一段段令人動容的音樂記憶。這是木樓的精神根基,也是前進的動力。

Müller Chamber Choir

Founded in 1999, Müller Chamber Choir is a 30-strong male choir that aims to introduce the finest blend of male choral sound to the choral scene. Since 2013, the choir is led by Meng-Hsien Peng as conductor and artistic director and has achieved prestige as one of Taiwan’s foremost choral groups.


The youthful male choir participated in the 9th International Johannes Brahms Choir
Festival and Competition in July 2015. It was named category winner in Folk, Sacred and
Male Choir categories and took home the Grand Prix. The choir’s competition pieces stood out as richly varied and sophisticated, garnering high praise from the panel of judges with respect to musical interpretation and artistry.

 

In July of the following year, the choir went on to participate in the 9th World Choir Games 2016: Champions Competition, receiving gold medals in Male Chamber Choirs, Musica Sacra a cappella and Musica Contemporanea categories. Notably, the Taiwanese choir was declared Champion of the Male Chamber Choirs category with a record high score of 97.38. Out of 20+ choirs competing in the Musica Sacra a cappella category, the male choral group came in a close second, with a slight margin of 0.12 points against top score. INTERKULTUR world rankings as of November 2017 place Müller Chamber Choir #3 among top 1000 choirs and #1 in the Chamber Choirs & Vocal Ensembles category.
 

In July 2017, the choir had the honor to sing in Singapore International Choral
Festival as feature choir, the performance of which was streamed live over the Internet for global viewers. At the invitation of Malaysia Sin Chew Daily, the male choir later held another concert in Kuala Lumpur. In the same month, it travelled to Fuzhou, China to give a full-length concert in the 1st Cross-strait Choral Seminar.

 

Müller Chamber Choir takes upon itself the mission to create a distinctive Taiwanese
male voice repertoire. Since 2011, it has commissioned composers and writers to
collaborate on projects with the potential to bring out the multi-faceted depth and richness of the male choral soundscape. The completed productions include Requiem pro Amor (2011), Literature via Music (2012), Compose and Sing: Music of Our Land (2013), Songs of the Isles (2014), Wish I (2016), and Wish II (2017).
