Voices that are moved by heart and emotions resonate endlessly.  Starting from scales, we echo our desires in life through singing.   Under the direction of Taiwanese conductor Shanglun Wu, CU Chorus will perform his meticulous selection of choral pieces at With a Song in My Heart Concert, embarking on a journey from the origin of Western music: scales.  Through a series of Renaissance and contemporary a cappella pieces connected through Bach’s piano works, we invite audience to join us in searching for the hopes in life.   Resonances are always there, just because we have a song in our heart, just because we are not forgetting.

Mr Wu is reputable in the Taiwanese music field for his profound understanding and thorough analysis in music.  He served as conductor of the Taipei Philharmonic Chorus and Taipei Philharmonic Chamber Choir, and had worked with international orchestras including the National Symphony Orchestra.   Apart from his commitment in music education, he was invited to perform widely in the States, Canada, France, Mainland China and Korea, etc., and served as the assistant of Maestro Helmuth Rilling of Germany and Maestro Gabor Hollerung of Hungary.  Mr Wu is a regular member of Juries at choral competitions including the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival.  


His repertoire is diverse, covering a wide range from Renaissance and contemporary a cappella pieces to vocal-instrumental works of the Baroque and Classical period.  He is also experienced in coaching choirs for large-scale choral orchestral works.  Mr. Wu focuses on performing and lecturing of the works from the Baroque and Classic periods, especially of the works by J.S. Bach, and also devotes himself in the under-processing project of the annotations and literal translations of the German librettos of cantatas and oratorios into Chinese. He is also the artistic advisor of the vocal ensemble Canto Sei, based in Taipei, and was invited as artist-in-residence of the Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus (2019/20).​
