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 and has achieved prestige as one of Taiwan’s foremost choral groups.
The youthful male choir participated in the International Johannes Brahms Choir Festival and Competition in 2015. It was named category winner in three categories and took home the Grand Prix. In July of the following year, the choir went on to participate in the 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 with a record high score of 97.38.
INTERKULTUR world rankings as of August 2019 place Müller Chamber Choir #5 among top 1000 choirs and #1 in the Chamber Choirs & Vocal Ensembles category.
In 2017-18, the choir was invited to Singapore, Malaysia and China as feature choir in various choral festival. The male choir went on their journey as one of the five international choirs performing in the National Conference of American Choral Director Association in late February of 2019. In 2020, the choir will perform at the 12th World Symposium on Choral Music in New Zealand.
Müller, a homophonic pun meaning wooden building in Mandarin Chinese, refers to that timeworn, now-demolished wooden structure that was home to the music classroom where founding members first discovered the pure joy of choral music. That timeless space serves as a reminder of the choir’s humble beginnings, youthful passion, and unwavering belief in the power of music to bring peace to those around us.
