Intimate concert

Hong Kong pop singer Hacken Lee is going to transform a stadium into a symphony hall at his concert in Guangzhou this Saturday. His deep rich voice will add allure to the live performances of piano, violin, guitar, saxophone, accordion, harp, guzheng and suona. Four bel canto singers offer vocal accompaniment in harmony. Lee says he and the band will adopt a new technique to make his voice sound closer to the microphone, as if he is whispering the songs into the audience's ears.
