Born and raised in Hong Kong, Daniel Lik-chi Lau (b. 1998) is a composer and baritone currently based in Manchester, United Kingdom. He is a member of the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong (CASH) and the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
As a composer, Daniel is inspired by everything from miscellaneous events to current affairs. He aims to integrate theological beliefs and thoughts, to address social phenomena and issues, and to emerge Cantonese language characteristics in his compositions. He hopes to engage people through his compositions, which combine reflective and dramatic elements. This is because he believes that music reflects the times and confirms the age of mankind.
Daniel is currently pursuing a Master of Music in Composition at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) under the supervision of Professor Adam Gorb and Professor David Horne. He has collaborated with the BBC Singers, RNCM Brand New Orchestra, Hong Kong Youth Choir, Kantos Chamber Choir, Hong Kong Wind Kamerata, Piatti String Quartet, Cong Quartet and Aqua Voice.
Growing up in a Christian environment, Daniel has served as worship band music director, worship leader, singer, pianist and arranger at his church. His religious background provides inspiration and insight into many of his compositions. These include Creation, Joy Cometh in the Morning, Vanity of Vanities, The Apostles’ Creed, Kyrie and How Long, O Lord? (Psalm 13).
Graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Daniel is trained as a well-rounded musician in composition and performance. He studied composition under the tutelage of Professor Lee Wan Ki Wendy, Professor Chan Kai Young and Dr. Lo Hau Man, and studied classical vocal performance under the tutelage of Mr. Caleb Woo Wing Ching. As part of Daniel’s graduation concert, he not only performed in various genres including classical, musical theater, and pop, but he also premiered some of his own compositions and arrangements.
To enrich expression and to increase versatility in his composer-performer career, Daniel is keen to be involved in various types and forms of performance, as well as to have exposure to different genres of music, so as to acquire a wider range of knowledge and experience.
As a member of the Hong Kong Youth Choir (HKYC), Daniel’s recent solo performances include Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle and Martin Palmeri’s Tango Gloria. During his university years, he was the chairperson of Chung Chi Choir and a committee member of Aqua Voice. He also studied choral conducting with Ms Vivian Yip Wing Wun.
Daniel has also taken part in numerous staged music performances, including HKIAC x Actors’ Family “Cinematic Memories on Train No.5” (Musical), Ponte Singers and Orchestra “East Side Story” (Musical), The Mills “Living up to HER” (Dance immersive Theatre) and Hong Kong Arts Festival x Neworld Theatre “King Arthur’s Night” (Drama). Meanwhile, he performed as a narrator on several occasions in collaboration with MIT Saxophone Ensemble from Taiwan and Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra.
Daniel has been developing a hybrid singing style that combines elements of pop singing style with classical vocal training. As an enthusiast for pop music, Daniel is especially interested in singing and songwriting. He was a champion of the CUHK Singing Contest and Chung Chi College Singing Contest. In 2020, he participated in the production of Eman Lam’s plug “Till we meet again" as one of the five singers in the male choir. Daniel also started his YouTube channel “Dancisum", which has over 1.5 million video views.
