At the age of 20, he was selected to present academic paper in the 2nd Chinese Composers’ Conference (2013). His choral work, A Retrospect was selected to be performed in the International Society of Contemporary Music (ISCM) World Music Days in Poland (2014), making him the youngest Hong Kong composer representative ever in this event. Also, his wind-orchestral work, Reunion, was also selected to be performed in the 33rd Asian Composer League Festival & Conference (2015).


Besides, he has been a frequent holder of scholarships and awards, including the Ng Tai Kong Memorial Scholarship (2013) and Academic Creativity Award (2013).

Since his studies in the secondary school, Chan has focused on choral arts. He is active in both local and international choral scenes, including the World Choir Games, Taipei International Choral Festival, Hong Kong International Youth & Children’s Choir Festival and sacred music services. In particular, Chan was invited to conduct the background choir for the internationally known rock & roll band, Rolling Stones during their world tour concerts in Macau (2013). Apart from choral conducting, he is active in the wind-orchestral medium as a conductor, arranger and composer, aiming diversified music development.


Before his time in London, Chan had been serving St. John’s Cathedral as chorister and All Saints’ Cathedral as organist in Hong Kong for more than eight years. Currently, Chan is serving as the Director of Music at John Keble Church in London, a member of the Hong Kong Composers’ Guild, a member of the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong (C.A.S.H.) and the resident artist of Hong Kong Youth Windophilics.
