It is the aim of Hong Kong Treble Choirs’ Association to promote widely children’s and youth choral singing. The festival is purposed to enhance the quality of choral singing in the territory, as well as to offer choral music and cultural exchange opportunity. Programs include choral and solo singing competition, evening concerts and workshops.
To develop activities for local youth. Each year, approximately 30 overseas choirs and 40 local choirs join together evening concerts and workshops. Through such a shared participation of both local and overseas choristers, cultural and music exchange is an achievement, while children and youth from Hong Kong may gain more knowledge in music and can also develop more interest in choral singing.
To develop art events. There are comparatively few music events of international standard held in Hong Kong, especially in the field of choral music. So the Association hopes that big events like the Hong Kong International Youth and Children’s Choir Festival can give the impetus to development of music and arts in Hong Kong. Produce Hong Kong’s own brand of music.
The Hong Kong International Youth and Children’s Choir Festival is planned to be established as a unique brand of international choral competition, organised biennially to achieve sustainability and to broaden the art community. Besides, the establishment should match up the government’s aggressive planning in cultural and arts development, like constructing new venue for leisure and cultural arts, build for Hong Kong new landmark of music.
