|Music Office Children’s Choir
The Music Office Children’s Choir, formerly known as the “Music Office Chinese Folk Singing Children Ensemble”, was formed in 1981 to promote the singing of Chinese folk songs. Recent repertoire, however, includes both western and Chinese choral works, among which are several local premieres.
In addition to regular appearances in Music Office concerts, the Choir has also participated in a good number of invited performances. These include guest appearances in the annual concerts of Tuen Mun Children’s Choir, Shum Shui Po Children’s Choir and Kowloon City District Children’s Chorus, Kowloon City Schools’ Music Interflow, the 1999 and 2002 Hong Kong International Children’s Choral Festival, a joint concert with the Macao Youth Choir presented by the Cultural Institute of the Macao SAR Government in Macao in 2007 and the Hong Kong Children’s Choir’s “40th Anniversary Concert - HKCC & Friends” in 2009. Furthermore, the Choir has also participated in the production of the Summer Youth Programme Theme Song VCD, as well as several operettas, among which were Cinderella, Noah and His Floating Zoo and The Legend of Chang 'E - the Lady in the Moon.
With 63 members aged 8 to 15, the Music Office Children’s Choir is currently trained by May Ho and Yau Man-ching. Recruitment is held annually through open audition.
