The Hong Kong Children's Choir
The Hong Kong Children's Choir (HKCC) was founded in
1969 as a private non-profit-making charitable organization.
Established with only 39 members, HKCC is now the biggest
choir in the world with over 5,000 boys and girls receiving
choral, dancing, arts and craft training from the Choir. Each
year, touring groups are invited to give performances overseas,
spreading the message of love and peace to other parts of
the world. The Choir has been well received and applauded
in over 24 countries, gaining an international reputation as
"one of the best children's choirs in the world" and "the Little
Goodwill Singing Ambassadors from Hong Kong". In 2003,
HKCC was awarded the "China’s Top Ten Children Chorus".
This Summer, HKCC took part in 2006 Tianjin International
Children’s Culture & Art Festival, XVI Europa Cantat Mainz
2006 in Germany; and won the “Award of the Audience” in
Vivace International Choir Festival in Hungary.
Back To Artists
Apart from touring overseas, HKCC organizes and takes part
in charitable events. Fund raising events organized by HKCC
include: the 12-hour “Chorathon” to raise fund for children
with hearing problems in 1999; “Bridges of Friendship, Bridges
of Songs” Concert for the Hong Kong Association of the Deaf
in 2001; and the “All for Love” Concert for SARS victims in
2003. The Choir is also frequently invited by local government
and organizations to perform in special occasions. Over the
years, HKCC has witnessed and took part in various historical
events like the Hong Kong Handover 1997, the Opening of the
Hong Kong International Airport in 1998 and the Opening of
Hong Kong Disneyland in 2005.
