The Hong Kong Inter-School Choral Festival 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop HKICF’s mission of making choral music accessible to all. While the competition cum masterclass was cancelled due to the pandemic, we successfully hosted a series of in-person and online workshops for music teachers and conductors, where we a number of renowned local and international choral experts were invited to share their knowledge and insights. Over 400 music teachers and conductors from primary and secondary schools joined our various workshops.
This year, we have brought new elements into HKICF as well. This is our first time hosting the “Dialogue with Music Teacher” session where we invited Mr Felix Shuen, Music Director of Diocesan Boys’ School, to come and share how he dealt with the everyday practical problems faced by music teachers and conductors. This also serves as a platform on which music educators can discuss and find solutions to the problems that they face.
