Choir Clinic / Exchange

Taking into account the needs of each school, HKICF can arrange experienced choral experts from Hong Kong or overseas to provide one to two hours of professional coaching at your school. During the process, the experts will work with you to understand more about the formation and composition of your choir and based on the choir’s characteristics, provide tailor-made guidance. The clinic session  can include observing the experts in coaching a choir to learn a new piece, so as to strengthen one’s vocal and conducting skills. Each participating school can receive a certificate from the choral experts.

Moreover, the choir clinic can also provide opportunities for inter-school choral exchange, which can enhance collaboration between schools, strengthen bonding between students and broaden their horizons. Schools can choose their own exchange partners, or leave it to HKICF to allocate one. The partnering schools will receive training from our conducting or vocal coach together. To ensure the quality of the exchange, each exchange session will only allow a maximum of two to three participating schools.
