Virtual Choir Project
HKICF is committed to promoting choral music as a means of social engagement and empowerment. Starting from 2023, HKICF will collaborate with different social welfare organisations every year to organise virtual choir activities, hoping to use this opportunity to spread messages of love and care through singing and to raise awareness of the underprivileged groups in society.
Last year, we partnered with the Children’s Cancer Foundation, with more than 2,200 students from 60 secondary and primary schools singing together to show their support and encouragement for children with cancer.
This year, we will join hands with the charity “New Sight Congo” to break through geographical boundaries and bring students from Africa and Hong Kong together through choral music and support the charitable work of Hong Kong people in an eye hospital in Africa. We invite all choirs in Hong Kong to participate in this meaningful event for free. Participating choirs will receive sheet music, instrumental and voice demonstration recordings provided by the choir festival, as well as professional filming and recording guidance to assist choirs to record the new song. The virtual choir connects different groups of society with music, and enriches the learning experience of the students.
