To commemorate HKICF’s fifth anniversary, we commissioned Mr Leon Ko to compose the theme song “今天一起唱的歌” for HKICF 2022. The theme song will be premiered in the opening ceremony of HKICF 2022 !

This is only the beginning of an exciting journey ahead. HKICF plans to commission new choral pieces from Hong Kong artists each year, so that we can build a collection of works which Hong Kong schools can use in rehearsals, performances and competitions. We will also work with the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong Limited (“CASH”) to host premieres for the compositions and introduce the artists to the public.
