School Choir Incubator Programme

HKICF is our first step towards nurturing a more sustainable inter-school choral singing culture in Hong Kong. Besides providing one-off performing opportunities through our annual choral festival, we have come to realise that schools and music groups also need longer-term support to develop and grow their choirs.

 

In 2021, we conducted a survey among music educators to understand what they are looking for. We interviewed over 60 music teachers and conductors from primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. 99% of them identified (1) Professional guidance and (2) Performance opportunities as the most urgent needs of their choirs.

 

Therefore, to better serve teachers’ and choirs’ needs for professional guidance, HKICF launched a new HKICF Plus initiative,“School Choir Incubator Programme” (Pilot Scheme) in September 2021.
