Latest Online Arrangement for HKICF 2022 Events

Thank you for giving your enthusiastic support to HKICF 2022!

Keynote Presentation & Opening Ceremony Will be conducted online via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent out in a separate email.
Workshops for Music Teachers & Conductors

Mass School Choir Masterclass All sessions will be postponed until further notice. If the sessions cannot be scheduled by the end of June 2022 due to COVID-19 or venue availability, mass school choir masterclass will be cancelled;
Competition cum Masterclass The Competition cum Masterclass sessions that originally take place between 25th and 27th January at the Tsuen Wan Town Hall Auditorium will be conducted in the form of video submission mode. Details are as follow:

  1. Choirs are required to video record their choirs’ performances, and upload them to Google Drive. The link to the Google Drive should then be emailed to [email protected]. The deadline for submitting the videos will not be earlier than the end of March, and maybe further postponed if the pandemic restriction continues.
  2. The video submissions will be reviewed by two adjudicators.
  3. We will compile the video submissions, together with the comment given by the adjudicators into one video, which will be shared with the teachers of the choirs. The teachers should share and review the videos together with their students.
  4. Upon receiving the first round of comments, choirs can choose whether they want to submit another round of recording or not. The adjudicators will then provide another round of written comments for free; Alternatively, the choirs can choose to engage the artistic director or the adjudicators to personally coach your choirs

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to all participants. Despite the restrictions, we still hope to create as many educational opportunities for our participating students and teachers as possible with our new arrangements.

If you have any enquiries, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or 5742-4721.

Competition cum Masterclass Timetable is READY!

The 5th HKICF Competition cum Masterclass is in full swing! Timetable and order of appearance for schools are ready. Below please find the links for the details.

(1) Primary school timetable and order of appearance

(2) Secondary school timetable and order of appearance

Unlike conventional choral singing contests, HKICF conducts choral competitions in the form of masterclasses. The emphasis is on learning and improvement rather than competing to win an award. At the end of each performance, the adjudicating panel offers instant feedback on stage .  Each choir will then sing again, incorporating the feedback and suggestions it received. Through this exchange, students on stage and in the audience both benefit from the adjudicators’ constructive comments.  From our experience over the years, we found that under this format, students listen much more carefully and thoughtfully.

Frequently-Asked Question 常見問題

1. Is it possible to participate in BOTH the Competition & Masterclass and Mass School Choir Masterclass?

Yes, each school can enrol in BOTH the Mass School Choir Masterclass and Competition & Masterclass at the same time. 

每間學校均可以同時報名參與大型學校合唱大師班和比賽暨大師班。

2. Will Mass School Choir Masterclass only take place physically?

大型學校合唱大師班將會以甚麼形式舉行?

Mass School Choir Masterclass will be conducted in both physical and online format.

For online format, the entire event will be recorded.  For schools that cannot take the students to attend physically, the students can participate in the event by watching the official recording. Both the participating schools and students will be awarded with certificates of participation.

If a school wishes to participate via the online format, please contact us at [email protected]

大型學校合唱大師班將會以實體及網上形式進行。

有關網上形式,整場活動將被錄影。未能到現場參與的學校可透過播放官方錄像參與活動,而學校及學生亦可獲得參與証書。

如果校方希望以網上形式參與大型學校合唱大師班請電郵至[email protected] 聯絡我們。

3. Is there a quota for enrolling into the Competition cum Masterclass / Mass School Choir Masterclass for each school?

大型學校合唱大師班 / 比賽暨大師班有否爲每間學校設下參與團數限制?

Subject to the space limitation for each competition / masterclass time slot, there is no limitation as to how many choirs from a school can apply for entry into Competition cum Masterclass / Mass School Choir Masterclass. Each school can also apply for both Junior and Senior divisions simultaneously.

Since we will endeavour to ensure each school can take part in HKICF2022, therefore we will let applying schools know in early November their final application status, e.g. the number of choir(s) each school has successfully enrolled into our activities.

視乎比賽或大師班每段時段的名額限額,我們並不會限制每間學校為多少隊校內合唱團報名。我們亦歡迎每間學校同時報名參加初小及高小或初中及高中組別。

我們為致力確保每間學校都能夠參與香港校際合唱節2022,因此我們將會於十一月上旬公佈報名的最終結果,例如:每間學校為多少隊校內合唱團成功報名合唱節的活動。
