The Hong Kong Children’s Choir (HKCC) was founded in 1969 as the first children’s choir in Hong Kong. HKCC is a registered non-profit-making charitable organization and has made tremendous contributions to children’s art training in Hong Kong. It is now the biggest choir in the world with over 5,000 members and has grown into a diversified arts organization for children. Under the supervision of Kathy Fok, the current Music Director and Principal Conductor, and more than 100 professional tutors, choir members not only develop their artistic talents but also learn the importance of team spirit through interesting and well-organized practices.


HKCC is invited to perform overseas each year, spreading the message of love and peace in different parts of the world.
