Hwa Chong Choir Sings Their Way to Impress International Jury at Two European Music Festivals

Hwa Chong Choir Sings Their Way to Impress International Jury at Two European Music Festivals

by Marcus Mok • 18 Oct 2020

The Hwa Chong Choir impressed international jury, and sang their way to the First Prize cum laude, at the 60th European Music Festival for Young People, held in Neerpelt, Belgium !

Held annually, the festival caters to choir and instrumental ensembles in alternate years.  Each year, the festival draws four to six thousand young people, from all over the world, to pit their musical talents.
 

The HC Choir then headed to the 58th Cork International Choral Festival, in Ireland, where they participated in the Fleischmann International Trophy Competition.  A highly prestigious competition, only 12 choirs from 9 countries were selected from over 30 applications this year!  Once again, the HC Choir’s flair for music was affirmed by the panel of judges: they were accorded 2nd runner-up!
 

We heartily congratulate the Hwa Chong Choir, her conductor, Miss Lim Ai Hooi and teachers-in-charge, Mrs Lim Shufen and Mr Colin Loy. They have, once again, placed Hwa Chong Institution and Singapore on the international music stage.
