“HKCC & Friends” Concert Series first started 10 years ago in 2009. To celebrate HKCC’s 50th Anniversary and commemorate the contributions and achievements of the choir, HKCC alumni, friends and over 2,000 choir members gathered and presented 2 concerts at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall on 7 April.

Outstanding performers from different art forms were invited as special guests. They include Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra; Mr Harry Wong, renowned children TV program host; Mr Warren Lee, pianist; Set Tone Men, a cappella group; Ms Alison Lau, soprano; Heartgrey, National Beatbox Champion; as well as vocalists: Mr Albert Lim, Mr Alex Tam and Mr Apollo Wong. Working hand in hand with HKCC members, varied works from classic hits to original works by special guests were showcased at the concerts. These collaborations brought sparks to children choral music.


The concerts concluded with guests and choir members singing Composer in Residence, Dr Steve Ho’s HKCC 50th Anniversary Theme Song I Just Want to Sing.   Music Video of the song with HKCC historical and classical moments was first broadcasted during the concerts.
