Education is at the heart of SingFest.
The mission of SingFest, a charitable organization, is to provide the highest quality of performances and innovative educational opportunities involving the community of local singers, instrumentalists, audiences and donors. Since 2012, SingFest has launched a series of choral-related education programmes for professional musicians, school teachers, university and secondary students, as well as music enthusiasts, under the guidance of world-class maestros.
In 2015, SingFest presented BACH 330 in celebration of Bach's 330th birthday anniversary with over 25 events including 6 lecture-concerts, Handel Messiah sing-along concert, Bach Mass in B Minor, Christmas Oratorio, conducting masterclass, vocal masterclasses and school tour. BACH 330 had joined hands of local musicians, overseas maestri and artists, as well as broad audience of the general public in this remarkable Bach year, and received critical acclaim. Concluding 2015 were SingFest’s first ever Germany tour and a performing opportunity in RTHK’s production Christmas Concert in the Park – Pastoral Symphony.
SingFest has staged its first Bach im Theater in February 2016. Looking ahead, SingFest will further aim to inspire humanity through the beauty of music by more of Bach Cantatas and exciting programmes.
