合唱團簡介 (About the Choir)

 

港優秀兒童合唱團

香港優秀兒童合唱團(簡稱「優兒」)由石信之擔任藝術總監,團員須通過嚴格的面試才獲取錄每位都具有音樂演藝天份。近年教育界提倡多元智慧理論,音樂智能是其中重要一環。石先生認為,音樂不僅提升兒童的文化修養,更能激發他們對其他事物產生興趣。「優兒」的宗旨是為兒童提供優質、專業及多元化的音樂教育,以發掘其音樂潛能。除合唱訓練外,團員亦可學習樂理、樂器、舞蹈和戲劇。香港優秀兒童合唱團師資優良導師大多數持有音樂專科文憑,甚至具博士學歷,部份導師更曾攻讀兒童心理學務求為本地培育傑出的兒童合唱團及兒童交響樂團。為使團員增強自信及擴闊視野,本團每年都舉辦合唱工作坊及週年音樂會,亦經常應外界邀請,在重要的音樂節及藝術節作表演嘉賓。暑假期間亦會前往外地作巡迴演出。

 

Hong Kong Choir of Outstanding Children

Headed by Maestro Henry Shek as its artistic director, the Hong Kong Choir of Outstanding Children aims at providing professional and quality music education to children in a very diversified form.  Young children who have potential in music and the performing arts are selected through open auditions to become members.  The choir not only offers training in choral singing but also in music theory, ears training, instrument playing as well as drama and theatrical dancing.  The teaching staff is well qualified in their mission to train up an outstanding children’s choir and children’s orchestra locally.  The majority of them possess a diploma in music, while some have knowledge in child psychology. Mr. Shek believes that music education plays an important part in the upbringing of children nowadays, as the contemporary “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” considers music as an important intelligence among the seven intelligences.  Not only does music nurture the cultural life of children but it also helps to motivate children’s interests in other fields.  Apart from classroom learning, members also have the opportunity to perform in choral workshops and annual concerts organized by the choir.  The choir is often invited as performing guest in important music festivals and arts events.  Performance in overseas tours is a regular event in summer.
