2024 World Youth & Children’s Choir Festival cum
1st Greater Bay Area Choir Festival – Hong Kong

Artistic Director : Prof. Leon Tong

The World Youth and Children Choral Artists’ Association (WYCCAA) is excited to announce details of the “2024 World Youth & Children’s Choir Festival cum 1st Greater Area Choir Festival”: 15 - 19 Jul 2024.

"I am excited to announce that, after 5 long years, our flagship choral festival is finally back! We are thrilled that pop singer Mr. Alan Tam has accepted our invitation to be Festival Ambassador, while Mr. Warren Mok, Chairman of China Musician’s Association -- Hong Kong Members Branch, has given us his full blessings. Over the last few years, despite the challenging circumstances we maintained an online festival to facilitate international musical exchanges. I strongly believe that it is now right time to reinstate our live festival, providing an invaluable opportunity for experts, conductors, choirs and choral lovers alike from all around the world to gather in Hong Kong, to enjoy our unique platform to perform and compete, to pursue artistic excellence, and to celebrate love and peace. Thank you to all our supporters and associate organisations, jury members and guest choirs. We are looking forward to meeting you!"
