Arrangements of the 72nd Hong Kong Schools Music Festival in the Outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (Release Date: 7 February 2020)

In view of the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus and the health of all participants and staff, the Association, after considering the recent situation and discussing with the Education Bureau, decided to hold only the Original Composition Class (N872). Classes and events involving live performances, including “Choral Workshops for Teachers” originally scheduled in late March, are cancelled.

The Hong Kong Schools Music Festival has been committed to providing a platform for young students to showcase their music talent. It is most regrettable that we need to make this difficult decision in face of the imminent health threat. The Association will provide details about the refunds of entry fee by phases for the Music Festival on 13 March 2020. Participants of the Original Composition Class (N872) will be informed of the competition arrangements through members individually. For enquiries, please contact us at 2761 3877.

We want to express special gratitude to our sponsors, venue partners, the Education Bureau, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and members who have been selflessly offering help and support during this period of time. We would also like to thank the schools, parents and students, for their kind understanding and continued support. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused due to the cancellation and we hope all participants stay healthy.

We look forward to seeing you next year.
