The Hong Kong Women’s Choir is a registered charitable organization, founded by a group of dedicated women, both expatriates and from Hong Kong, with a common love of singing. Within this organization, there are two sister groups: NOVA, the core group of singers performing to accompaniment and The Grace Notes who sing a cappella (unaccompanied). Rehearsals are held weekly and fundraising concerts for local charities are run each year in May and December.
As a registered charitable organization, the objectives of the choir are to perform (in our own concerts, at private functions and public venues) to raise funds for Hong Kong charitable concerns while bringing music to the Hong Kong public. To date, we have helped organizations such as The Home of Loving Faithfulness, Against Child Abuse, St. Barnabas Society, St. John’s Counseling Service, Youth Outreach, the Hong Kong School for the Deaf, The Children’s Cancer Society and The Hong Kong Vocational Center, to name just a few.
At rehearsals and other meetings, the choir continues to explore ideas to broaden our efforts to bring charity and our music to Hong Kong. In recent projects, we have joined up with ImpactHK to perform to the homeless in Tung Chau Park at Christmas time which we hope to make an annual event, and at our regular performances at China Coast Community Elderly Home, we have challenged the residents to join in with some sing-a-long numbers the coming Christmas – let’s hope they’ve been rehearsing!
