Guangdong Guangya High School

 

Founded in 1996, Mixed Chorus of Guangdong Guangya High School has ranked first in Guangzhou’s Chorus Festival for Middle Schools and Primary Schools for many times. It’s worth mentioning that, in the last two festivals, it has won two mixed chorus championships for its striking performance in succession. In the 10th Guangzhou Chorus Festival for Schools in December 2006, it won the first prize in the final. In 2007, invited by the Polish government, it gave a wonderful performance in the “Polish National Chorus Festival”. Recently in the 11th Guangzhou Chorus Festival for Schools in 2010, it remained to be among the first three prizes in the final.
There are 75 members in the chorus now, all of whom are music lovers from every grade, ranging from Junior 1 to Senior 3. Singing practice is set for all members every week. Since “harmony” is the notion and tradition of running Guangya High School, we hope that through choral training, students can have a better understanding of the idea of harmony and the spirit of cooperation, and grow up to be a good person with both virtue and ability.
