Guangzhou Yucai Experimental School Treble Choir

Guangzhou Yucai Experimental School Treble Choir

 

The Choir of Yucai Experimental School was founded in 2003 and since then it has become a distinguishing feature of this school. The choir has not only fostered a considerable number of children who have a deep love for music, but also enriched the campus life. When Guangzhou is a city with a long history of chorusing, the choir of Yucai Experimental School has been displaying impressive vigor as a new group and it claimed three successive championships in the Middle School Choir Competition in Guangzhou in 2003, 2006 and 2010. In 2007, the choir was even invited to give a performance on the Ceremony of celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Return of Hong Kong and Golden Chinese Redbud Get-together Activity and they won the gold award as expected. Along with that, in the July of 2008, they participated in the fifth World Chorus Competition held in Graz, Austria and finally returned successfully with a silver award.
