Zhuhai No. 2 High School Red Kapok Choir

Zhuhai No. 2 High School Red Kapok Choir

 

Zhuhai No.2 High School Red Kapok Choir was founded in 1996 and the choir develops steadily under the leadership of the conductor Mr. Shang Lihua. The choir provides a platform for the music study and the improvement for the art quality of the students. We firmly believe that Science ought to earn the favor from the God of Art and Education can never be complete without the education of music. With this belief in our minds, our choir has been undergoing a steady and smooth growth in the past years. Our choir won the gold award on behalf of Zhuhai in the 3rd National Children’s Choir Competition held in Yunnan, Kunming. During the past years, we have won national gold award for one time, provincial gold award for twice, and municipal gold award for about 12 times. The choir keeps a stable No. of 40-60 members.
