Introduction of CityU Choir


 Founded in 1990, aiming at promoting and developing students’ interest in choral music. The Choir offered members opportunities to perform and to improve singing techniques, and ultimately to enrich the cultural and artistic life of the City University of Hong Kong and the society. At present, there are 51 League members, all of which are CityU students and graduates. The current conductor is Mr. CHENG Chi-san, Christopher.
 Since the founding of the City University Choir, besides performing in CityU Arts Festival, Annual Performance and Christmas concerts at the City Mall, Ocean Park and Hong Kong International Airport, the choir has also travelled abroad to study and perform, such as in Taiwan and Shanghai.
 CityU Choir actively cooperates with other chorus groups, such as Shanghai Foreign Studies University Art Troupe, Guangzhou Xinghai Conservatory of Music, Taiwan National Normal University and so on, providing a variety of learning opportunities for the members.
