Distribution of free tickets for Final Performance of the 20th Anniversary of Schools Creative Music Showcase

     Members of the public are invited to the Final Performance of the 20th Anniversary of Schools Creative Music Showcase, which will be held next Wednesday (January 26) in the Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre. The Final Performance will be held in two sessions - at 3pm and 7.30pm - for primary and secondary schools respectively. Twenty outstanding school teams will stage their creative performances and compete for various awards.

     The Schools Creative Music Showcase is co-organised by the Education Bureau (EDB) and the Hong Kong Composers' Guild, sponsored by the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), and supported by of the Efficiency Unit of the Chief Secretary for Administration's Office. It aims to stimulate students' musical creativity so that they will be able to express themselves through creative music making and multi-media art.

     Arts education can help students develop holistically in the domains of ethics, intellect, physique, social skills and aesthetics, by engaging them in creating, thinking, exploring and self-learning. The annual Schools Creative Music Showcase is an initiative to promote arts education.

     In the Final Performance, each primary school team will select one of the three designated "Sound Projects" for this year, namely "The Sound of Nature", "Rhythm Tour" or "Picturesque Seascape", and interpret the selected project in a performance of not more than five minutes.

     The secondary school teams are divided into two groups, the Elite Group and the Premium Group. Each school team will present their original music with movements, mime or dance performances within five minutes (Elite Group) and seven minutes (Premium Group). All the creative projects this year have distinctive themes, most of which try to reflect real-life problems.
