The Hong Kong Oratorio Society (HKOS) is a non-profit-making organization founded in 1956 by Mr. Theodore Huang and a group of music enthusiasts who believed that singing beautiful music would bring joy to singers and listeners alike. It further helps to enhance our personal quality and provide citizens with rich spiritual and cultural life.
From a humble start with a handful of music enthusiasts to over a hundred members of different nationalities, the HKOS – guided by generations of great musicians – has become the most active choir with the longest history and the largest membership in Hong Kong. It usually presents 3-5 concerts per year with a total of more than three hundred concerts performed since inception. Its repertoire covers oratorios and major choral works by classical and contemporary composers. They include the masterpieces of Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Chinese composers Xian Xinghai and Huang Zi. Many of these works were debuted in Hong Kong.
