December Christmas Concert
A Christmas Fantasy by HKOS
Cancellation of Concert Program on 20th December 2020
In light of the latest COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong Oratorio Society decided to cancel the Christmas concert scheduled for 20 December. It is a difficult moment, but, for the sake of health and safety of our audiences and performers, we have to make the decision reluctantly.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
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 choral singing and music would bring joy to the singers and the listeners alike, as well as enhancing the personal quality and enriching the spiritual and cultural life of the audience.
From a humble start of a handful of music enthusiasts to over a hundred members with 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 five concerts per year with a total of more than three hundred concerts presented over the past years. Its repertoire covers oratorios and major choral works by classical and contemporary composers including the masterpieces of Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Chinese composers Xian Xinghai and Huang Zi, etc. Many of these works were debuted in Hong Kong.
