GESPS Choir in Hong Kong Disneyland
Gan Eng Seng Primary School’s Participation at the
2012 Winter Choral Festival,
Tsuen Wan Auditorium & Disneyland Hong Kong
3 to 7 December 2012
Between 3 to 7 December 2012, 34 of our GESPians participated in the 2012 Winter Choral Festival held in Hong Kong. The Winter Choral Festival is designed to provide an educational and positive music learning experience for developing choirs.
Through the band concert presentation, adjudicator’s workshop, sight-seeing in Hong Kong, Performance Arts Programme in Disneyland Hong Kong (where our Choir sang and performed for an international crowd at the Park) and the Gala Dinner (where ourGESPians had the chance to be up-close-and-personal with Mickey & Minnie Mouse) scheduled over the 5-day-4-night festival programme, our GESPians’ choir members were elevated to a newfound level of artistic creation-and-appreciation.
Our choir was evaluated based on: stylistic performance: fidelity to score, artistic expression, interpretation and style; overall artistic impression: choice of programme and presentation; technicality: diction, dynamics, rhythm and intonation of the choir; and vocal quality: tone, balance and blend of the choir. Our Choir received a Silver Award and was also presented with one group Disneyland Performance plaque, one group photograph and personalized certificates for all GESPians’ participants. This is truly an once-in-a-lifetime, meaningful and rich learning experience for all GESPians’ choir members.
