Abstract

This study aims to investigate whether it is valuable to implement speech choir practice at The Education University of Hong Kong. 15 members from The Education University of Hong Kong Chorus were invited to attend speech choir practice and perform two speech choir pieces at Speech Choir Demonstration Performance (afternoon concert) on 5th July 2015. The two pieces were Every meal earned is a meal spent (餐餐搵食餐餐清) and In the Quiet of the Night (靜夜思夜靜) written by Prof. Tsang Yip Fat Richard and Dr. Leung Chi Hin respectively. The practices were 2 held by them. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected. All participants were invited to complete an online questionnaire in response to their speech choir practice and demonstration performance experience. Three participants were invited for an in-depth interview so as to understand more about participants’ behavior and expression during the speech choir experience. After analyzing the data of both the questionnaire and interviews, a positive result is shown. The findings can serve as a reference to explore the possibilities of promoting speech choir in primary and secondary school choir in Hong Kong. Suggestions are made for further development of speech choir.
