Abstract

Huang Tzu is one of the most influential composers and music educators in the history of contemporary Chinese music. He dedicated his life in his compositions and teaching, and his life reflected the great culture and spirit of music composition and education. This project initiative is based on a series of successful research and publication projects on Huang Tzu. The project focuses on a series of events including workshop, rehearsals and recording of Huang’S work with HK institute of education chorus & south china normal university chorus. The aims of the project were to further enhance student’s knowledge & experience in stylistic choral singing performance of Chinese choral work; fostering student’s musical and professional excellence through the choral exchange activities; deepening collaboration with southern china normal university for academic and student exchange in future; enhancing communication and development of scholarship of the academic staff in choral & music education; and providing unique experience for students in studying, teaching and researching Chinese choral arts. The effectiveness of the projects are evaluated in the following ways: choristers are required to evaluate on their learning experience through questionnaire survey and interview; choristers from the two institutions expressed their view on the participated events through questionnaire survey; and Chinese choral experts are invited to provide feedback on choristers’ overall performance in rehearsal and recording sessions.
