Creativity Day

Date & Time

7 - 8 Apr, 2023 1pm - 3pm


Laundry Steps


Free of charge


Over the Easter weekend, The Hearth celebrates the creativity and energy of our future generation. Since Tai Kwun’s opening, the Laundry Steps has become a well-loved performance space by the cities’ established and up-and-coming musicians as well as music lovers. The Easter weekend, sharing the same week as the Children’s Day, is the best time to dedicate this unique performance stage to children.

Spanning across two afternoons, the young a capella group from Tunes Academy and three different choirs from the Hong Kong Children’s Choir, one of Hong Kong’s most long-standing choir of its kind, will present a diverse range of folk, pop, Western and Chinese music, illustrating the children’s interpretation of our world through their youthful voices.

Date: 07.04.2023 (Friday)
Time: 1pm – 1.30pm & 2:15pm – 2:45pm

Tunes Academy

In this chaotic yet hopeful world, let’s pause and listen to what the kids want to say to us.

It may just be a simple reminder or a warm embrace. The songs the kids are going to sing are to remind us that we are only human. They will bring us back to the happy feelings we used to feel when we were kids. Together we shall write a letter to our future selves, let it reminds us the beauty of PRESENT. May the bright future starts now.

Time: 1pm – 1:25pm, 1:45 – 2:15pm & 2:40pm – 3pm

The Hong Kong Children’s Choir: Chorusma

The beauty of choral music lies in the interweaving and integration of multiple voice qualities and textures. Three teams of members from junior to youth sections of The Hong Kong Children’s Choir (HKCC) will perform a range of Chinese and western repertoire to showcase the dazzling quality of choral music. The sheer expressiveness, coupled with the sincerity of the crystalline child voice, adds to the rich imagery of the piece.

The Hong Kong Children’s Choir (HKCC) was founded in 1969 as the first children’s choir in Hong Kong. HKCC is a registered non-profit-making charitable organization and it is now the biggest choir in the world with over 5,000 members and has grown into a diversified arts organization for children.

HKCC is invited to perform overseas each year, spreading the message of love and peace in different parts of the world. The Choir has been gaining an international reputation as the “Little Goodwill Singing Ambassadors” and “one of the best children’s choirs in the world”. As the children’s choir that best represents Hong Kong, HKCC took part in many historical moments, including the Hong Kong Handover Ceremony in 1997, the Opening Ceremony of the Hong Kong International Airport in 1998, the Hong Kong Disneyland Grand Opening in 2005, and various performances to commemorate the anniversary of Hong Kong SAR Establishment Day.

In 2019, HKCC presented “Asia Pacific Choral Summit 2019 in Hong Kong” and “Hong Kong Choral Conducting Competition” to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Choir, and garnered “Award for Arts Promotion” at the 14th Hong Kong Arts Development Awards in 2020. The Grand Original Musical in Cantonese King of Singers produced by HKCC in 2021 is selected as one of the Top 10 Music Headlines 2021 by RTHK as well.

About “The Hearth”

We believe everything in life can be an inspiration of arts, and everyone can unlock their artistic potential through participation and appreciation. By bringing people together to share a time and a space, performing arts can create bonding and memories that are unique and relevant to those on and off the stage.

“The Hearth” is a regular thematic programme to explore how performing arts can connect people from different communities and create synergy. By integrating music, dance, theatre, films, literature and more, each monthly programme is designed to look into how performing arts can nurture creativity, establish identity and care for wellbeing. These programmes are curated and led by creative and academic professionals across various sectors, presented in a range of performances, workshops, screenings, games, talks and more to encourage participation, evoke thinking and stimulate discussion around topics that concern us.
