Our school has established different kinds of music activities for students, which include Choir, Chinese Orchestra, Western Orchestra and various joint school music function. In addition, our school offers about forty instrumental training classes for students every year.
BSTC Chinese Orchestra
Our Chinese Orchestra has been established for more than twenty-five years. It aims at cultivating our students' appreciation of love for Chinese traditional music as well as propagating the Chinese culture. Most of the members come from the various traditional Chinese instrumental training classes set up by our school PTA music promotion team. It consists of students from Form 1 to Form 7. In these few years, weekly practices are held on Friday with their conductor, Mr. Cheung Wai-fung. Under the leadership of Mr. Cheung, our orchestra has fruitful experience in public performance and got outstanding results in both Hong Kong School Music Festival and LCSD Hong Kong Youth Music Interflows Chinese Orchestra Contest.
Our school choir is divided into junior and senior teams, with more than eighty members in total. They have regular voice training every week under the leadership of our school choir conductor Miss Helen Kwok. Within the short period of time after its establishment, it gained remarkable achievements. It won the first three places in the Chinese Section for Girls in Schools Music Festival and Choir Singing Contest organized by the Hong Kong Buddhist Association for nearly ten years. All of choir members are energetic and passionate. They always act as a role to motivate our schoolmates to enjoy singing.
BSTC Western Orchestra
Our school orchestra was formed in 1997. Our mission is to develop students' interest and foster their love of symphonic music. The orchestra members mostly come from F.1 to F.5 students. All talented players gather on every Wednesday after school and make progress on their skills and musical sense with Ms. TY Yam. Throughout the years, the orchestra provides different kinds of performance for our school events.
