The Closing Ceremony and Finalists’ Night of the 2019 World Youth & Children’s Choir Festival (WYCCF) International Choral Competition took place on Wednesday 17 July 2019 at Tsuen Wan Town Hall in Hong Kong, China.

The event saw choirs from across the world perform onstage in advance of a grand prizegiving with trophies and cash prizes donated by the World Youth and Children Choral Artists’ Association (WYCCAA).

Winners in nine categories performed repertoire ranging from traditional Chinese folksongs to contemporary choral music such as Stephen Leek’s Impossible Birds, which was sung by the winners of Category A2 – Children’s Choirs (aged 16 or under), Jazz-choir of Sverdlovsk State Children Philharmonic from Russia.

While the Jury retired to consider their overall verdicts, the audience was treated to a stunning performance by WYCCF Resident Artists, Hamilton Children’s Choir from Canada, conducted by Prof Zimfira Poloz (also a member of the WYCCF Jury).

Final winners were announced to tumultuous applause as delighted choir members took to the stage to receive their awards from Jury members and WYCCAA President and WYCCF Artistic Director, Prof Leon Shiu-wai Tong.

The evening ended with a symbolic handing over of the WYCCF flag by Prof Leon Shiu-wai Tong to Xie Shui-tu, Representative of Zhejiang Radio & Television Group (ZRTG), from the city of Hangzhou, China, which will host next year’s festival and competition.
