College Choirs Awarded Multiple Gold Awards and a Special Jury Prize at the Taipei International Choral Competition 2022

The Treble Choir and Senior Mixed Voice Choir participated in the Taipei International Choral Competition (TICC) 2022 held virtually this summer, and were awarded a total of six Gold Awards in all the categories they entered into; and were Category Winners of the Children Choir class and Vocal Ensemble class respectively.

Using the virtual project “While I Breathe I Hope” which was produced in the early days of the pandemic in 2020 and entering as “Voices of St. Paul’s Co-educational College” for the Virtual Choir category, this special ad hoc choir –consisting of Council members, Principal and Headmistress as well as staff, students, staff and alumni – added another Gold Award to the tally.

A total of ten category winners were then entered into the Grand Prix where a 10-member panel voted for the top three grand prizes. Our College’s Treble Choir, presenting the song, This Earth of Our (這地球) in the final which also features the PMG String Quartet, was awarded the Third Prize among an elite group of winning choirs.

Last but not least, the adjudicating panel presented our College as a whole a Special Jury Prize for Professional and Inspiring Education of Singers. This is a recognition of the highest order which testifies to our unwavering commitment and devotion to uphold the long-standing tradition of our College.
