Message from the President
For the past 70 years, the Hong Kong Schools Music and Speech Festival has brought together young people, to celebrate their creative talents. It has been my honour and privilege to see firsthand how these young artists, through music and the spoken word, have amazed, inspired and motivated their audiences. It is therefore my great pleasure to congratulate the Hong Kong Schools Music and Speech Association as they celebrate this milestone.
This platform, where young people can indulge their passion in performing Western and Chinese music or literature, has become one of Hong Kong’s most anticipated annual events. In fact, both the Music and Speech Festivals have over the years also become one of the largest events of their kind in the world.
I salute all those who are involved in the Festivals. I am grateful to the Association for their commitment to nurture the talents of the city’s youth and I am astounded by the level of talent and ability of all the participants.
May the next 70 years be as joyful, moving and successful as the past 70.
Congratulations to everyone!
