School Band

Ho Fung College School Band is one of many music groups sponsored by Sik Sik Yuen. It aims to provide systematic and high standard training and performing opportunities for Ho Fung students. It was established over 30 years ago and the first important performance was in the First Hong Kong Youth Band Festival in 1979 with Mr. Lee Fu-Ngon as the conductor.

To develop the music talent of Ho Fung students, the school invited Mr. Tossponapinun Yongyut to be the Music Director and Conductor of the band in the mid-1990s. Besides offering intensive training, Mr. Yongyut also helped to form a feeder band in the school year 2007-2008 with members from the school instrumental classes. At present, the school band is made up of 80 members and is divided into junior and senior sections. Their rehearsals are held on Tuesday and Friday afternoons respectively.

Apart from regular weekly rehearsals, the school band stages shows periodically. It has been invited by different organizations to perform at special functions. Over the past two years, the band has performed over 20 times. In December 2008, Ho Fung College School Band once again participated in the Hong Kong Youth Band Festival and won the ‘Bronze’ award. And in February 2009, the band was honourably invited to join the ‘Hong Kong Cultural Festival’ in Tsuen Wan Town Hall.
