The Greeners’ Sound was founded in 2010 as a mixed choral society. The choir was established by several enthusiastic alumni choristers of Belilios Public School and Wah Yan College, Kowloon, sharing their passion for singing, as well as strong bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. The group now consists of 30-40 experienced singers, both undergraduate and graduate students.
The Greeners’ Sound performs a wide range of repertoire, from Gregorian chants, renaissance motets, folklores, sacred music, romantic songs to contemporary works. Since its establishment in 2010, the choir had performed in different occasions, from local school’s annual concert to overseas music festival. The choir had attained multiple awards. Recent awards included Gold A award in Youth Mixed Voice category in 2013 Hong Kong International Youth and Children's Choir Festival, Championship in Senior Choir (open) in the 65th Hong Kong Schools’ Music Festival, and Bronze Award in Classical Mixed Voice category in 2012 Busan Choral Festival and Competition.
As a young choral group, the choir aimed to act as a platform for young people to share music of various kinds and encourage their participation in Hong Kong's choral community. The choir dedicates itself to present a wide range of choral repertoires to the general public in Hong Kong to facilitate their development in artistic appreciation of various styles.
