Scout Association of Hong Kong Performing Arts Units
Scout Association of Hong Kong strives to educate young people for their physical, social, spiritual and aesthetic development. Incorporating performing arts in Scouting programmes would create synergy in the development of young people and thus, the Association established Hong Kong Scout Band. The Band is one of the well-known units of long history in the Association.
To further promote performing arts, the Association set up Performing Arts Committee and founded Performing Arts Units in 2003, consisting of the Scout Band, orchestras and choir. Under the support and advice from the Committee, Performing Arts Units organize activities for the development of young people's interest and talent in performing arts, and creativities.
In 2011, the Scout Band was deployed to the Association Public Relations Branch and Performing Arts Units were restructured in June 2014 to improve efficiency. The reshuffled units operate under the supervision of Deputy Administration Commissioner and committees are set up to underpin the units. The committees provide advice and support in organizing trainings and activities, and formulating future development plans.
There are four performing arts units in the Association at present, namely Hong Kong Scout Chinese Orchestra, Hong Kong Scout Percussion Group, Hong Kong Scout Orchestra and Hong Kong Scout Dancing Group, which operate under the charge of a Scout leader assisted by other adult leaders. The units provide regular training programmes at different levels and organize performance activities for member to develop their talents and skills.
To give opportunities for member to enrich their performing experience and to widen their horizons, Performing Arts Units plan to organize regularly various joint performance activities. Moreover, the units will take the opportunities to introduce performing arts to Scout member, parents and Scout leaders to raise and extend their interests in this respect.
