The Hong Kong Oratorio Society (HKOS) was founded in 1956 by Wong Ming-tung and a group of music enthusiasts. It is one of the most active choirs with long history and large membership in Hong Kong. HKOS usually presents five concerts per year with a total of more than 300 concerts presented in the last 50 years. Its repertoire covers oratorios and major choral works by classical and contemporary composers. They include the masterpieces of Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Chinese composers Xian Xinghai and Huang Zi, etc. Many of these works were debut in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Oratorio Society

HKOS takes its name from its favourite genre of repertoire, the oratorio, which refers to extended choral works with religious or mythological stories. In recent years, HKOS has commissioned composers Chan Wing-wah, Victor Chan and Huang Anlun to compose choral works for them. The choir has performed under the batons of many famous conductors with various professional orchestras. It has also gone on concert tours overseas and in many major cities in the Mainland. The present Music Director, Prof. Chan Wing-wah took over the baton after a few successful collaborations with HKOS since 1995.
