Chinese Children’s Choir

Angels of their Art

“Made in China “is a familiar tag on many articles for sale in stores around the world. But how about a Children’s Choir that is “Made in China!”
This Sunday’s Music and the Spoken Word will feature 30 singers of the CCTV Galaxy Children’s Choir in their second appearance with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. They first performed with the Choir in a 2007 broadcast. They are accompanied by musicians from the Secondary Art School of the Art College of Inner Mongolia University that will play on traditional Chinese instruments.

This premier choir is part of Beijing’s China Central Television Station. Founded in 1961, the entire group includes 150 children, ages 6 to 15, in five different divisions. These gifted young musicians promise to be a stirring addition to the Sunday morning program with beautiful voices, endearing smiles and love for song. They bring their own directors, accompanists, chaperones and perhaps even a film crew for broadcasts back home.

The Children’s Choir and musicians are seen frequently on Chinese television and are often featured in national events including the Chinese New Year programs, a tradition for family gatherings. They have traveled in Asia, Europe and the Western United States. For their 40th year celebration they performed with the famed Vienna Boys Choir. They have thrilled audiences in Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Switzerland, Germany, France and Austria. News reporters have applauded their performances; one writer said, “They are the angels of their art–the best children’s group in Asia.”
