The Education Bureau (EDB) organises the Mainland exchange programme entitled “An Exploration into the Music and Culture of Beijing (2019/20)” (the Programme) for students. The Programme, in line with the curriculum, aims at enhancing students’ understanding of the culture and development of music in Beijing and the studying life of music majors there. Students can also reflect on the opportunities for art development in the Mainland and Hong Kong as well as experience the long culture and history of Beijing.


This 5-day programme is scheduled for 21 to 25 October 2019. Details and application procedures are attached at Annex 1 to Annex 3 (Chinese version only).


Each school can nominate at most two groups of participants (each group consists of 10 Secondary 3 to 6 students and 1 teacher) for the Programme. Schools can encourage students who have not participated in any Mainland exchange programmes before to join the Programme, and all participation is on a voluntary basis. Priority will be given to applications with more nominations of student members of school chorus/orchestra, students taking Music as an elective subject at senior secondary level, and music teachers.
