Po Leung Kuk Ngan Po Ling College Named Champions at HANDBELL FESTIVAL 2011
2011/05/31

Success never comes easy. As finalists of Handchimes Junior and Handbell Senior groups in the Secondary Section, we knew that the key to becoming the champions was to excel in playing our handchimes and handbells with accuracy and skill. This year especially it was quite challenging to outperform other well-rehearsed teams.

We managed to dazzle with our forte this time in “Grazioso”, our chosen piece in the handchimes junior section, making sure every voice was beautifully phrased and articulated while instilling dynamics in our performance. Other contestants were well-prepared and it was hard to tell which team would make it to the top. The standard in the Handbell Senior Section was even higher. We combined drum beats in our chosen piece - “Good Vibrations” and perfected our playing with good team coordination which captivated the audience making them tap their feet in unison with our rhythm.

“The champions are Po Leung Kuk Ngan Po Ling College!” was what we had worked for and so when we heard this we were thrilled. We were not only awarded the championship in the Junior Handchimes Section but also the championship in the Senior Handbell section. Another handchimes team of our school was awarded the second runner-up in the Junior Handchimes Section on 12th May, 2011. Our winning teams were named as the “Best Handchimes Team” and the “Best Handbell Team” in May 2011.  

Our “never-give-up spirit” paid off after months of vigorous practice and hard work. We are thankful for the support extended by our school and Po Leung Kuk, which helped us train 60 students till date to perform frequently with our five octaves handchimes and handbells. Due to the excellent performance, in July 2010 our Senior Handbell Team was invited to perform at the Shanghai Expo and in November in the anniversary celebration of Open University at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
