The Hong Kong Schools English Band Showcase (HKSEBS) will provide students from Hong Kong schools a fun and engaging way to improve their English and public presentation skills, develop teamwork and social skills, and provide experiential learning opportunities related to their love of contemporary popular music and the excitement of live performance.
Groups of 2 to 10 students will perform at least 2 English songs for up to 10 minutes. Audio recordings of the performances will be submitted by email along with the application form. After reviewing the recordings, about 10 bands will be invited to perform at the showcase.
At the showcase, a panel of judges will give each band a rating based on several mandatory criteria including vocal performance, musical performance, group performance, and overall performance. Each band will also be assessed on optional criteria such as dance choreography, band name, logo or design, costumes, and audience participation.
