HKICF has become a highly anticipated choral event in Hong Kong since it was founded in 2018. Over 10,000 students and teachers from more than 250 choirs have participated in the past three editions.

Entering into its fifth year in 2022, HKICF has matured into the scale of an international choir festival with multiple choral experts from around the world participating as speakers and adjudicators, locally commissioned theme song premiering during the festival, and thousands of choristers and music educators gathering to collaborate and learn from one another.
