Welcome to Qatar School Choir of the Year

Motto   Uniting children through singing 
Vision To enhance children's well-being through music, while bringing joy to the community
Mission To enable children to experience and enjoy each other's musical heritage, to give them a platform that encourages a touch of competitive spirit, with the desire to perform and excel, to contribute to Qatar's vision for 2030 by enriching the education in performing arts

Originally called "Qatar Primary School Choir of the Year", the competition was brought to life in 2017 by a team of music teachers, parent volunteers, and choir enthusiasts from Doha College, to add new breadth to the music education in the country.

Competition Ambassador Dana Al Fardan is a Qatari composer of international prominence and an alumna of Doha College. She composed the competition anthem "Wings of the Falcon," which was the set piece of the inaugural QSCoY edition and has since been recorded with the Qatar Junior Choir and with members of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.

QSCoY is fortunate to have had world-renowned choral expert Greg Beardsell as its head adjudicator for each edition since its inauguration. Every year, apart from leading a panel of illustrious personalities from Qatar's elite musical sphere, Greg led electrifying workshops for students and teachers, and succeeded in firing up the love of singing in thousands of children.

Watch the highlights of the 2020 QSCoY heats, attended by nearly 2,000 participants and hosted by the spectacular venue of Qatar National Convention Centre.
