Lei Yusheng, the founder of the School of Music, said that the chorus' initial mission is to provide basic music education for primary and secondary schools. It was the revolutionary songs that motivated people to resist foreign enemies and defend the country during the war years. Therefore, it is a must to promote the traditional culture of song. Mr. Lei expressed support for the Chinese original chorus works and showed his appreciation for the younger composers as well as his hope and determination for the cultural inheritance and innovation of the younger generation.
