We have some great performances and events coming up now that the Chinese New Year break is over. Most of them are free; you just need to come to the HKAPA Box Office thirty minutes before the show to pick up tickets.
Here’s what’s on for the rest of February offered by the School of Music:
This coming Saturday 15th at 3pm in the Recital Hall is the Academy Junior Music Concert, featuring the talented youngsters who are in training to become the future music professionals and gifted amateurs that are so important to the cultural life of Hong Kong. Programme details to follow.
Specially for Anglophiles! On Monday 17th, guest artists Christopher Moyse on trumpet and Jacqueline Leung on piano join members of the Academy Orchestra for an all-British programme. The concert is at 8pm in the Recital Hall and I’ll let you know the details in the next post.
The following day, Tuesday 18th, there is a String Concert at 6.30pm in the Recital Hall. These early starts are great for those of you who can get away from work in time to attend them. You can unwind from your day listening to some gorgeous classical music and still have time for a good dinner and a reasonable bedtime. Perfect!
There are three more early evening concerts in February that will take place in the Recital Hall at 6.30pm: Woodwind on the 20th; another String concert on the 25th and Piano on the 27th.
Then there are a couple of the special concerts at which the Academy excels: on Wednesday 26th at 8pm in the Concert Hall, there is a Chinese Wind & Percussion Concert featuring 19 Masters, Undergraduate and Diploma students in a full programme that I’ll give more details about in a later post.
Finally, there’s an Early Music concert at the very end of the month, Friday 28th, at 7.30pm. Details to follow but we can be fairly certain there’ll be some lovely harpsichord…
Hope you can make it to at least one of these shows. Guaranteed enjoyment for music lovers!
