About the artists
The Orchestra was founded in 1977 and is the only professional, full-sized Chinese orchestra with 85 musicians in Hong Kong. Acclaimed as “a cultural ambassador of Hong Kong”, Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra has been invited to perform at various famous venues in the world and at international festivals. It has been heard by audiences in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and Arctic Circle. The Orchestra is deeply rooted in the Chinese cultural heritage. Its performance format and repertoire include both traditional Chinese music and contemporary full-scale works. It also explores new frontiers in music through commissioning new works of various types and styles. Over the years, it has commissioned over 2,100 original compositions and arrangements. The Orchestra is in four sections: bowed-strings, plucked-strings, wind and percussion, its instruments incorporating both the traditional and the improved, new versions.
