66 Leighton Road

  • Composer Jeff Leung
  • Violin, Viola, Cello

66 Leighton Road is the headquarters of Po Leung Kuk, a charity organization in Hong Kong and the inspiration for this piece. It is based mainly on the conditions in Hong Kong during the 19th century, where women and children were illegally trafficked and abused. Thus, Po Leung Kuk was established with the goal of protecting and educating these victims, which are represented as two constant elements throughout the work. In the end, these elements help to highlight the contrast between the darkness of society’s ills and the charity of Po Leung Kuk.
