The name Victoria is all-pervasive in Hong Kong and can be found on everything from a park to a mountaintop to the city’s harbour. While these associations might conjure up political and economic legacies, we can also get a bit closer to another side of Victoria, the individual, who was said to have enjoyed music greatly during her lifetime. Under Musicus Heritage, concerts took place in venues on the grounds of the Old Victoria Barracks with music by composers admired by Victoria and her husband Albert, presented alongside Chinese music that would have been heard in Hong Kong and nearby provinces during her reign. With such sounds reverberating through the halls of these historic monuments, perhaps audience could imagine the same settings during the time of Victoria and Albert to gain a better appreciation of our common history.

Kenny Lam’s Reanimate” made its world première within the Old Victoria Barracks that inspired it.
