Musical Tour – Hullett House, 1881 Heritage

A unique musical tour as we celebrate the heritage of the Former Marine Police Headquarters – now known as Hullett House in 1881 Heritage. Docent took the audience through three of the building’s 19th century Victorian-style rooms where short performances by featured Festival artists were be hosted, taking you back to a time when classical music was enjoyed in an intimate setting. The concert also featured compositions inspired by the history of the walls that will surround the audience, and composed by the rising stars of the Hong Kong music scene (Willis Wong “Sampling Tea”; Roydon Tse “In Suspension”). The tour began from the Courtyard of Hullett House where an outdoor exhibition (presented by Credit Suisse) was also featured.
