Promoting Music through Cross-cultural Collaboration

The all-new Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive Programme presents community concerts and free events at Tai Kwun

08.28.2019
With the support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Musicus Society is launching an all-new “Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive Programme” at Tai Kwun on 14-15 September 2019. The new initiative aims at telling stories of heritage through music and providing local artists with opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration. The Programme also creates an enriched and meaningful concert experience for the public at large.

Conserved and revitalised by The Hong Kong Jockey Club, Tai Kwun – Centre for Heritage and Arts has breathed new life into the Central Police Station compound as a new landmark for heritage, culture and arts. As one of the most significant revitalisation projects in Hong Kong, Tai Kwun is the most fitting venue where heritage stories are interpreted through music for all people to enjoy. With the title “Turmoil and Redemption”, the community concerts feature chamber gems by Bartók and Shostakovich, whose reputation were eventually redeemed despite the oppression and hardships suffered at times of wars.

Renowned cellist Trey Lee, celebrated violinist Dong-Suk Kang, Berlin Philharmonic violinist Dorian Xhoxhi and violist Sebastian Krunnies and local talents Chau Lok-ping, Chau Lok-ting, Jonathan Leung, Yeung Ching-ho and Winnie Yiu join hands in two community concerts at JC Cube on 14-15 September. The opening concert on 14 September will also present for the first time a commissioned new work inspired by Tai Kwun by Tiffany Leung, a winner of Call for Scores of the Musicus Society.

In the addition to the above concert, the inaugural celebration also includes free events for the public, including two masterclasses on 14 September, as well as a concert performance supplemented with a guided tour on 15 September.
