Awakening Hong Kong’s History with Music


Unique in its history among world cities, Hong Kong's cultural heritage makes for a singular and compelling story for locals and visitors alike. The city's dynamic counterpoint between the traditional and the ultra-modern provides ample inspiration as a backdrop upon which audiences can appreciate and reflect on Hong Kong's enduring legacy. And what better way to accomplish this than to transform the heritage venues into ad hoc concert stages with thematic programs and new works inspired by the history of the venues!

Since 2013, Musicus Heritage has taken world-class performers to various locales and settings in Hong Kong, thus putting the music in context with the historical and cultural significance of the surroundings. With support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, we embarked on an exciting new chapter in 2019 with "Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive" program. This program won the Star of Outstanding Award at the 2022 Global Awards for World Heritage Education Innovative Cases in an international sharing forum online. The forum was organized by the World Heritage Institute of Training and Research for the Asia and the Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO. 

In 2022, with renewed funding from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, a 3-year program "Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Stories" was launched, aiming to celebrate Hong Kong history with music. Year-long heritage activities include master classes, school visits, tailored-made performances, and heritage guided tours. In addition to serving as a platform for international artists to nurture local musicians and young talent, the program also creates an enriched and meaningful concert experience for the public at large. The new series also invites artists from other art forms to create new works, bringing in new perspectives on historical sites.
