Karey Ho
A reflection on the perseverance behind great music

Updates: Cellist Trey Lee, scheduled to perform on 12 and 13 Nov at the Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Stories concerts in Tai Kwun, will be replaced by Jia Nan and Karey Ho, respectively. Programs and other artists remain unchanged.

Patience and perseverance have been vital in giving people throughout history the fortitude to overcome adversity.

Trey Lee brings together an outstanding group of musicians for this Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Stories series of concerts in the historic surroundings of Tai Kwun, the former Victoria Prison. The theme of the series is “Perseverance”, and features music by a number of great composers who each battled hardship during their lives––Arensky and his addictions to alcohol; Messiaen, who was interned in a prison camp in the Second World War; Schubert and Schumann, who grappled with mental and physical illnesses; and Dohnányi, who went to great lengths to save Jewish musicians during the Holocaust.

Alongside these musical stories from the past will be the premiere of Musicus’ Call for Scores winner Eason Chan’s new composition, which charts the history of Tai Kwun’s prison chapel in various incarnations. The piece showcases the historical setting of Tai Kwun, bringing the former prison to life and serves as a fitting metaphor for Hong Kong’s spirit of perseverance.

Join us at Tai Kwun and immerse yourself in some unforgettable musical stories of the past and present.
