A maritime-themed music program featuring Baroque pieces and a new commission

For more than 130 years, the Old Aberdeen Police Station, situated on a hill overlooking the fishing village in the south-west of Hong Kong Island, has witnessed wars, land reclamation and repeated migrations as it weathered the ebbing and flowing tides of colonial and modern Hong Kong.

Enjoy a concert in one of Hong Kong's oldest police station buildings

Musicus Society presents this heritage concert program in the Old Police Station’s historic red-brick building (now occupied by The Warehouse Teenage Club). With a nod to local fishing traditions, Artistic Director and cellist Trey Lee has selected works by Baroque composers Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi inspired by Western maritime myths and fishermen’s tales, and will perform the pieces as part of a string quartet.

The program will also premiere a new commission composed by Kenneth Li, winner of Call for Scores 2023. It is inspired by the rejuvenation of the Old Aberdeen Police Station, as it has evolved in step with the neighbouring fishing community of Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau. The new contemporary piece combines the sounds of Chinese and Western string instruments.

Come and experience this enchanting concert where the music sails across the aged wooden floorboards and verandas of the historic surroundings.
