Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive Explores the new heritage site at The Pokfulam Farm

10.07.2021
With the support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Musicus Society presents a concert under the Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive program at The Pokfulam Farm on 30 October 2021.

In the newly revitalized Pokfulam Farm, which used to be the residence of the Old Dairy Farm’s Manager, what’s better than enjoying an afternoon of classical music inspired by the Nature?

The love of Nature has inspired generations of artists like Beethoven and Bartók, as evidenced by their works featuring highly descriptive titles. Renowned cellist Trey Lee and five brilliant young Hong Kong musicians will bring to life Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, the Pastoral, arranged for string sextet, as well as selections from Bartók’s Duos for Two Violins, including the Harvest Song, Mosquito Dance, Hay Song and more. To match the five movements and titles of Beethoven’s work, paintings specially created for this concert by artist and collector Cecilia Cheung will also be presented.

About the Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive Programme
Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in 2019, Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive is a 3-year program to promote music through heritage. A 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 talents, the program also creates an enriched and meaningful concert experience for the public at large.

About The Pokfulam Farm
The Pokfulam Farm Revitalization Project is under the Batch IV Revitalization Scheme of the Development Bureau. It was co-designed and co-operated by Caritas Hong Kong and Pokfulam Village Cultural Landscape Conservation Group.

The Pokfulam Farm was formerly the Old Dairy Farm Senior Staff Quarters which was constructed in 1887 and currently rated as Grade 1 historic building. The Farm was restored to its historical appearance in 1919. It will display the artefacts, oral history records and related historical documents which facilitates the public to know more about the history and operation of the Old Dairy Farm and its connection with the community. In addition, a new simple structure has been constructed to provide space for dairy and bakery workshops which can echo with the history of the Old Dairy Farm.

The building serves as the entrance to Pokfulam, from which the public would learn about the history of the place. With the adoption of a community perspective, the Farm would provide docent tours, workshops and different experiential learning opportunities in order to demonstrate the history of the Old Dairy Farm and link it up with the surrounding settlement culture, promoting lifestyle diversity and appreciation of the nature. It also mobilises social capital to promote and support sustainable development of the entire community.
