Magic wielded by two conductors in one concert

Two young conductors from Hong Kong, both winners of the Hong Kong International Conducting Competition for Chinese Music in the first and second editions – Kwok Kin-ming and Rupert Woo Pak Tuen, make this concert unique with their choice of music and interpretations. Woo’s segment will feature several classics in Chinese music, including a dizi solo by Chan Chi Yuk, while Kwok’s will feature Colleen Lee on the piano and the Music Office Children’s Choir in a chorus. And we must not forget - they will have the HKCO’s solid support throughout the refreshing numbers!
