Two evenings of classics written and conducted by the Maestro himself

The name ‘Kuan Nai-chung’ represents a prolific composer and a versatile conductor rolled in one, and many of his works are etched in the memory of generations of Hong Kong people. The Maestro is returning to Hong Kong to conduct the HKCO in two evenings of richly diverse music: the first opens with Memories of Hong Kong and the second, Scenes of Yunnan. He will be joined on the concert stage by dizi virtuoso Zhang Weiliang, guqin virtuoso Qiao Shan, viola virtuoso Chris Choi and sheng virtuoso Yang Sin-yu. Together, they will cook up two wonderful feasts of music!
