The Hong Kong Young Chinese Orchestra (Wind and Percussion Sections)

Hong Kong Young Chinese Orchestra

The Hong Kong Young Chinese Orchestra was set up by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra with the purpose of inheriting the culture of Chinese music. Its members are young talented players from Hong Kong aged between 10 and 35. They are trained not only in musicianship and performing techniques but also in discipline and team spirit. The Orchestra is currently having 77 members, constituting a complete structure of a full-scale Chinese orchestra.


The members learn through stringent weekly practices, working closely with the other members and understanding the importance of playing music as part of an orchestra. They also have the opportunity to be trained by the conductors and seasoned instructors of the HKCO to improve their performing skills and musicianship, so as to establish a solid base in music. The Orchestra’s incumbent conductor is Rupert Woo Pak Tuen, winner of the Outstanding Young Conductor in Hong Kong Award of the Second International Conducting Competition for Chinese Music (2014).


Besides regular rehearsals, members of the Orchestra also participate in performances and exchanges both in Hong Kong and overseas to broaden their horizon, share the joy of music with others, and expand their performance experience. Local performances include the ‘Preservation and Perpetuation of the Classics’ concert in 2021 and 2022, the ‘Chinese Music Fun! Fun! Fun!’ gala and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Chinese Music 360 Community Performance organised by the HKCO. In 2019, the Orchestra performed in ‘Let's Fun@HKCC’ fun day commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, and the ‘Haw Par Jolly Music Day’. During 2018-19, the Orchestra was invited to participate in Hong Kong Children’s Choir 50th Anniversary ‘HKCC & Friends’ Concert. In 2018, the Orchestra performed at the Sha Tin Festival’s ‘Melodious Erhu Showcase’ and the Hong Kong International Youth Chinese Music Festival. Overseas performances include exchanges and tours in the Greater Bay Area in 2019, as well as ‘Macao International Youth Music Week’ in 2018, where the Orchestra visited Macao, Shenzhen and Panyu and exchanged their music experiences with the local students.
