The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra proudly presents the first chamber music series in Tai Kwun, the hottest historic heritage and cultural landmark. Six evening chamber concerts will be held between February and June 2019. The programme is specially curated by the Artistic Planning Director Fung Lam and the HK Philharmonic performers in order to reveal a wide range of musical spectrum and showcase the possibilities of chamber music. We hope to bring a new perspective to the audience, a series of authentic chamber music concerts.
