More than 100 alumni from the School of Music will join together to present three concerts to mark the finale of the year-long 30th Anniversary celebrations.
Among the alumni are students from different generations including some who graduated in the 1980s and 1990s. For some, it has been a long time since they last saw each other and made music together on the same stage.
A vibrant and varied programme of music is being planned for the three concerts. The programme for the two Western music concerts includes a wide repertoire featuring strings orchestra, guitar ensemble, brass band, wind ensemble, vocal group, percussion group, and piano for six hands. Besides other pieces, each group will perform a short opening piece composed by composition graduates called One Minute on Stage.
The Chinese music concert will feature a number of local Chinese music groups formed by our alumni, some of which have been very active in the music scene including Four Gig Heads, Percussion Group, Zheng Music, Windpipe Chinese Music Ensemble and Chinese Music Virtuosi, as well as two of the principals from the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra.
The Alumni Homecoming Concerts will take place on 20-22 December. Admission is free, with tickets being available at the Academy Box office an hour before the concerts start.
There will be different programme in the western music concert on 20 and 21 Dec.
