Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra Sydney Concert 2023

When

Thursday 21 December 2023 from 7:30pm to 9pm

Cost

Starting from: $43.2

The Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra will return to Australia presenting the "Image China" concert – "From Dream of the Red Chamber to the Terracotta Warriors" at the Melbourne Town Hall, Sydney Town Hall and Brisbane City Hall in mid-December 2023 after a 40-year hiatus.

Led by Mr. Yan Huichang, current Artistic Director, and Lifetime Conductor of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, 80 outstanding members of the orchestra will feature the "Dream of the Red Chamber Suite," adapted from the iconic 1987 TV series soundtrack, offering a profound taste of this classic tale. Additionally, Peng Xiuwen's "Fantasia, Terracotta Warriors" will convey the weighty historical significance through classical instruments.

A special highlight of this performance is the Eco-Huqin developed by Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, which is more eco-friendly in material, and achieves breakthroughs in the depth, texture, and thickness of traditional string instruments, providing you with a unique and enriching musical experience.

Established in 1977, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra stands as a highly influential force on the international stage. The musicians of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra will deliver a concert of the highest caliber, brimming with infectious energy. We look forward to seeing you there!
