Good morning. Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Live music is back! Very soon (with every finger crossed). At 10.10 the one and only Chris B joins us to invite you to the Wild Boar Music Festival, which is happening on Sunday March 14th at the Central water front. At 11.10 today it’s Sports and All with Danny Hicks. And, after 12 we’re off to the movies with critic James Marsh. For the second week in a row he’s actually been inside a cinema. Join us on Facebook live, on and off throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. Our first question on today's Morning Brew is; "did 2020 mark the beginning of the end for the music business?". If so, then the world has a lot to worry about, and we're about to see thousands of the absolute best ensembles and performers quite literally serving us coffee and fast food. A combination of Brexit and COVID-19 restrictions has made the future of this profession hang in the balance. At 10.10 conductor and composer Colin Touchin, who has just returned from a spell in Europe, will tell us what he thinks, and how he and colleagues spent last year just doing the best they can. After 11.30 RTL France’s Philippe Dova will be with us for his weekly taste of things French in Hong Kong, plus of course his usual “eclectic” handful of French hits. After 12 we’ll visit Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central for some active isolated...thawing out. Join Chris on Facebook live.
