During that "window period" two months ago when there were fewer COVID-19 cases the HKBU Symphony Orchestra, led by Johnny M. Poon, gave an online concert from the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall. Programme included one of the most romantic works in music history, the third movement from Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2 and Mozart’s delightful Piano Concerto No. 17, with Colleen Lee as soloist. With numerous public performances cancelled, this becomes one of the two Youth in Harmony programmes that we bring you this year. The other concert was recorded at the same venue in January before the pandemic hit Hong Kong. On that occasion, world-renowned tenor/composer/conductor/educator Bob Chilcott directed the Hong Kong Youth Choir and a mass choir consisting of voices from secondary schools and the general public in performance of his own works.
Tune in to Youth in Harmony on 7 and 14 September at 8pm for two 2020 concert recordings of youthful music-making in Hong Kong.
