La Gioconda: Dance of the Hours (excerpt)

Alasdair always loves travelling to join his friends in the Hong Kong Sinfonietta but this time things do not go quite to plan and he ends up having the most Incredible Journey! Instead of flying direct, he ends up having a riotous ride on boats, broomsticks, cars, carpets, roads, rails, spaceships, shoes, hooves and a yellow submarine!

Fortunately he has help from great composers including Mozart, Grieg, Saint-Saëns and Johann Strauss, and the music from films such as Aladdin, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Moana and Star Wars —  but will he get here on time?

Don’t miss this exciting adventure in music and motion!

The APPRECIATE concerts are, mainly, classical concerts featuring guest artists and conductors of world renown.  Apart from performing orchestral masterpieces, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly commissions new works and introduces to audiences works that are rarely heard in Hong Kong.

Music is good for everyone! The LEARN series takes audiences aged 0 to 88 into the world of classical music through specially designed concert series including Good Music for Babies, Good Music for Kids, Short-cut to Classical Music, Know Your Classical Music and HKS McDull Music Project.

In the light-hearted RELAX concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta shares with audiences great music ranging from orchestral favourites to music from movies and musicals.

The ENCOUNTER series offers unique opportunities for audiences to get close to the music and the performers through chamber music concerts, talks, often at unconventional venues or time. These include Good Music This Lunch, Good Music @ The Fringe, Beyond Good Music @ The Fringe, HKS ArtisTree Residency and UpClose Encounters.

Often referred to as “one of the world’s great small orchestras”, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has been invited to go on many TOURS in Europe, Asia, South and North Americas, sharing good music with audiences in over 30 cities.  In 2017/2018, the orchestra will make its début in Germany and perform at festivals in France, Portugal, as well as the Beethoven Easter Festival in Poland.

WHAT ELSE?  Apart from classical concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly appears in staged productions by Hong Kong Ballet, Opera Hong Kong and visiting arts groups such as The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Bolshoi Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This season, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will also host the 1st International Conducting Competition.

“Maestra Yip and the HKS brought liveliness and precision in their performance.”
