Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s current Music Director Yip Wing-sie will step down in April 2020 after leading the orchestra for 18 years. From May 2020, she will become Music Director Emeritus of the orchestra.

Hong Kong Sinfonietta is therefore seeking internationally – a new Music Director to lead the orchestra into its next stage of development.

Hong Kong Sinfonietta is a mid-sized symphony orchestra (56 musicians) in its 20th professional year with a full season.

It is an orchestra :

  • with a strong local root and international aspirations;
  • which boasts artistic excellence;
  • which enjoys collaborative artistic pursuits;

The new Music Director should be able to lead the orchestra in upholding and furthering its reputation while further developing its artistry.

He/She would :

  • preferably be a conductor with some prior experience with one or more professional symphony orchestra/ensemble;
  • be able to travel to and stay in Hong Kong on a regular basis if not already resident in Hong Kong.
