Founded in 1915 and established as one of the most prestigious schools in Hong Kong, St. Paul’s Co-educational College Primary School has long enjoyed a rich musical tradition. Following their acclaimed concert tours to Beijing, New York and Singapore in recent years, their talented students will be embarking on a performing tour to the United Kingdom, culminating in a Gala Concert to be held at St. John’s Smith Square in London on July 15, 2015.
In addition to dazzling audiences with masterpieces of chamber, choral and orchestral music, these young music makers will also bring with them a taste of the Chinese culture, and perform highlights from the famed Yellow River and Butterfly Lovers’ Concertos, as well as the world premiere of When the Eastern Moon Is Over the Western Sky – A Piano Fantasy on a Chinese Lullaby by the award-winning Hong Kong composer, Steve Ho.
The young musicians will be joined on stage by pianist Warren Lee, Steinway Artist, Hong Kong Representative of the Royal Academy of Music and Music Director of St. Paul’s Co-educational College. The musical dialogue among different generations will undoubtedly ignite an artistic spark and produce moments of joy on stage that are not to be missed!
