Special notice


The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Music Director Jaap van Zweden, our Board of Governors as well as the administration put the health and well-being of our audiences, players and staff at the forefront of our priorities. Like most cultural organisations, we have made major adjustments to our regular activities in order to accommodate these exceptional circumstances. 

We continue to liaise closely with our performance partners and venues to ensure appropriate arrangements for the remainder of our 2019/20 season. Please visit our website and Facebook page for relevant announcements. 

We very much look forward to seeing you in our concert hall in the near future, sharing our exceptional music-making and the energy that you, our audience, brings to each performance. In the meantime, stay home and stay well.

Mabel Lee

Soon after graduating from The University of Hong Kong, Mabel qualified as a solicitor and joined one of the leading law firms in Hong Kong.  In the 80’s she emigrated to Vancouver, Canada, where she studied and qualified as a Canadian solicitor and barrister. On her return to Hong Kong, she resumed her practice as a property and commercial lawyer and continued until her retirement in 1999.  She was also a member of the partnership board of her firm and served as a member of the Property Committee of the Hong Kong Law Society.  In order to share her experience with future members of the profession, she started teaching at the HKU Faculty of Law and is at present a part-time tutor for the PCLL course. She is also a Notary Public.

Since her retirement she has been actively engaged in voluntary work. She has served as a board member of the Hong Kong Liver Foundation and the HKU-Pasteur Research Centre. She also served on the HKU Convocation Standing Committee and HKU Court.  She is currently managing an Elderly Fund and a Children’s Fund both under the Simon K.Y. Lee Foundation. As Chairman of the Hong Kong University Graduates Association Education Foundation, she helps with the running of two DSS schools, HKUGA College and HKUGA Primary School. She learns a lot and finds great satisfaction out of all this volunteering work.
