In the first two concerts of this year's Swire Classic Insights series, Professor Matthew Evans, Dean of Science at HKU, will reveal the alarming situation concerning global warming and our planet’s fragile state. Supporting him will be two programmes of climate-influenced music, evoking the sun, the ice shelf, deserts, polar regions and the creatures whose very existence is threatened by climate change.

Thank you for supporting the HK Phil! All tickets of “GLOBAL WARMING I” concert have been distributed.





Please switch off you mobile phone and any other beeping device before the concert. Except with permission from the management, record, filming and photography are not allowed. If the music contains more than one movement, kindly reserve your applause until the end of the entire work.
