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 audience, 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.

Ticket holders (except for patrons who purchased tickets from Klook, POPTICKET and ticketflap# ) to the cancelled concerts, please submit your preferred ticket arrangement on or before 30 June 2020.

A mysterious dark stranger apparently commissioned Mozart to write a Requiem, which ended up marking the composer’s own death. The largely forgotten massacre of Nanking moved Bright Sheng to write his Pipa Concerto as a requiem for the 300,000 Chinese civilians slaughtered. But to celebrate the enduring power of faith, Arvo Pärt’s setting of an ancient Latin hymn marks the 1150th anniversary of the founding of the abbey in Essen, Germany.
Change of Programme *
“Swire Denim Series: Requiem: Mozart vs Salieri” is retitled to “Swire Denim Series: When Bright Sheng meets Mozart”. Requiem by Salieri will be changed to Arvo PÄRT’s "Salve Regina" for Chorus and Orchestra, and Bright SHENG’s Nanking! Nanking! for Pipa and Orchestra, other programme details remain unchanged.
