Exclusive Sponsor
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust




For one night only, Hong Kong born and talented conductor Perry So takes up the mantle of Lorin Maazel to nurture and encourage Hong Kong’s young musicians. With a donation of more than HK$6.3 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the “Jockey Club Keys to Music Education Programme”, Share The Stage with the HK Phil project will continue in the spirit of Maestro Maazel. Selected young local instrumentalists will play along with the HK Phil on stage The Mars & Jupiter from The Planets, under the baton of Perry So, in a public working session. Come and attend the concert to hear what they achieve together on 4 November 2014. Free Admission!

The Planets is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst. The work calls for large orchestral forces and makes formidable demands upon them. "Mars, the bringer of war" is full of violent and intense rhythms, while "Jupiter, the bringer of jollity" has thrilling and optimistic soul, culminating in a great noble melody, later known as the hymn tune “I Vow to Thee, My Country”.
