Thank you all for your support.
Join the HK Phil and conductor Perry So for our annual grand outdoor show - Swire Symphony Under The Stars - at the New Central Harbourfront. Looking at our beautiful harbour, we celebrate great music inspired by the waters faraway, from Scotland’s Hebrides to the grand Yangtze. Then we turn to the fabulous skyline of our ‘Wonderful Town’ with a jazz-filled tribute to the city lights. Hong Kong’s own Fiona Hui sings show tunes by Bernstein. Bring your toy instruments to perform with the orchestra in the Toy Symphony, and be prepared for a few surprises along the way!
**Bring your own meal boxes and drinks.
**Bring your musical toys to join the largest music-making party!
**Bring your own blankets to enjoy this magical evening!
