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.

Gui Li

Gui Li has been studying the violin since she was five with her grandfather as her very first violin teacher. She made enormous improvements after a major training at Wuhan Conservatory of Music (Middle School Section) and won the Second Prize at the National Violin Competition in China and the Best Performance of a Chinese Composition for solo violin. She then gained a Bachelor’s Degree from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (APA) with a full scholarship and became a Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Orchestral Fellow of the Hong Kong Philharmonic in 2006.

 

Gui Li is an active musician both inside and outside school. Besides taking part in different school concerts and solo recitals, she has also joined different local orchestras and participated in various masterclasses by world-renowned violinists and teachers, such as Joseph Silverstein, Charles Castleman, Lin Cho-liang and Kurt Sassmannshaus. Also, she was the recipient of a number of scholarships from the APA, including the Chan Chung-On Violin Performance Merit Award, The Academy Non-Local Scholarship, Duchess of Kent International Scholarship and The Dorset Foundation Weinrebe and Hosier Scholarship. Moreover, she led a quartet to tour Thailand, as representatives of the APA.
