Join us to explore "Hong Kong Journeys" via the creative works of Hong Kong and international music talents in this concert curated by Hong Kong-born, Grammy Award®-nominated composer Angel Lam, and performed by a stellar group including harmonica world champion Gordon Lee and violinist Patrick Yim from Hong Kong, virtuoso gu zheng player Yang Yi, award-winning instrumentalists and an all-Asian cast of Broadway singers.

The program presents a collection of vignettes and meditations inspired by the people of Hong Kong. It features excerpts from Angel Lam's theatrical work, Lost Shanghai, inspired by her grandfather. It is a musical love story about ambition, espionage, betrayal, and redemption set in tumultuous 1940s China. The concert's second half features Hong Kong-inspired chamber music and explores the city's landscape on a cinematic and sonic musical journey. This program gives a glimpse of how Hong Kong started from modest beginnings to become the world's metropolis today.
