Hong Kong Chiuchow Music Ensemble
The Hong Kong Chiuchow Music Ensemble is a non-professional organization performing Chaozhou music and Chinese opera in Hong Kong. Formed in the 1970’s, the Ensemble was a regular performing group in the outdoor entertainment programmes of the former Hong Kong Urban Council. Its members are local enthusiasts in Chaozhou music, most of whom with 20 to 30 years of performing experience. These veterans are now helping to groom younger musicians either as coaches or music teachers. Apart from performing as accompanying ensemble for Chaozhou opera troupes in Hong Kong, it has also toured Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. The musicians are in close contact with famous virtuosi in Chaozhou and Shantou, practising with them and actively promoting cultural exchange in a bid to keep the art form thriving.
