  Music Office

The Music Office promotes general music education in the community, especially for young people to develop an interest in and appreciation of music, and fosters music sharing between local youths and their counterparts from all over the world. Services provided in 2004 included an instrumental music training scheme for 4,700 trainees, 18 youth orchestras, bands and choirs for 1,430 members, short-term music interest courses for some 2,000 participants, and 424 music activities for around 200,000 people.

Other events organised included a music camp, youth music interflows and music exchange programmes with young musicians from the Mainland and overseas. For the first time, the 2004 Music Camp invited some 40 young musicians from Guangdong Province and Macau to participate and share their musical experience with the local campers. On an international level, the Hong Kong Youth Strings, one of the ensembles trained by the Music Office, was invited to Kagoshima in October for performances and music exchanges with young musicians in Japan.
