Founded in 1962, the Hong Kong YWCA Chinese Orchestra is an interest group under the Hong Kong YWCA and one of the Chinese orchestras with the longest history in Hong Kong. The orchestra has organised performances regularly to introduce Chinese folk music of different styles to people and provide training and performing opportunities to local young musicians. Many of its members are winners of various music competitions, and several have become music professionals. In recent years, the orchestra has collaborated with an array of music virtuosi all over the world as well as local music elite. All the performances have received great acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
"Chinese Music Kaleidoscope" by Hong Kong YWCA Chinese Orchestra is one of the programmes of the "Cheers!" Series.
