The Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra will give three educational concerts early next month.

The concerts, presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, will take place on December 3 and 4 (Friday and Saturday) at 8pm at the Theatre of the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre; and December 5 (Sunday) at 8pm at the Theatre of the Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre.

The orchestra's music director, conductor and the concert narrator, Dr Yip Wai-hong will perform with a number of young instrumental musicians. They will give educational and entertaining demonstrations during the concerts. Dr Yip will also conduct some live interviews with parents and share his teaching experience with the audience in Cantonese.

The programme includes Barhalanova's "Mazurka"; Bach's "Minuet", "Violin Concerto in A Minor, BWV 1041, 1st Movement" and "Violin Concerto in E, BWV 1042, 1st Movement", Kreisler's "Praeludium und Allegro"; Mozart's "Violin Concert No. 5 in A, K. 219, 1st Movement" and "Piano Concerto No. 5 in D, K. 175, 1st Movement"; Sarasate's "Zigeunerweisen (Gypsy Airs)"; Popper's "Gavotte"; and Squire's "Tarantella".

The Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra is a local orchestra aiming to promote music among the general public especially the younger generation. To achieve this goal, the orchestra has performed frequently in the Hong Kong City Hall, regional town halls and civic centres over the past 20 years. A number of internationally famous conductors and soloists have been invited to perform with it. By using the idioms of popular music and organising concert talks, the orchestra has successfully introduced serious music and Chinese orchestral music to the public, and, at the same time, brought about an awareness of the indigenous culture of the people.
