Concert of Cantonese music to revisit old Hong Kong
*********************************************

Performing well-known classical and contemporary Chinese music pieces in a unique way, the Hong Kong Arts Society will stage "Tunes of Hong Kong Yesteryears – a Concert of Cantonese Music", next month (November).

Featuring a selection of works by famous Hong Kong composer Lui Man-shing and arrangements by famous musicians Wong Ching-kuen, Loo Kar-chi and Cheung Wing-shau, the concert will be held at 8pm, Sunday, November 4, at the Theatre, Sheung Wan Civic Centre.

Formed by a group of local professional musicians from the former Hong Kong Arts Troupe, the Hong Kong Arts Society aims to promote music and arts activities, improve communication and exchanges within a social context, and enhance local culture and the arts indigenous to the southern part of Guangdong. The ensemble is famous for its repertoire of light music, performed with a lively, delicate and elegant appeal. It is also the society’s mission to introduce works written and arranged by local composers.

"Tunes of Hong Kong Yesteryears – a Concert of Cantonese Music" is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD).
