The Hong Kong String Orchestra, along with Hong Kong violinist Jue Yao and conductor Lio Kuokman, will give a concert marking the 250th birthday of German composer Beethoven. The concert, featuring musical pieces by the great composer, will be broadcast online in January.
The Global Symphony Orchestra of Hong Kong will also perform a work, titled The Legend of Confucius, conducted by the company’s music director Mak Ka Lok.
