 Hong Kong International Conducting Competition for Chinese Music

香港国际中乐指挥大赛决赛音乐会
The first ever Hong Kong International Conducting Competition for Chinese Music, organised by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra - Contestants Shortlisted

 

The conductor is the soul of a concert, and plays a pivotal part in elucidating the artistry of the music as well as the musicians. A would-be conductor must learn not only the academic aspects of music, but also the skills and techniques of working with a professional orchestra and to be sensitive to what is happening onstage as well as in the auditorium. All this comes from hard work and experience accumulated over time.

The Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra is holding the first ever Hong Kong International Conducting Competition for Chinese Music in 2011. The Competition aims at  identifying conducting talent, promoting the development of Chinese orchestral music, and helping modern Chinese music culture to prosper and grow.
