Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra
Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra is a highly organized orchestra aiming at promoting music among the general public especially the young generation in Hong Kong. In order to achieve its goal, the Orchestra has performed frequently in the Hong Kong City Hall, regional town halls and civic centres a few hundred times over the past 34 years.

A number of internationally famous conductors and soloists have been invited to perform with it. By using the idioms of popular music and organizing 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.

 

Music Director: Dr. Yip Wai-hong
Dr. Yip Wai-hong is an eminent music educator. He served Hong Kong Baptist University as the Head of Music and Fine Arts Department for almost 30 years. He founded the Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Children’s Choir, Yip’s Children’s Choir and Hong Kong Children’s Symphony Orchestra with the aim to nourish young talents in Hong Kong.

Lio is a recent graduate from the Curtis Institute of Music with a double major in orchestral conducting under the instruction of Otto-Werner Mueller and harpsichord performance with Lionel Party. After graduating from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, under the tutorship of Gabriel Kwok, with first-class honours, he was awarded a fellowship to pursue a Master’s degree in piano performance with Robert McDonald at The Juilliard School of Music, where he also studied conducting with Virginia Allen and chamber music with Michael Tree and Joseph Kalichstein.
