Beginning from 1996, the Orchestra’s concerts are mainly organized by the Hong Kong government, and were well received by the general public and the music profession. Apart from organizing concerts, the Orchestra participates actively in social services and performs for voluntary groups, including schools, social centres and elderly centres.
