HKPhil X Swire Denim Baroque Concert at 9pm tonight

Sit back and enjoy your weekend. The new Swire Denim Series is perfect for busy urbanites, or those who simply love the classics! Concert starts at 9pm. Slightly over one hour of great music. No interval. Engaging activities on and off stage. Simply let our music jolt your weekend into high gear.


From super-charged versions arranged for full symphonic orchestra, to the intimacy of his solo cello music, this concert explores the genius of J. S. Bach in ‘shuffle’ mode. Alongside his great classics will be intriguing music which Bach has inspired through the centuries, from The Beatles, Arvo Pärt, Tchaikovsky and Eighth Blackbird. PROGRAMME

    Wish I had known earlier, have to skype the UK at 8pm. Will it be possible to come along later and sit in the foyer and listen? In the UK many performances are recorded during the performance and people can sit in the foyer and watch or listen.

      Yes. Normally they have a tv in the waiting area at the cultural centre. It isnt a normal practice for people without tickets to sit in the foyer. But if that's what you wish to do, you could ask the staff at the cultural centre next time.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
