Lingnan Arts Biennale: Music for an Afternoon Tea​

with Hong Kong Metropolitan Pop Orchestra, Satur Tiamson, Master Tang and friends, on 15 November 2021


The Lingnan Arts Biennale encompasses a series of events organized by the Faculty of Arts, aiming at enriching the cultural well-being of the Lingnan community and the general public. They invited local artists to showcase their work, as well as to introduce various art forms.


Professor Ip and students from our Ensemble, along with Satur Tiamson and the Hong Kong Metropolitan Pop Orchestra, were invited to host a concert of light music selected from a variety of styles and cultural origins at Kin Sun Square (Skylight Plaza).


Fusion of dance music, jazz and Cantonese traditional music is a significant characteristic of old Hong Kong music, especially in the 1950-60s, with the influx of musicians from diverse genres of Shanghai jazz and western pop music. In Hong Kong, gathering for tea has a unique symbolic meaning for dialogue. This concert is not only a time for enjoying music, but also an intercultural and intergenerational exchange.
