An experimental chamber music experience blending physical theatre and two groundbreaking works by Beethoven and John Adams
In this unconventional performance, the musicians of Young Pro Platform present two groundbreaking works – Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony and Chamber Symphony by contemporary American composer John Adams – that both demand great virtuosity of the performers. Presented in collaboration with a team of young Hong Kong actors, the unique, immersive event combines musical performance with elements of physical theatre, movement and installation. Join us for a venture into the unknown!
The performance is conducted by Sharon Andrea Choa, with artistic direction from Sharon Andrea Choa and Ata Wong.
The Young Pro Platform comprises 19 graduates of the School of Music at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. It is one of the core schemes of The Orchestra Academy Hong Kong, a programme co-directed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
