HONG KONG PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) is recognized as Asia’s foremost classical orchestra. Its history stretches back to 1895 and the Orchestra has been fully professional since 1974. The orchestra presents over 150 concerts within a 44-week season and attracts more than 200,000 music lovers annually.

Jaap van Zweden, one of today’s most sought-after conductors, has been the orchestra’s music director since the 2012/13 concert season. Van Zweden was recently announced as the next music director of the New York Philharmonic. This appointment will not affect his tenure with the HK Phil; his commitment to the HK Phil extends at least to the summer of 2019. Yu Long has been appointed for an initial three-year term in the 2015/16 season as principal guest conductor.

Under van Zweden, the HK Phil is undertaking a variety of initiatives including a four-year project to perform and record the complete Ring of the Nibelung (Richard Wagner). The orchestra also undertook a highly successful five-country, seven-city tour of Europe in the 2014/15 season, with concerts in London, Vienna, Zurich, Eindhoven, Birminghan, Berlin and Amsterdam.

Thanks to a significant subsidy from the Hong Kong government and a long-term funding from Principal Patron Swire, the Hong Kong Jockey Club and other supporters, the HK Phil now boasts a full-time annual schedule of classical music concerts, pops concerts, an extensive education program, and collaborations for staged opera with Opera Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Arts Festival. The Swire Group has been the Principal Patron of the HK Phil since 2006.
