香港中樂團 Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra
Huichang Yan, conductor
In one of only two U.S. engagements on the ensemble’s 2019 international tour, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, led by conductor Huichang Yan, closes out the Ozawa Hall schedule on Wednesday, August 21, with a program based on its repertoire of time honored Chinese music and contemporary works, many composed especially for the orchestra by some of the leading composers of our time. With its roots in the musical heritage of its homeland, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra is a cultural phenomenon—an ensemble of more than 80 players, performing on traditional Chinese instruments placed in a Western orchestral configuration.
