School Concert 2021Rejoice Together
The School Concert “Rejoice Together” was held successfully on 10 December in the College Theatre at the Lee Shiu Building of HKU SPACE Community College. An audience of almost 240 people attended.
Professor Edward K.Y. Chen, Chairman of the Board of Directors of HKU SPACE; Professor William Lee, Director; Mr Sunny Yeung, Director of the Board of Directors of HKU SPACE; Professor William Leung, Chairman of the HKU SPACE Foundation Committee; Professor L.S. Chan, College Principal; Dr John Cribbin, Deputy Director; Dr C.L. Chan, Chief Information Officer; HKU SPACE teachers, students and alumni all came to support the talented performers from the School.
The concert opened with Wesley Wong, one of our gifted music teachers who led the Ausgelassen Harmonica Quartet with a Spanish Fantasy, and a medley of Beatles and Christmas favourites. This was followed by the glorious singing voice of Alex Chen – a teacher in our vocal training programme.
Next, we enjoyed the sublime guitar skills of our talented guitar teacher Ron Ng and the acclaimed guitarist Eugene Pao who brought us three brisk and energetic pieces, followed by a string quartet featuring Felix Ungar, another of our talented teachers, Gary Ngan, Biffa Kwok, and Winca Chan, who were joined later by our staff member TK Tan playing a Mozart Piano Concerto.
Our Board Member, Sunny Yeung and Chan Pik-sum then entertained us on the Japanese Shakuhachi and Erhu. And this was followed by the trio of talented musicians who make up CMus who warmed our hearts with some energetic and exciting Chinese tunes. The concert concluded with the classic Cantopop song "獅子山下” (Below the Lion Rock).
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the musicians, teachers and alumni for their extraordinary efforts and captivating performances. Our sincere thanks also goes to the event sponsor, Mr William Au Weng-hei, SBS, JP, and all other patrons, for their generous sponsorship. All the proceeds will go to the HKU SPACE Bursary Fund to assist full-time students with financial needs.
