LCSD Announces ‘Tan Dun - Sound of Dunhuang’ Concert in July

As part of the festivities commemorating Hong Kong's 25th anniversary, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will be hosting the "Tan Dun - Sound of Dunhuang" concert in July.

The concert will feature fire and birds as the main themes of Dunhuang arts and culture. Expect some performances combined with Chinese and Western music elements along with some interactive technology.

With the aim of building a stronger community, the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) sponsored this exclusive event by donating HK$630 million to the Hong Kong government. Some of the renowned artists and musical groups that will be performing at the concert include the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and members of The Orchestra Academy Hong Kong, led by maestro Tan Dan.

In addition to this, there will be guest musicians who will perform the songs written by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky as well as the works of Tan.

The "Tan Dun - Sound of Dunhuang" concert is slated for July 16 and 17 at 8 PM at the Concert Hall of Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Ticket prices range from HK$300 to HK$600 via www.urbtix.hk.
