Classical music isn’t really everyone’s cup of tea and it certainly isn’t that popular among the youth of today, especially when they can be out chasing Pokemon.
However, Premiere Performances is trying to change that by hosting a public performance by the Curtis Institute of Music and Grammy winner Jason Vieaux, on 7 October at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Concert Hall.
The concert is part of Premiere Performances extensive classical musical outreach programme which attracts international acts and rising stars to play for Hong Kong audiences.
The visiting groups also give concerts, seminars and workshops in schools.
The Curtis Institute will perform at HKUST on 8 October, and then to underprivileged children in Tin Shui Wai and Nam Cheong on 9 October before concluding their visit with a concert and talk at Asia Society on 10 October.
Venue: Concert Hall, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts
Date: Friday 7 October
Time: 8:00 pm
