Arts Social! ── Innovations in Audience Engagement
Some people find it difficult to appreciate classical music. Some even hated it, thinking it is just a status symbol. How could classical musicians and organisations break those barriers, and bridge their music to the people? What is the future of classical music?
 
HKAAA is grateful to have Dr. Adler, Professor and Music and History at DePauw University, coming all the way from the USA to be the host of our first Arts Social! event.
 
Dr. Adler’s professional background and experience encompasses music performance, scholarship, teaching, and administrative positions at some of the most esteemed music institutions in the USA, including New World Symphony and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

“Arts Administrator 101” Series ╴Community Arts Engagement in Design Thinking
Presented by: Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association
Co-organizer: Hong Kong Design Centre
 
Design Thinking is a process of creative problem solving, with an emphasis to focus on the people they are creating for. Design thinking has been increasingly embraced by the world of business, social creative industry and education over the last decades. If the model is adaptable into different business, can we use it to design our community arts programme?
 
HKAAA is happy to have Ms. Sam Lam, Director of Business Development and Projects from Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), to kick off our 2019/20 “Arts Administrators 101 Series”. Sam will lead the workshop and go through the design thinking process with the participants, together exploring the possibilities of community arts.
 
Sam has over 18 years of experience in public relations, media, branding and curating and managing arts and cultural projects. Since joining HKDC in 2014, Sam mainly focus working on the flagship programmes of HKDC, including #ddHK, city and community programmes of Business of Design Week (BODW).

Composed and arranged by Leon Ko, adapted with lyrics written by Chris Shum, the Academy’s directors Roy Szeto and Chan Suk-yi, together with the student cast and creative team are going to surprise the audience in theatre in late November!

Mary Chin may be good looking, with a nice figure and a high-paid job, and yet she is unhappy. Unable to understand why, she blames it on her long-term boyfriend Andy, who still has not proposed to her. Mary is fortunate enough to have three besties – Mimi, Martha and Jan – who all share similar outlooks on love and life. However, the appearance of the mysterious “blue blood-prince” Chang Cho-yam, will set these women on a collision course…

Eternal Wings - Hong Kong Cultural Centre 30th Anniversary Concert
The Hong Kong Cultural Centre was officially opened in November 1989. Its inaugural performance by the HKCO was considered a historic, landmark event. For thirty years, the venue has been the Orchestra's second home, and the two have worked closely together to foster diversified developments in arts and culture. To commemorate the momentous occasion, the HKCO will take you back thirty years ago to where it all started as we revisit that memorable performance.
 
The young pianist Chen Sa, hailed as one of the leading figures of the "Chinese Piano Age”, will be performing the Yellow River Piano Concerto. Second Symphony, commissioned for the opening of the Cultural Centre, will be performed by celebrated concert organist, Shen Yuan. Premier drummer in Chinese percussion music, Yim Hok Man, and Bearer of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Chiuchow (Chaozhou) Music of Shantou, Guangdong and erxian virtuoso, Wang Peiyu will perform the Chiu Chow Gongs and Drums piece, Netting Fish.
