JOCKEY CLUB STREET MUSIC SERIES
Street music, distinct with its spontaneity, engages and empowers people with breaths of freedom, injecting aspirations to audiences who blended-in on spot where performances are brought to us unconventionally, interactively and creatively. The Street Music Series co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Kung Music Workshop have been sharing the passion for music since 2009, filled with not only enthusiastic local audiences but also visitors around the world. The event has also been listed as ‘not-to-be-missed’ by Lonely Planet.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust sponsored HK$13 m this year to support the Jockey Club Street Music Series for the next three years. The programme will carry on to bring audiences the liberating spirit by a new lineup of 30 concerts in the community every year, together with music coaching workshops and In-school demonstrations. All the showcases are designed to ignite passion and realise potential in every individual, meanwhile bringing together different groups of people the extraordinary experiences – from the Hong Kong Arts Centre to communities in other districts. Workshops dedicating to local youth, encouraging them to mingle, to learn and have fun with professional musicians, friends and audiences from all walks of life, empowering them to discover their own inner strengths by immersing in the street music experience. Let the spirit rock on!
