HK Chamber Orchestra: Classics, Live at the Big Top
Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra: Classics – In support of the Doddie Weir Foundation
A 60-90-minute orchestral performance showcases excerpts from some of the world’s best-known pieces of classical music played live by the HK Chamber Orchestra. The HKCO has a rich legacy in Hong Kong of over half a century.
Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra was established in 1976 by a group of international musicians living in Hong Kong, nowadays players consist of professional musicians who graduated from local and overseas music academies and universities, professional music teachers, and experienced musicians.
We are delighted to partner with the HKCO for this special afternoon in a truly iconic and intimate setting.
All net profits of this show will be donated to the Doddie Weir Foundation.
The Doddie Weir Foundation
Doddie Weir OBE was one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997, and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons.
A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie then faced his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie was driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.
In November 2017, Doddie and his trustees launched the registered charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Our vision is simple: A World Free of MND. The number “5” is a special number for the Foundation. It features in the Foundation’s name and is a reference to Doddie’s playing number for his clubs, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons, and the jersey he wore when he earned his 61 caps for Scotland.
The Foundation is committed to helping improve the lives of those affected by Motor Neuron Disease. We help to fund grants, giving considerable sums to our friends at MND Association and MND Scotland to administer to individuals and families living with MND.
For a limited time, the Big Top will transform into a live music venue like no other. A specially curated line-up of local and international acts will take over the circus ring. From the finest DJ talent to an Abba-tribute sing-a-long to an orchestra, there is a show to suit all musical interests.
Limited seats are available for these matinee and evening shows. This is a live music extravaganza in a unique intimate setting that will have you singing and dancing the entire time.
