With this term’s training topic - “Symphonic Senses”,  we have experienced various symphonic vocabularies, and  the concept of how a classical symphony is constructed with multiple movements, and how those movements are related each other. We have also experienced the techniques of how to control and balance these relationships of tonalities, tempi and moods in those of large scale formulated works such as concertos and symphonies.

These experience will be definitely positive and meaningful, especially for young people. Life is a collection of experience, these positive experience will always accompany them and enrich their life...

Young Virtuosos  2019

This is our 3rd concert of the Young Virtuosos series. 
Orchestra members will have the opportunity to choose their favourite pieces, and those pieces will be arranged for solo instrument and for orchestra by Dr Koo. In the concert, selected members will play their piece as a soloist accompanied by the orchestra.
This concert provides an unprecedented opportunity for young musicians to have their first attempt as a soloist accompanied by an orchestra in front of a live audience.  They will learn the procedure and etiquette involved in such a performance, and will bring to a young musician an unforgettable and empowering experience. This valuable and unique experience will elevate their performance qualities and their love and passion for music.
