Young musicians to perform "Now, 30" for Hong Kong Cultural Centre's 30th anniversary

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department will present a concert entitled "Now, 30" among other programmes to mark the 30th anniversary of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC).

     Curated by promising pianist Wong Ka-jeng, who will also perform, "Now, 30" will feature local music talents showcasing their creativity incubated in local music circles over the past decades. The concert will be staged at 8pm on October 20 (Sunday) at the Concert Hall of the HKCC. The programme will include a classical piece and movie scores, as well as original pieces by local young composers.

     Besides Wong, other performers will include Wong Wai-yin (piano), Duo Ping & Ting (Chau Lok-ping and Chau Lok-ting, piano), Re.MIX Percussion DUO (Raymond Vong and Emily Cheng), Timothy Sun (saxophone), CY Leo (harmonica) and Chan Chun (double bass).

     Born in Hong Kong in 1990, Wong Ka-jeng started playing the piano at the age of 7. He rose to public attention due to the unexpected popularity of his Golden Horse Award-winning documentary "KJ: Music and Life" in 2009. His performance at the 2014 Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition, where he was a semi-finalist, received critical acclaim. Wong was also the winner of the 2014 Young Concert Artists Asian Auditions in Seoul.

     Since 2013, Wong and his team have organised numerous concerts through Music Lab, a collaborative platform that values and promotes local artists who strive for artistic excellence. Wong and his team curated the annual Music Lab Festival by producing high-quality concerts from 2016 to 2018.
