Open Rehearsal: Marin Alsop, São Paulo Symphony Orchestra and local student orchestras

Event Details

As part of the 47th Hong Kong Arts Festival PLUS programme, world-renowned conductor Marin Alsop, together with Latin America’s leading São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, will share the stage with two local award-winning student orchestras from Diocesan Boys' School and Diocesan Girls’ School, to support the development of young musical talent. 

The open rehearsal will consist of two parts: in the first, Alsop will conduct and share with each student orchestra her rich experiences in the world of music. In the second, Alsop – a protégée of the late American composer Leonard Bernstein – will be joined by musicians from the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra to practice and perform Bernstein’s Candide Overture alongside the student orchestras onstage. 

The open rehearsal will not only provide audiences the opportunity to enjoy the raw charisma of orchestral music, but also pass the flame of knowledge from Bernstein to Alsop, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra and, finally, to Hong Kong’s bright young musicians.
