Event Details

Pipe Organ Walk and Organ Recital-Hong Kong Organ History and Culture

In Hong Kong’s early days as a treaty port, western missionaries came to the territory to spread their faith.  Under their influence, organ pipes sprouted in churches across Hong Kong. With its complex and precise structure, and a variety of tone colours from its many flutes, reeds and tubes, the organ has come to be known as “the king of instruments”.

The Organ Tour explores the histories behind Hong Kong’s organs and organists through talks and demonstartion, and a pipe organ recital performed by sought after concert organist Dr Anne Lam at the Chapel of Sheng Kung Hui Tan Shiu Kin Secondary School. The music will draw inspiration from Hong Kong organists and composers, showcasing the development of local organ music.

Whether you are an organist or a music lover, this is a rare and rich organ experience not to be missed!
