2018-19 “Performances@Lingnan” series
Wong Bing Lai Music and Performing Arts Unit kicked off the 2018-19 “Performances@Lingnan” series on 26 September on Lingnan campus. The series has been part of the University’s objective to enrich the music culture and performing arts events on campus. Lingnan was honoured to host the opening event presented by RTHK Chamber Soloists, which was recently formed to present a wide-ranging chamber music repertoire from classical selections to contemporary flavour. Over 350 participants enjoyed the virtuosic display of the four outstanding musicians – LE Noai-Nam (violin), Laurent PERRIN (cello), John SCHERTLE (clarinet) and Colleen LEE (piano).
Showcasing a very different style, another signature performance “Jazz under the Skylight” was put on an outdoor stage on 10 October at Skylight Plaza to an audience of approximately 150 students and guests. Together with an introduction of the background of every piece of music performed, Lingnan’s Musician-in-Residence Andrea MARCELLI teamed up with the most prominent jazz musicians in town, namely Ted LO (piano), Eugene PAO (guitar) and Scott DODD (bass), to perform jazz and blues music from different continents during the lunch hour.
