In this performance, Ponte London Orchestra conducted by Stephen Lam introduces the UK audience to various heartfully selected Hong Kong movie themes from the ’80s to the present time.
No matter if you are familiar with Hong Kong or a newcomer to the city, this concert hopes to provide with an extraordinary experience of Hong Kong’s pop culture, enabling to enjoy beautiful melodies from the city’s pop stars including Leslie Cheung, Anita Mui, Eason Chan, Sammi Cheng and Jer Lau.
