On 1 December 2006, 20,000 audience members witnessed the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HKPO)’s Symphony under the Stars – the largest outdoor symphonic concert in this city – and all free tickets were given out in three days! This year, on Friday at 7pm on 30 November, HKPO will move to the Happy Valley Racecourse Recreation Ground for another magnificent musical evening under the magical night sky

Under the baton of Conductor Laureate David Atherton, the Hong Kong Philharmonic will play a range of easy-listening Western and Chinese classical hits, including excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet music, The Nutcracker, Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music (alledgely attracting an audience of 12,000 at its premiere and causing a three-hour traffic jam on the London bridge) and Hua Yan-jun’s Moon Reflection in the Er Quan. Chinese pianist Zuo Zhang will also share the stage with the HKPO in Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a romantic classic made timeless by the movie Somewhere in time. TV celebrity Patrick Dunn will again take to the stage to be master of ceremony for this special event.

Hey there,

Just curious, was this a paid shoot for you? If it wasn't, it should have been. Beautiful shots. Catching the cannons, the setting, the people, you really know what you're doing.

Best regards,
Michael
