"The concert has broken the boundary of time by bringing together the ancient and the modern, the boundary of place by combining Chinese and foreign pieces of work on stage, and adopting the latest 5G technology to broadcast the event for viewing simultaneously around the world," said Chan Wai-kai, chairman of the Council of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra.

Professor Yan Huichang — artistic director and principal conductor for life of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra — led the orchestra at the concert held on the evening of Oct 14, in collaboration with renowned virtousi from all over the globe.
