About us

Hong Kong City Philharmonia is a registered society and a non-profit making orchestra founded by a group of talented musicians in Hong Kong.  We produce orchestral music ranging from the classical to the modern era, by international as well as local composers.  Apart from striving for musical excellence, we also use music as a mean to promote a culture of appreciation and inclusion in society.

Our Music Director, also our founder, Kent Lee, is an active conductor and music educator in Hong Kong.  He is the conductor for Hong Kong Wind Symphony, the Cecilian Singers, the English Choir of The Hong Kong Catholic Cathedral, and the Diocesan Choir of the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong.

Our members are composed of highly skilled musicians from both professional and amateur backgrounds.  One characteristic of our philharmonia is the mentorship system, where more experienced members actively mentor the younger ones, who, in return, has the opportunity to become a musical mentor for others in the future.

香港城市愛樂管弦樂團是一個非牟利的音樂組織,由一群志同道合、賦有才華的本地音樂家所創立。我們演奏的音樂由古典至當代,包括國際及本地作曲家的作品。我們致力追求卓越,同時熱愛社會,希望能以音樂去傳揚互相欣賞及和諧共融的精神。
我們的創辦人及音樂總監李健斌先生是香港一名活躍的指揮家及音樂教育工作者,他同時擔任香港都會管樂團、The Cecilian Singers、香港天主教主教座堂英文聖詠團及天主教香港教區聖樂團指揮。
我們的成員來自專業和業餘背景,皆具有極高演奏水準。樂團其中一個特色是推行樂團導師計劃,由資深的音樂家帶領着新晉的樂手,讓他們有機會不斷提升自我之餘,將來也有機會成為社會上更優秀的音樂導師,為香港的音樂教育貢獻多一分力。
