Hong Kong Young Musicians’ Wind Orchestra
Hong Kong Young Musicians’ Wind Orchestra (HKYMWO), a non-profit making organization registered under the
Societies Ordinance, was set up in December 2000 with the prime objective of
nurturing the talents of young musicians through progressive training. The
HKYMWO was founded by Mr. Wing-tsan Lam, Mr. Amos
Lee and Mr. Joseph Yu. Their dedicated drive and sheer enthusiasm towards
inspiring the next generation with the love for music are well aware of by
many students and parents. To further underscore their commitment, these
three teachers made their way to start off the dream of setting up HKYMWO.
They provide free tuition to participating members to strive for their
musical excellence, and thereby enhance the public’s interest in the playing
of wind instruments. It’s the Orchestra’s intention to expose Hong Kong’s
brilliant young musicians to various artistic experiences, which include
opportunities for exchange and touring with the other top wind band players and
renowned professional musicians around the world.
As an active wind orchestra, the HKYMWO has performed with various famous musicians including local pianist Dr. Yan-yan Chan, flautist Ms. Ivy Chuang, trumpeter Mr. Joseph Ngan, conductor and trumpeter Mr. Danilo Delfin, trumpeter Kevin Ngai, percussionist Mr. Lap-tak Choy, conductor Mr. Carl Choi, conductor and English horn player Mr. Victor Tam, Soprano Ms. Fiona Fong, Clarinetist Mr. Anthony Wong, trombonist Mr. Kelvin Chan, Oboist Ms. Tinny Cheung and the French Horn players of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Mr. Supreeti Ansvananda, Mr. Hing-cheung Shum, Ms. Masumi Higashide and Mr. Benny Kwan.
