Music has the magical power to transcend the material world and connect us to divine beauty. When enjoyed as a part of everyday life, music has a profound effect on up-bringing, on the quality of life and even on social harmony. Yet such values of arts are often under-recognised. By making quality music performances and education available to a wider public, the Festival wishes to give Hong Kong an artistic glamour on top of her boasted economical success.
