HKBDWO

Hong Kong Band Directors Wind Orchestra (HKBDWO) consists of local professional musicians, experienced band directors, music graduated, music major, and overseas musicians from Taiwan and Japan.  The band was gathered and presented by Hong Kong Band Directors Association.  Our missions are to promote advance band music, commission new works, and most importantly provide a platform for local composers to present their new works.  Therefore HKBDWO was gathered in last September for a concert named Band Composers Showcase, which was a great success and was highly acclaimed.  At which concert, we presented six pieces; including three world premier pieces all written by local composers: Simon Yau Yuen-Hing, Wyman Wat, Austin Yip Ho-Kwen, Dr. Lo Hau-Man, Law Kin-Pong, and Eileen Mok.  In addition, we were proud to have invited renowned composer, Satoshi Yagisawa, to be our special guest conductor along with clarinet soloist, Koji Miura, and saxophone soloist, Wong Tak-Chiu to perform Satoshi’s works in the second half of the concert.
