The name Victoria is all-pervasive in Hong Kong and can be found on everything from a park to a mountaintop to the city’s harbor. While these associations might conjure up political and economic legacies, we can also get a bit closer to another side of Victoria, the individual, who was said to have enjoyed music greatly during her lifetime. Three Musicus Heritage concerts will take place on the grounds of the Old Victoria Barracks, at the Former Explosives Magazine site which is now home to Asia Society Hong Kong Center. Reverberating through the halls of these historic monuments will be music by composers admired by Victoria and her husband Albert, presented alongside Chinese music that would have been heard in Hong Kong and nearby provinces during her reign. Concert programme also includes the world premiere of new work by young composer Kenny Lam inspired by Asia Society Hong Kong Center.
