Who We Are
The Hong Kong University Students' Union Philharmonic Orchestra (UPO, HKUSU) was founded in 1999 by a group of devoted students of the University of Hong Kong. As a member of the Cultural Association of the Hong Kong University Students' Union, the Orchestra is non-profit-making and administered by students.
The Orchestra aims at promoting orchestral playing and developing students' interest in western music. At the same time, the Orchestra strives to develop an atmosphere of music appreciation within the University and throughout the community-at-large.
What We Do
The Annual Performance in November and the Spring Concert in April have evolved into yearly traditions for the Orchestra. We also perform in events organised by the Centre of Development and Resources for Students,the Development and Alumni Affairs Office and other faculties, departments and societies within the University. Furthermore, the Orchestra has been invited by organisations such as the Agricultural and Fisheries Department, the Leo's Club and the Hong Kong Children and Youth Service to perform in various community functions.
