Spring Concert 2017

The Spring Concert 2017 has ended on a high note on 13 Apr night. It was a pleasure to complete two challenging pieces under the guidance and leadership of our conductor, Prof. Gabriel Leung. And this concert would not have been successful without the remarkable devotion and effort from our fellow players! Last but not least, we'd like to thank everyone for supporting us. Your support motivates us to carry on and make improvement! We wish you have enjoyed the performance and hope to see you again in our Annual Performance in November!

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.
