Annual Performance 2017

The Annual Performance 2017 ended on a high note! We sincerely thank everyone for supporting us. It was such a pleasure to share the great music with you all under the guidance of our conductor, Prof. Gabriel Leung. And the concert would not have been successful without the remarkable devotion and effort from our fellow players and soloists! We wish you have enjoyed our concert and hope to see you again in our upcoming performances!

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.
