Event Description

In recent years, many Hong Kongers have made Sutton their home, and we are excited to present a special Sutton Historians that looks at the traditional music and culture of Hong Kong. Lok Ting Wong (Music Director of Brew Ensemble) and Alyson Chan (Sutton Music Trust) will lead a talk and demonstration that explores Hong Kong's cultural history.

Notes from the speakers:

The term "culture" has a variety of meanings. In general, local culture refers to a community that shares a common language, habits, lifestyle, food, architecture, art and more within a specific geographical area. Local culture may difference from the mainstream culture in some ways. Let's talk about Hong Kong's local culture through the
lens of Chinese music.

「文化」有各種各樣的定義,地方文化廣義上是指一個群體在指定地域內,傳承著共同
的文字、語言、風俗、習慣、飲食、建築、藝術等,部份或與主流文化有差異。我們從
中樂角度出發,看香港的地方文化。
