Two of the city's best-loved stars, Sandy Lam Yik-lin and Anthony Lun Wing-leung, will be featured in the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra's annual Canto-pop concerts.

It won't be their first time on stage together, as the duo have been musical partners for years. At every concert Sandy holds, Anthony sits in the producer's seat. But this time they'll share the limelight.

'I will finally get to work with her at eye level and look right into her eyes instead of always looking up from my producer's seat,' Anthony laughs.

The pair have rearranged most of their songs, adding in some classical elements. Anthony told CitySeen that some funky medleys would be injected, along with a few other surprises for the fans, so wear your dancing shoes even though it is a classical music concert. With more than 20 songs on the playlist and local jazz icon Eugene Pao in the lineup, fans should be in for a treat.

The concerts run from tomorrow to Monday at the Coliseum and tickets are priced from $120 to $400. Call 23557234 for details.
