Canto-pop singer Anthony Wong Yiu-ming will team up with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra to give an electrifying performance fusing electronica and classical music.

The concert will be led by Australian conductor Simon Kenway, one of the music directors for Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. Local musicians Leung Kei-cheuk (aka Gaybird) and Chiu Tsang-hei will produce and direct.

Wong will pay tribute to legendary Canto-pop composer Joseph Koo Ka-fai by singing new versions of his songs. Other songs include movie theme tracks, such as those from the James Bond films.

The concert will be staged from Thursday to Sunday at 8.15pm at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Tickets cost $400, $200 and $100 from Urbtix on 2734 9009.


A collection of black-and-white photographs by Australian artists Alice Bache and Kate McDonald is on display until March 15 at the Fringe Club's fotogalerie.

Both artists are long-term residents of Hong Kong. They offer their expatriate view of Hong Kong's vibrant city life, diverse landscapes and people using images of the bustling markets, old buildings and ferries.

Admission is free. For more information call 2521 7251.
