Memorial Talk Series Commemorating Wong Yuet-sang, Maestro of Cantonese Music Culture
FRI 20 NOV 2020 | 7:30 PM

As an extention to the 2019 commemorative talk series on Wong Yuet-sang – held to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth – the Xiqu Centre and the CUHK Centre for Chinese Music Studies present a new series of talks on the work of a man widely regarded as Hong Kong’s maestro of Cantonese music culture.

During his lifetime, Wong created over 200 songs and instrumental pieces for Cantonese opera. As an instructor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a great proponent of Cantonese opera, Wong also promoted the academic study of the art form and taught a number of students, many of whom are now artists in their own rights.
