THE HONG KONG CHRISTIAN CHINESE ORCHESTRA

NATURE AND COMPOSITION

     The Hong Kong Christian Chinese Orchestra  (HKCCO) is a not-for-profit para-church organization aiming at praising God and serving the Christian Church through the use of Chinese instruments. At present, HKCCO has about 40 members and they include a senior lecturer of the H.K. Academy for Performing Arts and a professor of a theological seminary, professional musicians and amateur Chinese music lovers. The Orchestra has two honorary advisors who are musicians of very high caliber: Ethnomusicologist Rev Dr. Ito Loh, former President of Tainan Theological Seminary, and Prof. Daniel Law, Dean of Arts Faculty at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.  The Chaplain of HKCCO is Rev. Dr. Lee Chee Kong who was the General Secretary of the Hong Kong Bible Society. 

HISTORY

        In 1996, Mr Francis Fong, the former Music Director of the Orchestra, was approached by Madam Mable Wu, Assistant Professor for Music and Liturgy of the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Hong Kong, to assist in the 1997 Assembly of the Lutheran World Federation, by gathering together a group of Chinese instrumentalists to provide music offering for the event. The 13-player Chinese instrument ensemble providing music offering during the Assembly, opened a new page in the history of Hong Kong Chinese Christian Church.  After the Assembly, the group shared a strong vision that they should continue to stay together as a group to serve the Lord.  HKCCO was then born on 13th July1997. By the grace of the Lord, the Orchestra has the support of the Chinese Rhenish Church (Wanchai) that kindly provides free use of their venue for rehearsals. 

ACTIVITIES

       Since its inception, the HKCCO has been busy serving the Lord.  Locally, we have performed for churches and Christian organisations as well as accompanying various choirs.  Overseas, we have left our footprints in Manila, Sydney ,Perth and various cities in Germany.
