The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Orchestra
Formed under the auspices of the University’s Culture Promotion Committee since 2013, it aims to assemble students, staff and alumni across generations to ignite their passion for music. Our debut performance was at the Emmanuel United Reformed Church, University of Cambridge, UK in the Cambridge Exchange Concert in 2013.
The Orchestra unites members of the PolyU family and enriches the cultural ambience of campus through musical training and orchestral performances.
We cultivate your musicianship and broaden your musical horizons through diversified music programmes, collaborating with renowned artists and overseas exchange programmes.
