Press Conference of the World Cultures Festival 2015 - A Decade of Exquisite Arts

An overview of the Festival by Ms Fionn Yeung, Chief Manager (Audience Building, Festivals & Entertainment) and Ms Betty Au, Senior Manager (Festivals) of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

Founded by Dr Yip Wai-hong, Hong Kong Professional Winds led an imaginative journey across the continents through music.

Local breakdancers Bboy Drunk, Bboy ET and Bgirl Ling demonstrated breakdance with agile and energetic movement, and they will soon battle with Jinjo Crew from Korea.

Consisting of female members only, local arts group O.Daiko demonstrated a rhythmic and thunderous drum beat.

The press representatives and guests attended the press conference and were paying attention to the promotional trailer of this year’s WCF programmes.

As a prelude to the Hong Kong Episodes, saxophone sensation Timothy Sun and some top chamber players from the Hong Kong Contemporary Music Group performed local young composer Fung Lam’s new work.

Ready? Cheers! — Let’s take a group photo!
