December’s Freespace Happening offers two days of exciting jazz and classical music performances.
Along with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra’s brass ensemble, we have a lineup of great acts coming together for special crossover performances. Singer-songwriter Karmen Cheung will be on stage with a String Quartet performing arrangements by contemporary classical composer Alain Chiu; Jan Curious, lead singer of Chochukmo and international touring guitarist Teriver Cheung will join hands for the first time to create a brand new sound inspired by indie rock and jazz; jazz quintet Mo-Men-T will perform with Swiss saxophonist Christoph Grab; and pianist KaJeng Wong, the musical prodigy whose life was documented in the film “KJ: Music and Life”, will create unique sounds with 2 local musicians.
Continuing the crossover theme, we also have exciting ‘poetry meets music’ jam sessions with local poets and musicians presenting a selection of Chinese poems collected through an online open call.
Parents whose children are longing to have a pet can let them try out their pet care skills at the Pet Owner Challenge organised by ohmykids and Hong Kong Dog Rescue, or bring them along to their talk on how to get along with dogs. Young visitors will also enjoy our regular ohmykids Market designed by children, with stalls offering fantastic hand-made gifts and all kinds of fun games and activities.
For a spontaneous theatre experience, come along to FM Theatre Power’s interactive shows on the North Lawn and be prepared to be part of the performance. Alternatively, shop for original Christmas gifts at the Hoikokdaytan 2046 handicraft market, or learn to make your own at DIY workshops organised by Youth Outreach. And don't forget, you can also join the WE Dance showcases and workshops, as well as our Tree Tours, where you can learn about the trees and plants in the Nursery Park.
So, bring your friends and pets and join us at Freespace Happening for a winter weekend of music, literature, markets and special family events!
