Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra to Perform ‘A Magical Nighttime Symphony’ at Hong Kong Disneyland
The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (The HK Phil) will perform “A Magical Nighttime Symphony” on December 3 and 4, 2021, at Hong Kong Disneyland. The HK Phil will be joined onstage by Mickey and friends as they perform classic Disney and Christmas songs. Read the announcement below.
As the sun sets and dusk arrives, the Castle of Magical Dreams will shine with dazzling lights together with festive Christmas adornments at the park. Conductor Chiu Tsang Hei will take the stage with musicians from the HK Phil. A flick of the baton, and the HK Phil will soar to life for the 45-minute symphony in true festive spirit.
Expect Sorcerer Mickey in his special costume, followed by two Disney royals, Queen Anna and Queen Elsa, joining the stage. Mickey’s best friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Goofy, will also appear in their brand-new holiday costumes to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
Popular Disney songs will include “A Whole New World” and “Frozen Heart,” alongside Christmas classics like “Joy to the World” and “Jingle Bells,” for a magical Christmas live musical performance featuring the guest pianist Ceejay Javier, music director, entertainment & costuming, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. As the enchanting music rings through the night sky, the castle’s magnificent water fountains will dance in step to the music. All the while, snowflakes will gently cascade to the ground, perfecting the festive spirit of the season in a night of beautiful harmony.
“We are very excited working with the HK Phil, the flagship orchestra of our city; it brings all the magical elements together here in Hong Kong Disneyland: the spectacular night view of the Castle; high-quality orchestral live performances, and beloved Disney songs and stories. It’s our pleasure to bring the magic back to the community with a very special white Disney Christmas experience.” Michael Moriarty, managing director, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, said.
Mr. Benedikt Fohr, Chief Executive of the HK Phil, added: “Music connects people, and the HK Phil is thrilled to bring live music outside of the concert hall and to create these magical performances with the Hong Kong Disneyland for the Hong Kong community.”
To further share the happiness and love with people in need in the community, the resort will also give 150 tickets to the Ebenezer School & Home for the Visually Impaired and the Hong Kong Society for the Blind, who will participate in the “Community’s Got Talent” performances during the Christmas period.
