Messages from the Co-chairs

Yip Wing-sie:

“After the big success of our 1st Hong Kong International Conducting Competition in 2018, it gives us tremendous encouragement to organise the next edition. We are very happy to continue our support for young conductors of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds to pursue a conducting career, and we look forward to finally welcoming them to Hong Kong in 2023.”

Christoph Poppen:

“It is with the greatest pleasure that I welcome all young conductors to the 2nd Hong Kong International Conducting Competition! The world has changed since we organised the Competition for the first time, but what has not changed is the need of brilliant young conductors. Having the chance to meet fellow conductors and interact with a professional orchestra and the prestigious Jury members are all important experiences for budding conductors! So welcome to Hong Kong!”
