A new classical music concert series in Sai Kung, featuring Hong Kong’s top performers.
Sai Kung Sound Collective
Sasco (西貢聲集) is a diverse collective of Hong Kong-based musicians — instrumentalists, composers, vocalists, improvisers, and educators — dedicated to presenting, performing and promoting classical music, while demystifying the art form by bringing audiences and musicians closer to each other. We are both a flexible ensemble, and an artistic community centered around Sai Kung town, producing concerts that feature world-class performers, local and international living composers, musical theater, and improvisation. In conjunction with our events, we offer workshops, masterclasses, and talks. After each concert, we like to take our audience out for dinner and drinks, inviting them to get to know the people both on and behind the stage and to become part of our community.
