Time Out says

Here’s a music ticket for your imagination to travel beyond the city

Flying to other parts of the world may be impossible this year. But, there are other ways to satisfy your travel cravings. We’ve given you a handful of food tickets, so here’s something a little different: a musical treat with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil), who is hosting A Musical Journey to America concert this Saturday (November 21). Intended to be both reflective and heartening, the show will feature uplifting music by two timeless American composers – Samuel Barber, with his Adagio for Strings, and Aaron Copland, with Appalachian Spring Suite. The orchestra will be conducted by Lio Kuokman – who has recently delivered a promising performance to a full house during HK Phil’s season-opening and the Beethoven Festival. 

In addition, the concert will be the world premiere of Social Distancing, a piece written by James Bonzos. Inspired by the pandemic, this opening act is one of the highlights to look out for. To spread some much-needed cheer this season, the Jazz Concerto by the Austrian-British composer Joseph Horovitz will also be performed, with Warren Lee from Hong Kong on the piano, alongside HK Phil principals George Lomdaridze on the double bass, and Aziz D. Barnard Luce on the drums.
