Supported by Secondary Schools to Cheer Hong Kongers on
The University of Hong Kong (HKU) launched the “HKU Sync with U ” initiative to bring positive energy to Hong Kongers from all walks of life. Current HKU students and alumni collaborated with their alma mater to cheer on Hong Kongers through music they produce.
“HKU Sync with U ” received great support from numerous Hong Kong secondary schools’ orchestra including Diocesan Boys’ School (DBS), Diocesan Girls’ School (DGS), La Salle College (LSC), S.K.H. Tsang Shiu Tim Secondary School (SKHTST) and St. Paul’s Co-educational College (SPCC) etc. The moving music produced from the homes of the musicians aims to bring positive energy to DSE candidates, front-line healthcare workers, cleaners and all Hong Kongers.
The “HKU Sync with U” Music Relay started with SPCC. Professor Gabriel Leung, Dean of LKS HKU Faculty of Medicine joined the SPCC Orchestra and London Mozart Players Orchestra, together with a total of nearly 100 musicians, to play “Radetzky-Marsch” to pay tribute to front-line healthcare workers.
In addition, SPCC’s School principals, council members, alumni, teachers and students, where some of them are current HKU students and alumni, formed a “virtual choir” and sang the song “While I breathe I hope” written by famous composer Mr Mark Hayes to cheer Hong Kongers on.
Subsequent participating secondary schools include DBS, DGS, LSC and SKHTST. They will pay tribute to front-line healthcare workers, cleaners and other anti-epidemic heroes with their moving music. They will also cheer for DSE candidates and all Hong Kongers.
Taking part in the “HKU Sync with U” Music Relay initiative, Thomas Wong, an alumnus of LSC who is now an HKU MBBS student said, “Hong Kongers have been fighting against the pandemic since February. Through this music relay, we wish to bring positive vibes and the strength to carry on to Hong Kongers.”
