Harp Kaleidoscope 2 | Dan Yu with Friends and Students


A biennial harp concert by international renowned harpist Yu Dan, together with her friends and students.

“Harp Kaleidoscope” concert series aim to break the stereotype image of the harp. Audience can appreciate the rich sound, colors and expressive capabilities of the harp, just like a colorful kaleidoscope. From the clear crystal tune water in French Impressionist master Ravel’s “Jeux d‘eau ” to Othello’s singing the soft and sorrow “Willow Song” to Piazzolla’s passionate tango dance music, the audience will be led to explore the charming voice of the harp. The images from the colored glass in the kaleidoscope are never the same, bringing surprises and expectations, just like the repertoires.

Kaleidoscope concert series explores the brilliance of the harp together with many of Hong Kong’s renown musicians and Dan Yu’s students. These include flautist Megan Sterling, mezzo-soprano Zhang Yinjing and the King’s Harmonica Quintet, and other harpists: Melody Leung, Sunshine Lo, Lauyee Yeung, and Ann Huang.

Dan Yu is the first Chinese harpist who won the US International Harp Competition. She has performed around the world and is committed to raise Hong Kong’s status in the international harp world. She was the co-chair of the 2017 Hong Kong World Harp Congress and is currently the Chairlady of the Hong Kong International Harp Competition Organizing Committee and the Music Director of the Hong Kong Harp Chamber. In addition to focusing on harp education, Dan Yu actively performs frequently to promote the harp.

Audiences will witnese a group of Hong Kong’s young rising stars who have won many awards in various international harp competitions, starting from the age of 10.
