JOCKEY CLUB OPERA HONG KONG
YOUNG ARTIST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Sponsored by The Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Jockey Club Opera Hong Kong Young Artist Development Programme (the Programme) is the first-ever intensive opera training project complemented with a series of outreach activities in Hong Kong. Inaugurated on 1 July 2015, this three-year programme aims at bridging the gap between school and performance stage. By providing tailor-made and intensive training, we aim to nurture our young artists to attain international level of artistry. They have received regular voice lessons from renowned bass-baritone Mr. Gong Dongjian, who is also the Programme Director, as well as coaching from overseas coaches. They also have the opportunities to perform in Opera Hong Kong’s productions. In addition, the Programme strives for a breakthrough in popularizing operatic art in general public through its education and outreach programmes. They include Mini Opera Concert and Masterclass Tours, where the young artists can bring first-hand opera experiences to secondary schools with interactive presentations and masterclasses.

The ten selected vocalists for the Programme 2016-17 are:
1) Lam Wing Wing Colette, Soprano
2) Lau Cheuk Yan Alison, Soprano
3) Li Yang, Soprano
