Classical pianist Ricker Choi brings you a piano concert featuring composers who use music to express pride and nationalism towards their birth places.  Examples of works to be performed in the concert include Chopin’s mazurka and polonaise;  Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody, and more.  Pianist-composer Ricker Choi will also perform his Hong Kong Rhapsody (香港狂想曲) to express his emotions towards Hong Kong’s fight for freedom.  Protest art created by Ricker will also be exhibited at the lobby of the venue. Net proceeds will be donated to (細葉榕人道支援基金)


由Ricker Choi創作的鋼琴變奏三部曲《香港狂想曲》及香港抗爭畫作分別被中共標籤為「獨歌」和「獨畫」,其中黨媒《文匯報》更點名指控他觸犯「國安法」,令Ricker以後不能回到他的出生地香港。


此外,活動收益扣除成本後,餘額將會全數撥捐至「細葉榕人道支援基金」 (細葉榕人道支援基金),協助香港在囚手足。    

* Financial statement and donation proof will be made public after the concert
