Music Director and Conductor of Asian Chamber Orchestra

As our Music director and conductor, Mr Chan leads our group of talented players to demonstrate our passion for music. Mr Chan started with French horn at the age of eleven and later graduated from the Music Department of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 1991. Soon after, he grew interest in conducting and studied with Yu Feng, the artistic director of the Central Opera House in Beijing. In 2008, he then joined Japanese conductor Fukumura Yoshikazu as an assistant conductor of the Vietnam Opera House Orchestra. Currently Mr Chan serves as a member of the Hong Kong Board of Directors of the Chinese Horn Association, Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Asian Chamber Orchestra and the Asian Music Association Symphony Orchestra.
