The Music Director of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Yip Wing-sie, passes the baton at the end of the 2019/20 season. She has been leading the orchestra since 2002 developing it into a household name in Hong Kong which has been recognized internationally. Her 16 years of leadership have been marked by a remarkable outreach program winning more and more audiences for classical music in Hong Kong, almost 50 new works which have been commissioned for the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and several international tours. Another tour follows to Germany in April 2020.
Yip will continue her relationship with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta as Conductor Emeritus. A search for a new Music Director is under way.
