Welcome to Musicphilic Winds

Based on the fact that there are more and more alumni bands and youth bands in Hong Kong, many adult musicians with independent backgrounds may not find a suitable band to play in. Musicphilic Winds was established as a community band in September 2008, which aims at providing an open, independent and background-free music-making place for such musicians.

Musicphilic Winds has performed in various occasions, including shopping mall shows. The band host an exchange programme with Republic Polytechnic Wind Symphony from Singapore in February 2009, and then performed in Hong Kong Band Fair 2009. Following the great Premiere Concert held in December 2009, Musicphilic Winds host an annual concert successfully in every year. They also performed in Hong Kong International Band Fair 2011 and 2013. In November 2011, they host a wonderful annual concert along with Double Mallet Ringers, a handbell choir, as a guest performer. They continue to receive recognition from large local audiences with the success of annual concerts held every year. In the annual concerts held in November 2015 and December 2017, they invited SDM Jazz & Balllet Academie to give together well-acclaimed performances with diversified programmes.

The “-philic” of “Musicphilic” means affinity. The name “Musicphilic” represents that we are a group of music lovers and players who have an affinity for music, who are able to communicate through music, and who are moved by music. Musicphilic Winds is now composed of approximately 50 players with Mr. Yip Chun Kit as the Music Director and Principal Conductor.
