Lingnan University, Asia Pacific Higher Education Research Partnership (APHERP) and IAFOR co-hosted the Conference for Higher Education Research Hong Kong 2018 from 19 to 21 October 2018 at Lingnan University. We have invited Wong Bing Lai Music and Performing Arts Unit to arrange a musical performance during Tea Reception. Music across different cultures and practices would mean crossing boundaries, encountering new paths and bringing traditions forward. With jazz musician, Mr Andrea Marcelli (Lingnan's Musician-in-Residence from 19/9/2018 to 31/10/2018); Chinese dulcimer player, Dr Ip Kim-ho (Associate Professor of Practice, Lingnan University) and vocalist/guitarist, Mr Gordon Ho (Year 3 Lingnan student) performed new possibilities of creativity in music.
The initiative to encourage young musicians and students to explore creativity through music-making activities will be further supported by the new course, Creative Instrumental Ensemble (MPA2001), offered by Wong Bing Lai Music and Performing Arts Unit of the Lingnan University.
