Performances@Lingnan Series finished beautifully with 'My Fair Lady'
The Wong Bing Lai Music and Performing Arts Unit concluded its 2018-19 season with two highly contrasting events. On 26 March, a choral performance entitled “The Folk Tradition” was hosted in the Leung Fong Oi Wan Art Gallery, featuring the Hong Kong Bach Chamber Choir and Lingnan’s Musician-in-Residence, Prof Stephen Ng. The concert presented a variety of folk songs ranging from 11th century Gregorian chant to 20th century contemporary tunes. It drew an audience of some 140 for an evening of choral chamber music.

Co-presented with the Department of English, the first-ever student production of musical theatre at Lingnan also marked the close of the season. It brought together local and international student talents in drama, dance and music to perform My Fair Lady, a musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s stage play. An audience of some 400 assembled to enjoy the musical on 9 and 10 April at Ben C. M. Wong Lecture Theatre.
