The Windpipe Chinese Music Ensemble is a professional Chinese chamber music ensemble with its focus on the local community and on producing quality chamber concerts. Founded in 2003, it has a mission of developing Chinese music culture in Hong Kong. From its traditional Lingnan culture foundations to merging the aesthetics of the East and West, the Ensemble lives up to its artistic motto of “small but elegant, simple but refined” by presenting traditional and contemporary works with a distinctive local flair. In 2011, the Ensemble was incorporated as the “Windpipe Chinese Music Ensemble Limited”, with renowned conductor Ho Man-chuen as its Artistic Advisor and the Ensemble’s founder, Chan Chiu-yin, as Executive Director. It was a landmark for the way forward for the Ensemble. The Ensemble is a grantee of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and a charitable institution of a public character in Hong Kong.
