Music Salon: Re-Tune
Re-Tune
Regrettably, our Music Salons in the First Semester, like many other music events in Hong Kong, were cancelled, due to the local social unrests. Now it’s time to re-wind the fun and joy of music stories and friendship; and re-spin the intellectual swirls via music. Let’s re-kindle the spark of our music lives! Our moody atmosphere and audiophile sound system are all re-set and ready for you.

 1. Taiwan Tunes (3/2) This session was cancelled.
Upon return from the Taiwan Elections Study Tour, we will share with you the latest music and happenings there. You may of course bring in your favorite choices too.
